  1. Add total losses to vv 7 autotester summary. Total gain is provided but the total win$/loss$ isn't

    Expectancy =(win rate*avg win + loss rate*avg loss) This can not be calculated in VV7. Avg loss must be added to summary

  2. For BackTests, add sorts by date (created/last modf'd) to assist in maintaining/updating large lists

    As a start to better managing 250 backtests, being able to sort them by date "last modified" would be useful in identifying those of most interest

  3. No volume, VV 7 purchases anyway

    If you use purchase on next days open, VV 7 will still buy the stock, even if there is no volume. I tried vol > 0, but that doesn't work on the next days' open purchase. In this search, I preferred not to use a 50 day average amount of volume. Example, GLBZ on 12/23/10. I think VV 7 needs to have a default setting built in, to not buy when there is no volume.

  5. Add %G/L to each security in BackTest Transaction Log

    On VectorVest 7 Intraday, at the backtest section add the %G/L on each of the securities once you open the transaction log. Currently, you get the %G/L for the whole portafolio, but not for each security.

  7. Access Views from BackTest

    Would you please add to the backtesting the ability to check the views on the day that the stop criteria is met.
    You already indicate it is a good criteria to check if you were to reinvest today, so isn't it natural to have this capability when back testing?

    I have discovered with the old Vector Vest that selling the whole portfolio when you have two red lights can significantly
    improve investing success. But this cannot be done with the new software.

  9. add Standard Deviation or some measure of volatility to backtest Reports

    or if you want to stick with a visual of the equity curve, allow an overlay of a market index like the S&P 500 for visual comparison

    In the backtest, I am still seeing a yellow green number for the GAIN/LOSS, and the ARR. This is still difficult to see. You helped me change the colors elsewhere in the V.V.7 but I can not find out how to change this color.

  17. VVC Stock history, removed

    DO NOT remove the "history" of a stock's performance for those stocks that have been removed the VVC Database. By removing the history, you are skewing the results of the Simulator, a tool that I rely heavily upon.

  18. Backtest and Quicktest dates in VV7

    Please allow start and end dates to stay fixed from one test to the next so a series of tests can be run on different strategies.

  19. Allow user defined "notes" fields in backtest chart.

    As many as desired - to allow user selected sorts of backtest results. 3 should be plenty. Right now you can only create a field if it is a "formula"

  20. Color Guard display for Date Line or Crosshair marker graph

    Add a tiny Color Guard display (just the three colors) as you move the Date cursor or Crosshair cursor across a graph. This would help in backtesting or figuring out why a stock went with or against the general market.
