  1. BackTest Using a 30,60,90 day price perf. div. by ATR

    Hi,

    I would like to create a search and back test using a

    30+60+90 day price performance divided by ATR or STDEV sorted in descending order.

    Is there a way to do something like this or something which comes close to this concept?

    I am missing ATR or any volatility function other than BB, do you plan to include this into the protrader?

  5. BUG in REC=S for 2 weeks

    I backtested a portfolio (using Stalwarts) with long STOP at REC=S for 2 weeks. Looking at the stocks which were stopped-out, and the history of the stocks, they were stopped at less than 2 wks. Please fix.

  6. Limit Investment Percentage In Back-Test, AutoTester

    Allow back-testing to limit the portfolio amount to be invested. This would be useful for users of AutoTester, as well as those who execute tests manually.

    For example: "During Confirmed Up, I want to ramp up to 100% invested. During Confirmed Down, I still want to buy long (?from a short ETFs list?), but only maintain positions up to 50% invested."

    There are currently these two mutually exclusive choices:
    ( ) Invest all buying power
    (O) Invest average portfolio value

    I am suggesting a cap, by which these two are constrained:
    Limit overall portfolio exposure to [______] %

    If I…

  7. Graph of Trade History auto displays the trade from open-to-close.

    I would like to see the BackTest's Trade History allow a Graph to open to the trade dates, open-to-close. If the trade (especially from a backtest) was June 5 to Sept 20, show the graph from June 5 to Sept 20.

    This avoids an excessive manual step, to locate the trade timeframe. One can inspect other graph layouts, and may need to expand the time window slightly, to see chart warning signs.

    This feature would be the alternative to manually scrolling/expanding/contracting, to the trade timeframe that needs to be inspected.

  8. Allow Backtest to be Re-Run on Search Change

    If a backtest is completed, and the search parameters/sort is modified, the backtest is not enabled to be re-run (Finish and Rerun). Some change must be made to the backtest parms, or a complete BT copy must be made.

    Sometimes, I am able to manually re-run to the start date, then push the Run To bar to the end date. This tends to produce execution failure messages.

    It seems that a back test defintion would know the last update timestamp of its currently selected search, and treat that as a re-runnable change.

    Other than that, a brute-force Rerun command would…
