  1. I would like to see a gain\loss stop criteria that allows for trailing stops. My broker can do this.

    My brokers conditional stop triggers has an option to stop on a gain price or trailing stop %. I would like to have this option in back tests.

  3. Backtest Delete

    In Intraday Backtest: Please add a feature to delete more than one item at a time. Deleting each one individually takes allot of time.

    This feature now exists in the VectorVest 7 BackTester.

    To use it, activate the Limit Duplicates setting in the More Settings tab of the BackTest’s Automation Rules. You can then select how many days to not repurchase a stock that was previously sold.

    This setting will also be available in Portfolio Automation in the next update to VectorVest 7.

  5. Backtest needs to test with a market timer, not over a single time period. Portfolio VV6 does this.

    At the end of a backtest, the balance is reported, but not carried forward to the next signal.

    Market timing in the VV7 backtester for US markets has been released. RealTime subscribers have immediate access. Intraday subscribers can get a free 2-week trial.

  6. Be able to backtest a strategy with Buying on Green Light

    The Green Light buying approach has been promoted much this past year .. and for good reason. I would like to have this feature added so when backtesting you can set that you can buy only on a Green Light.

    weekly (as well as daily) pricing modes are available as of version 1.2.1

  11. In Backtests, give option that restricts duplicates of closed positions too (a la wash sale rule).

    When backtesting, replacement stocks in my tests are often the same stock so that I'd be trading the same stock several times within 30 days, often with losses I couldn't write off in real trading because of "wash sale" rule. Allow me to restrict buying closed positions to simulate real tax planning of trades.

  12. When using the backtester there are many instances of selling a stock due to the stop criteria and then buying it again because it qualifies

    Back tests should be prevented from selling and buying of the same stock on the same day. Perhaps a set number of trading days before it can qualify again.

    If i understand you correctly, you can accomplish this by unchecking ‘use market timing’ in the second step of the backtest wizard. doing so will give you just one set of automation rules, in which you can choose to buy long or sell short, thereby giving you a test where you’re always long or always short.

  15. memory leak

    I've been running extensive backtests and have noticed that the applications slows down alot after 25 to 30 backtests in one session. Windows Task Manager shows the memory usage grow with each backtest that is run, but doesn't release that memory when it finishes.

  20. Backtest Transactions

    After running a backtest, the transaction log lists the Buys and Sells in batches, not in the order that they occured. A customer has requested that, if possible, this be listed in the order that it occured as it does not do so on the left under Status when the backtest is executed manually.
