  2. Add BSR column to sector / industry viewer

    Add the BSR rating to the industry and sector viewer pages and also add this as a field for use in Unisearch. This would allow additional flexibility in using industry/sector in selecting stocks.

  4. Create Custom Timing

    Ability to use VV fields to create own custom timing based on VVC.
    Could be a tool that can be automatically applied in the AutoTester to backtest ideas.
    I.e. create your own Market TIming (that you can save), using available fields & rules, to create Long, Short and Neutral signals that you can backtest and use in teh future.
    If ever created, you could also run a competition for users to run their timing system on backtests and future to explore ideas and timing that suits different types of users.

  6. Add Strategy to the Portfolio Summary Report

    For the basic Portfolio Summary Report, the Strategy used should be added to the report, along with all the parameters of the strategy.

    This will be quite helpful when comparing numerous results for both live and back testing (and eliminates having to put it within the Remarks or Title of the Portfolio).

  7. The BSR needs to be reconfigured

    The BSR needs to be reconfigured to eliminate inaccuracy and distortion caused by double counting. Stocks within ETFs and Market Industries are counted twice. Similarly, stocks within Contra ETFs are counted inversely. The simple solution is to eliminate all ETFs and all securities within Market industries from the BSR calculation.

  11. Build "Searches" of all ETFs, with and without the leveraged funds

    I'd like to be able to do "Searches" of all ETFs with and without the leveraged funds. Vector Vest is woefully short of data to use for investing in ETFs. A list of all available ETFs with and without the leveraged funds would be a start.

  12. Graph a portfolio

    VV allows you to graph a watchlist, but not a portfolio (as far as I know). Allow the same functionality so you can track the RT of your consolidated portfolio, compare performance vs the VVC or other metrics, etc.

  17. ATR custom field

    Include more ProTrader parameters in the custom field builder. For example, I would like to divide current price by the 10d ATR. Many more useful searches could be created if all the VV standard fields could be utilized in the custom field builder it, and I would buy it.

  19. Identify Rising and Falling MAs

    I would like to be able to buy stocks crossing a RISING MA and sell stocks crossing a FALLING MA. I can see no way to do that in VV6, VV7 or ProTrader. Something simple like MA Day 1>/< MA Day-1 would great.

  20. Be alerted with news connected to your watchlist so you know your news right away.

    Be alerted right away when their is news about any of your stocks in your watchlist. You shouldnt have to go look for the new news you should be alerted right away as it becomes available. Most new is very time sensitive and I want to know RIGHT AWAY as it's available.
