  1. Export / Import a back test. Right now, a user has to post summary page 3 or in some other way communicate the back test settings so other users can duplicate the results. Having a file that users could share would be much more efficient.

  3. Trailing stop (and possibly other stops) are not being calculated correctly when using buy / sell at the current days close option. The error is that the system is using the high of the day that the stock was purchased at the close to calculated the trailing stop instead of using the days closing price to start the trailing stop calculation. This can result in the stop being triggered prematurely when the high is significantly higher than the closing price for that day. I back tested TQQQ from January 2016 to Feb 2023 and there were 6 times this happened.…

  4. After copying an existing back test, allow the user to change the $ or % of each holding and create a new test. This would be useful for testing new ideas particularly for buy and hold investors, such as retirees.

  6. I would like the ability to create my own custom market timing system based on things such at BSR and MTI. The ability to use this custom market timing signal in a backtest would be fantastic.

  7. A fixed number of days for a market time criteria would allow for swapping out your stock selections to continuously reflect the top selections of your watchlist. Any backtest currently done needs to be done manually since a 7 day(or however many) rerack and stack is not possible. This will allow you to keep riding your fastest horses.

  8. Currently, all backtests show up as a simple list.

    Providing folders as items in the list and allowing the users of VV7 to put similar backtests into folders would make the view less cluttered and more organized.

  9. Afford the ability to do multiple backtests simultaneously.

    Especially on updates to existing backtests.

    A graph display during the backtest is not entirely necessary; making the display optional would clutter the screen less.

    And potentially save on test run time.

    An option to either display a graph or a progress bar to show the percentage of the backtest completed should be made available.

  10. By allowing the export and import of backtest strategies would these strategies be shared or just archived.

    The same successful backtest strategy could be used on one or more VV regions (UK, Europe, Australia, Canada).

    These backtest strategies could be posted in a separate area (perhaps this forum) for other users to use and improve upon.

  11. We can use the index's (HUI, SPX....) in unisearch, and will get hits for specific dates that meet the criteria. When you go in to backtest using the exact same unisearch with an index, the index will never be 'purchased' in backtester. It would be nice to be able to backtest the index's using criteria setup in Unisearch.

  13. I had the graph layouts window opened while running a backtest and an error occurred. I could not access the backtest error window to click on the ok button because it opened behind the graph layouts window. I could see that the backtest error window was open when I hovered over the VV icon on the Windows Taskbar. Had to close VV using the Task Manager.

  14. Right now can only do automated backtest using same Market Timing Signal, for example Confirmed Up and Confirmed Down.

    Right now can do MANUAL backtest of MIXED Market Timing Signals of Dew Down and Primary Up but would like MIXED Market Timing Signals to be AUTOMATED.

  15. the Stop Criteria should be able to customized to any techincal or VectorVest creteria I set. Currently it's just too simple.

  16. Fix the output so that it generates all columns on a single page. Currently, CROR and Max Drawdown show up on a separate page.

    In addition, give the user the option to output either as a PDF or as an Excel doc.

  17. In both the Backtester and Portfolio I can use “Prior Day’s Low Price” as a stop. This is great for when I purchase a stock LONG, but there is not an equivalent stop for when I Sell Short. Adding “Prior Day’s High Price” as a stop would enable me to use the same logic when I sell short.

    I'd like to be able to make timing lists with the Backtester, specifying only a single stock and multiple purchase dates and multiple sale dates without using VV indicators, searches or watchlists -just the stock I'm interested in and what would have happened if I had bought and sold it on specific dates that I choose to include in the test. This was a great feature of Simulator when it was available.
