  2. I would like to have a new Stop Loss Strategy that would enable me to buy the top 10 stocks from a given strategy and hold them until they fall out of the top 15. This would enable me to continually upgrade my portfolio without excessive whipsaw trading. I would particularly like to have the capability of testing this new stop loss feature in the VV Simulator.

  3. Allow a different settings for neutrals after an up signal and after a down signal. This would be useful when testing shorts and contra ETFs which often perform better contrary to the direction of the market.

  4. Back Test Option to use and set as default - Buy at Next Day's Open and Sell at Next Day's Open. It would produce much more realistic results than the Same Day Closes we are currently using.

  5. Suggest add one if not two fields in BackTest Trade History Report , namely Industry and Sector . This will allow better analysis of past results of the various strategies

  6. The Singapore market trade in lots of 1000 shares and not 100 shares. Can we have the "Round Lots" defined in increments of 1,000 shares in the Back Test, Portfolio Management, Quick Test, etc?

    FYI the Odd Lot counters here are very illiquid and the Bid-Ask spreads are just too wide to even trade with.

  7. To backtest individual stocks in VV7 you have to create a watchlist and then create a search that equals your watchlist. It is great that we can backtest a search but it would be great to have the ability to backtest existing watchlists and to create your own list of stocks inside the backtest tab of VV7.

  8. It would be quite beneficial to users if some of the successful strategy searches presented in earlier SOTW sessions this year are tracked in the model portfolios with updated back tester results once per week. I notice that these strategies typically involve taking long positions only, and staying in cash on a Confirmed Down market call. Also, unsuccessful searches such as the RT Kicker Combo pair involving Blyar's Bottom Feeder should be removed from tracking.

  9. At the moment you cannot exit a position at the trailing stop but rather at the close or next days average, which is always higher or lower than the trailing stop. This is not an accurate representation of real life as normally the position would be closed at the trailing stop.

  10. In the BackTester- I'd like several columns next to the start date and the end date- one to indicate C/UP or C/DN, and one to let me know what the MTI is on the start date and the end date.

  11. We can backtest any search using the Unisearch tool, but we cannot do the same backtesting when using the Viewer/stocks. This is where subscribers are told to start so why not have backtesting for this. In experimenting and using only the quick test that the viewer/stocks excelled beyond any of the 15 searches I tried.

  12. Add a stop parameter to allow for conditional triggers - a 10% daily loss or 10% from the purchase price, 10% off the purchase price or 15% from the previous high or some other combination.

    Allow for C/UP, C/DN, UPUP, UPDN, DNUP, DNDN to be additional conditions of buy or sell - ie. only execute the buy strategy during C/UP when the primary wave is UP.

    planned  ·  Timothy McGrath responded

    We are planning on adding these Market Timing conditions to BackTester soon.

  13. Since the Sure Fire Success trading system was developed using the RT kicker combo signals, no new combo pairs have been introduced for a long while using this system. I can understand this since the long-term market trend has stayed bullish, so the focus has shifted to mainly bullish strategies (using primarily confirmed up/down signals)shown in SOTW sessions during most of this year. These strategies tend to have much smaller max. drawdowns and less frequent trades.

    Has there been any research done on back tests of the SFS model portfolios currently being tracked by VV using MTI MA crossovers instead…

  14. Would you please consider adding more historical price data to the BackTester, along with the corresponding VectorVest timing signals (C/UP, C/DN, etc.)?

    More historic data will help test ideas across a broader variety of market conditions and avoid curve-fitting problems.

  16. 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"

  17. 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.

  18. I'd like to be able to rerun a backtest after changing the underlying UniSearch. As it is, I have to make a useless change to the test, initiate a run, stop, and go back and fix it and run it again. The Run button is not enabled unless a change is made to the test.
