  2. In the backtester under "More Settings" is "Close any position when entering this situation". I would like to close only bullish or short postions (L & S get confused with contras), i.e. when entering an Up condition I want to close all bearish positions and when entering a Down condition I want to close all bullish conditions. I'm surprised that VV doesn't already allow this. Thanks, Wayne

  3. To expand on the http://feedback.vectorvest.com/forums/35189-vectorvest-7/suggestions/2558843-the-ability-to-superimpose-a-graph-of-the-vvc-upo idea: give us the ability to use a user-defined parabolic stop on the equity curve in back-testing and portfolio as the basis for discontinuing a current strategy IN ADDITION TO existing stop criteria.

  4. Adding a column to the BackTester showing the ratio of the Annual Rate of Return to the Max Draw Down allows an investor to compare different strategies relative upside and downside potentials with this one number.

  6. If a backtest has a pending order that includes a stock I don't want, I want to be able to remove that stock from the list and have the backtester replace it with the next stock in line.

  7. Please make the "pending orders" list exportable (via copy/paste; print, email etc.). I know I can use the snipping tool, but that's far from convenient. I'd like to get a list of the next days trades that I can take to work to execute the next day or email to my broker for them to execute.

  8. Currently we have the ability to group backtests. But when you have a long list of backtests (I currently have over 500), it can take a long time to find one. So a useful feature would be a filter where user can search by 1. name (user types in a word and the filter finds all tests matching) 2. start date , the application will automatically find the bactests grouped by this start date (so user doesn't have to scroll up and down to find the required date) 3. end date (same logic as for start date).

  10. I am trying to use autotest to automate my buy/sell decisions. The tool would be more useful if you could update the recommendations with the actual shares and prices rather than the next day open or average depending on the option you have selected.

  12. Backtest menu when grouped such as upsearch, Consider saving my settings. Everytime I sign on I have to select the upsearch and sort by my preferred sorting. this is a bit of a time waster.
    I'd like to sign on and see my backtests saved as I set, (ie., upsearch then sorted by either name or %GL)

  13. There is a bug in backtester. When I step the test period forward one day at a time It does not detect a CDn and does not go to cash. If I back up a few days and then let it calculate forward those few days all at once it does detect the CDn and goes to cash.

  15. Currently we can step into the market by opening X positions per day until we reach total positions. I would like to add the option to delay X days before executing this logic. In manual testing of the DEW signal I have greatly reduced Max Drawdown using a delay while maintaining good gains.

  16. Add a Transaction Type column to all reports in Auto BackTester to show the reason for each transaction listed. Show Stop Loss Actions like Met Stop X% Gain or Met Stop X% Loss etc. Also Show Timing Signal Changed to C/Dn or C/Up or Neutral depending on Market Timing Signal used for Backtest.
    Overall I want to know what triggered the transaction.

  17. In AutoTester, allow for the ability to use different timing signals to drive up and down calls. For instance, allow for the use of the DEW on the up side and the Primary Wave on the down side.

  18. Allow more exit options such as: 1) entering on a DEW signal but exiting on a confirmed signal or 2) exit after x days in the trade or 3) entering on a pro-trader signal such as a MACD cross-over and then exiting on a confirmed signal.

  19. The Backtester already has the ability to "maintain <n> positions."

    I am suggesting that the test may also be configured to maintain some (one) measure at the time of making a purchase decision.

    Example: "Try to maintain RV > 1.00"

    Sometimes, it is correct to buy-in to a stock with RV < 1. But, the prudent investor needs to avoid collecting too many RV<1. The portfolio should be evaluated as a whole (I know the concept of viewing the average of the portfolio can be found in presentations).

    The same could be said for RT. If current positions have suddenly…

  20. I have a history of my purchases and would like to test sell strategies. I would like to just add a symbol and date and purchase price. Then test sell strategies on all stocks. i.e., % trailing stops. Also like the idea of selling at the stop price if it traded there, not at the close or open.
