  1. Baktest results on My Backtest page do not match results from 'Report Summary' (Tot Value, % G/L, % Winners) I understand that they would match if all positions were closed at end of backtest. However we may want to keep equities open so test can continue in future. I suggest that the two reports be set up to match even when backtest positions not closed

  2. Currently the Report available for VV7 backtests are pretty pitiful. I know you are working hard to improve VV7. The backtest reports need to be as complete as they are in the Simulator.

  3. This feature is available in Simulator to show how robust the search is during length of test and avoid situations where purchase of unreal amount of stocks come up on a buy signal. Now it can only be done manually after stopping at each turn. Should be an easy addition.

  7. VV7 and VV6 still pick up these stocks as not being pink, although they are: NMTI, SUPR, DJSP, CCME, These stocks can skew results of tests and there may be more.

  8. For testing ideas with very volatile stocks, it would be good to avoid the broker's penalty for buying/selling stocks on the same day they were sold/bought. This would supplement the "don't rebuy a stock for x-number of days" option.

  11. Segregate search days from entry days: Allow a search on a green day, but an entry on a separate day, like a yellow pullback day

  13. It is unclear how to set this to use the stop criteria of 20% loss or 50% gain.

  14. Add more flexibility for stops on backtests such as a Profit stop percentage at a gain combined with a trailing stop loss or an ATR stop loss.

  15. In Vectorvest 6 you had the option to buy at the open and sell at the close, or buy at the close and sell at the open, etc.

    In Vestorvest 7 you must buy and sell at the same time, buy/sell at close, buy/sell at open.

    Is it possible to have the VV6 flexibility put into VV7 ? I really need it for the type of backtesting I do.

  16. Currently the Detrended price oscillator and moving average for the VVC is used in backtesting. It would be great to have this as a default, but be able as a user to override this and enter IWM if I am testing a small cap strategy, or GDX if I am testing a strategy that focuses on precious metals stocks. Let me pick a symbol for the DEW entry/exits that represents the class of stocks my strategy is working with!

  18. It would be useful, especially for those who don't want to flip stocks often, to include a "turnover" calculation as part of a Back-Test.

    While this can be approximated by the number of trades, the duration of the test is also a factor. 10 trades over 100 days is very different from 10 trades over 20 days.

    If there is no obvious turnover calculation, an "average days held", for all positions taken during the test, would suffice.

    Max draw-down is a measure of how much pain one may have to tolerate. A turnover measure would be a measure of portfolio…
