  2. Back tests should be prevented from selling and buying of the same stock on the same day. Perhaps a set number of trading days before it can qualify again.

    Larry, try using the Limit Repurchsaes feature in the BackTester. You can set it to not purchase the same stock for the next # of days that you specify. It is under the More Settings tab in Automation Rules.

  3. When backtesting, replacement stocks in my tests are often the same stock so that I'd be trading the same stock several times within 30 days, often with losses I couldn't write off in real trading because of "wash sale" rule. Allow me to restrict buying closed positions to simulate real tax planning of trades.

    This issue has been fixed and will be available in the next update we release for VectorVest 7.

  5. After running a backtest, the transaction log lists the Buys and Sells in batches, not in the order that they occured. A customer has requested that, if possible, this be listed in the order that it occured as it does not do so on the left under Status when the backtest is executed manually.

    This is no longer an issue in VectorVest 7, please let us know if you’re still having any issues.

  7. It would be helpful to see the market changes in the backtester to help evaluate a strategy's effectiveness.

    weekly (as well as daily) pricing modes are available as of version 1.2.1

  9. On BackTest in VectorVest 7, there are 4 built-in choices to choose from in Market Timing List. But I miss the closing position and Buying from search option that we have in VV-usa. I'd like to use this option to get out and get-in in time of my own determiniation. We have better control of handling portfolio with this option.
    Thank you.

    If i understand you correctly, you can accomplish this by unchecking ‘use market timing’ in the second step of the backtest wizard. doing so will give you just one set of automation rules, in which you can choose to buy long or sell short, thereby giving you a test where you’re always long or always short.

  15. I've been running extensive backtests and have noticed that the applications slows down alot after 25 to 30 backtests in one session. Windows Task Manager shows the memory usage grow with each backtest that is run, but doesn't release that memory when it finishes.

    you have to do it manually, but you can now change the stop criteria at any given point in time during a backtest… in the holdings view, use the Edit Stops button.

  17. Please add a tool to delete multiple backtests. currently can only delete one at a time.

    Use the Ctrl or Shift key to select multiple backtests for deletion at one time.

  18. Thanks for Market timing in the backtester. But, it should be available to simulator users without having to purchase Real Time. It is a function of the Simulator, which will eventually be integrated into VV7. So it would be great allow your simulator users access to it...please.
    Thanks

  19. The Green Light buying approach has been promoted much this past year .. and for good reason. I would like to have this feature added so when backtesting you can set that you can buy only on a Green Light.
