    This feature now exists in the VectorVest 7 BackTester.

    To use it, activate the Limit Duplicates setting in the More Settings tab of the BackTest’s Automation Rules. You can then select how many days to not repurchase a stock that was previously sold.

    This setting will also be available in Portfolio Automation in the next update to VectorVest 7.

  5. At the end of a backtest, the balance is reported, but not carried forward to the next signal.

  7. 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.

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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

    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.

  16. 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.
