I would like to see a gain\loss stop criteria that allows for trailing stops. My broker can do this.
My brokers conditional stop triggers has an option to stop on a gain price or trailing stop %. I would like to have this option in back tests.
This feature is now available in trailing stops for both Portfolio Automation and BackTests.

I believe the results on some of your searches would be improved with a % gain, % trailing stop combo that we can backtest.

I like Edward Guzis comment. We need to get the VV6 Simulator ported into VV7 Real Time and fully integrated with Backtester and Portfolios.

Currently have to run 2 portfolios to do this. Sure would be nice to run one. Can often increase returns by using ts.

I agree. Adding this criterium to a backtest gives a better simulation of reality.
Edward Guzis commented
This is possible in Prographics 6 Simulator but not VV7 Backtests
