  1. It would be nice if you could set and adjust stop-loss parameters for individual securities in a portfolio, rather than just the overall portfolio.

    This way you could give a larger stop-loss percentage to the more volatile positions, and a a smaller to the more conservative.

    This feature is now available by right-clicking on a holding and choosing Edit Stop Criteria.

  2. VV allows you to graph a watchlist, but not a portfolio (as far as I know). Allow the same functionality so you can track the RT of your consolidated portfolio, compare performance vs the VVC or other metrics, etc.

  3. It doesn't make sense to offer fine-tuning of Backtests using Timing Options (i.e. Confirmed Calls, Primary Wave, DEW) and then not be able to apply that fine-tuning to your Portfolio Automation. It defeats the purpose of adding it to your Backtest.

    All alerts sent through Portfolio Automation now contain the name of the portfolio as well as the holding that triggered the alert.

  6. Alerts going to an optional (2nd registered email) mobile cellphone number would be very useful. I am not stationary at my account email the entire day to receive alerts. I also do not want the messages sent to my account email address to show up on my cellphone. This would require allowing a seperate email address to be registered rather than only being able to utilize the account email address for ALERTS.

  7. On portfolios set up with a %Gain/Loss stop, I would like Portfolio Alerts to specify which part of the stop was met... the gain or the loss

  8. The Genius allows to edit different stop prices for each stock, which is a very valuable feature. However, they return all to the default value after the Genius is turned off and on again.

    In the latest version of VectorVest 7, the Genius will ask you if you want to keep your existing stop criteria when reactivating automation. Select “Keep Existing” to prevent your stop criteria from being overwritten by the defaults.

    Average True Range is now available in VectorVest 7 with ProTrader as a stop criteria for both BackTests and Portfolio Automation.

  10. I have multiple portfolios running different strategies. I put them all in a group. I would like to avoid buying duplicates across these portfolios.

    To manually enter a purchase price, type the actual Price into the Price/Share textbox instead of clicking Get Price on the Place Trade dialog.

  12. Make an option to delete or hide the model portfolios. It is very frustrating to have my portfolios get crowded out by something I do not use or need.

    We have added a new checkbox at the top of the Portfolios to hide/show the VectorVest Model Portfolios in the new 1.4 release of VectorVest 7. If you don’t have it yet, you should be receiving the update in the next few days.

    You can accurately recreate your actual portfolio by entering the number of shares and the price you paid when adding the trades to the portfolio.

    Just make sure the correct Commission fee is entered into the Portfolio’s settings to make each holding’s cost basis calculate correctly.

  14. Longer term traders need weekly stop modes for Backtesting and Portfolion Management as provided in VV6,not just daily stops.

  15. Many times, when running a portfolio with stop losses, the same stock is repurchased the same day it was sold. An adjustable time delay, as in the simulator would be helpful.
