For any filter it seems you can go back test the performance in multiple ways, but it assumes that once having purchased the stock that you hold it for the time period indefinitely. How can you set a stop loss, or trailing stop in the scan itself to alter Perf% in order to calculate based on that parameter vs. just assuming to position is held to current date?

thanks for assistance looking forward to contributing to the site

Unfortunately SF discontinued the previous backtesting functionality on this site. At this point in time the only option is to use another service - I personally use Stratasearch which has excellent backtesting capabilities, including the use of trailing stops.
