Only true backtest you will get is to run the scan, pick the stocks you think look best and papertrade it.

Personally I don't find the backtest feature in SF very useful. Even after all these years here, I've yet to see a filter that was back tested with high results and posted so members could try it out and see how good a filter it is.

After eliminating stocks with very little volume FXE, BP and AOB remained. FXE and BP moved off their lows and FXE would have made enough money to be worthwile. Not convinced at all.....
