For the record, this is NOT Holygrail. I am his trading buddy.

I made an addition to Muddy's BB filter (works on any filter) that allows you to see how much you could have made had you traded the stocks from the filter. The way the Stockfetcher backtest works, the close or last price is used to calculate performance. This is only partially accurate especially if you are a daytrader.

What I wanted to see was the High - Close to see if there was a potential to make/take profit.

Check this out...

Fetcher[set{x,high - open} set{y,x / open} set{ppct,100 * y}
SHOW STOCKS WHERE CLOSE HAS BEEN DECREASING OVER THE LAST 3 DAYS AND AVERAGE VOLUME(90)IS ABOVE 100,000 AND CLOSE PRICE IS BETWEEN 1 AND 10 AND PRICE TOUCHED LOWER BOLLINGER BAND(20)
and add column x
and add column ppct
]



Now when you run a back test you can download the results and use EXCEL to calculate totals. (Hey Stockfetcher, how about calculating totals?)

Also, if you know you trade 1,000 shares, you can multiply X by 1000 to get profit dollars.

I hope this is of some use.
