I don't think this is possible in SF right now.

Coal Miner41,

I asked SF the same question a few days ago and what Kevin says is correct. It sounds like you are using something from one of Larry Connors books or what used to be called seasonality by a now defunct newsletter (market Logic, which could be the name of their book).

I traded the seasonality system during the last half of the 1990's and made a ton of money which I eventually gave most of back by changing the rules. The simplicity of the system and the ability to use leverage made this a great system...until it stopped working. I think Connors' version is backed by good research and uses different entry dates. When Market Logic sold to Wiley Publishing, seasonality was associated with a new newsletter which offered a simple metod for backtesting end of month trades. I don't recall if they offered mid month backtesting. I remain very interested in this type system and would like to find a way to backtest Connors' version. If you find a way, please post it.

Kevin likes Connors systems and hopefully he will share his thoughts on Connors system.
