Anyone have any success incorporating averaging down into the backtest criteria? For example, buy XYZ per the filter, then buy it again upon a 20% drop, then buy again upon another 20% drop.

I don't have a Stockfetcher backtest strategy but I have been using an avr down strategy for years and it has nearly always worked well.

A recent example would be USO--started buying under 20 down to about 18--didn't make a fortune but did win every trade once it recovered.
