When we look for results in the past few days, we have to put in the number of days we want to go back to see the filter result. Isn't there a quick way of looking at results for the past 20 days or so and see the results for each day in big result set.

For example, if I want to display result from filter for the past 20 days, I would like to see Day 20 showing 10 stocks, Day 19 showing 5 stocks, Day 18 showing 3 stocks, etc......

Can this be possible in one screen or do I have to see the results individually for each day?

I agree that there does need to be a better way of "backtesting". When I back test I would like to see how it performed a month ago... not always finishing with TODAY, but back test for a given period, say 20 days, then apply this to "3 months ago" ..."6 months ago" ... "" months ago" etc ... If I "back test" for ten days ... or 30 days, it will always be biased as to what the market is doing today.

If the market has a phenominal rally ... then guess what ... all my screens are showing results that are swayed by this recent rally.

There has to be a better way ....
