open equals ind(aapl, open) and volume equals ind(aapl, volume)
and Parabolic SAR(0.02,0.2) is below low
and Parabolic SAR(0.02,0.2)1 day ago is above high 1 day ago

Its not doing the backtesting correctly. It isnt entering and exiting when I need it to. This is what I am trying to do. I am trying to run a filter on AAPL or any stock for that matter where the system buys the stock the day it crosses the parabolic sar and sells the day it crosses to the upside. It is buying and selling random. I put the selling trigger as
Parabolic SAR(0.02,0.2) is above high

its not holding the stock the full length of time. It will hold it for various times such as 5 days etc. I do not have any other selling triggers in there. Please help. Thanks.

Its not the stock its the backtesting I am interested in no matter what stock it is. I like the parabolic SAR indicator for telling me when to buy and sell. It is very accurate.

Actually you can just check previous highest or previous lowest point which will become the beginning dot of next parabolic curve, and you can set this critical point as your entry or exit point for the trading. I found most of time it is useful, especially the trend is obviously on the way.

Good luck!

yeah its getting on my nerves. I signed up for the extra service so I am paying twice as much now and the backtesting doesn't work. I get mixed results and results that I am not expecting. Like the filters work but when I put them in the backtesting they don't produce the same results. This is an issue that has to be addressed.
