Why is the + sign not allowed by SF in filters. I am trying set command and using + to add two set commands but it is not picking up.

It is allowed. Please post your specific filter syntax and I'm guessing your issue can be easily solved.

Thanks Kevin. Let me inform you that using the below it used to work fine until today when I noticed that the + sign disappeared and distorted my results.

set{rsi1dayago, rsi(2) 1 day ago}
set{rsi10, rsi(2) + rsi1dayago}
rsi10 < 10
rsi1dayago > rsi(2)

I have included + sign here but when I try this on filter in backtest it disappears. Don't know why?
Thanks for help.

set{rsi10, rsi(2) + rsi1dayago}
rsi10 < 10
rsi1dayago > rsi(2)

+++++++++++++

Seems to be working fine here without any changes.
