Announcements · Backtesting: Reference Entry Date Values

msg #122299

You can now reference measures/values based on the entry date in the "Exit Test" section of your backtests. Previously, the only references were fixed to the various "stop" values. Now it is possible to access measures when defining your exit test(s).

This features uses the following syntax:

DATE(ENTRY,[measure])

For example, below is the syntax to create an exit test where the 10-day RSI increased more than 30 points from entry:

RSI(10) minus DATE(ENTRY,RSI(10)) is above 30

Another example where an exit test is based on the current bar low exceeding the high from the entry date:

low is above DATE(ENTRY,high)

Please note that the "DATE()" function is valid in regular filter syntax (as seen here) the "ENTRY" argument is only valid when used in backtest exit tests.

Let us know if you have any question!

Unfortunately, we don't see the issue you mention. Please provide a specific example that illustrates the issue. We see that the commission is reflected in both.

Option #1 on the "Advanced" tab allows you to choose your selection order via the "select by" phrase.

Thank you. We see commissions in equity summary/details for both the long and short example. If possible can you provide specific details that illustrate the problem you are experiencing?

Unfortunately, looking at your saved tests, "Test - Short" is not a completed test. If possible, can you run the test so we are able to compare the final results/summary with "Test Long"?

Thank you,

General Discussion · SF - Can you make the following part of the syntax?

Hi Kevin -

We sure wish it was a simple as you make it sound! If we are not mistaken StrataSearch is a Windows-based application that installs locally on your Windows PC and relies on your PC's resources? As I am sure you are no doubt aware, StockFetcher is much different, as all of the data and computations are done in our server environment -- an environment shared by many users at the same time!

Having your local PC as the compute engine provides a great deal of power and flexibility to enable the computations that can be done. That said, we feel like we are able to provide a fairly high level of complexity through StockFetcher even though it doesn't require special software/resources (or specific operating systems) on your part outside of a modern internet browser.

We'd sure like to do everything you mention, but that is probably not possible, and is why options exist.

Sorry for the delay in our response, we did read your initial message yesterday afternoon. However, we wanted to take some time to fully understand and research instead of immediately responding with "we will look into it".

Due to performance considerations it is very unlikely we will add this feature to StockFetcher. Assuming we correctly understand your request, you are effectively looking for a measure in a filter based on the results from a filter. In other words, this would be comparable to the resources required to run a backtest for every filter result/chart.

If you have any questions, or if we missed the mark as far as what you are looking for, please let us know.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, we are still unable to reproduce the problem. On step #5, clicking the blue "next" arrow places us on September 10, 2014. The symbol in the chart (and next symbol) match the list from the filter results:

Hi,

Here are the steps we are taking (see the image below for reference)

1. Run a filter
2. Click FEIM
** Note FISB is the next symbol
3. Offset your filter by a month
4. Click CACG (the first result)
** Note - PCZ is the next symbol in the popup
5. Offset the filter by another month
6. Click CLBH
** Note SBKO is the nex filter in the popup

Are you clicking on the symbol in the results list to update the popup?
