We hoped the second link, as well as the separate email response to you, explained "you expect us to with SF". If possible can you provide what additional details you are looking for when considering the supplied link, as well as email response below?

Hi,

Thank you for the feedback. StockFetcher is a stock screening and charting service. We believe there is a distinction between stock screening and trading strategy. If you are looking for a service to simulate your trading strategy, StockFetcher would not be the correct service for you.

The intent of the StockFetcher "backtesting" tool is to provide insights on how your StockFetcher screens performed in the past. We make no claims that StockFetcher backtesting serve as a "real-world" simulation of your approach, and have no intentions of providing such a service.

If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to send us an email.

Thank you,

StockFetcher.com Support

Announcements · Backtesting: Reference Entry Date Values

msg #122299
12/18/2014 12:19:06 PM

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.

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?
