There is a tool-tip explaining the blue star on the backtest listing page:

That is the default option as it is dictated by your "Max Positions".

As indicated above, in that test, you had your starting balance configured at $100,000 and the trade size at $100,000. Additionally you configured your test to not allow a negative balance.

Based on your configuration, you can only have a single position initially. If that position results in a loss, you are unable to initiate any more positions, based on your settings, as it would drop you to a negative balance.

According to your backtest configuration: "EMA xo Fibma13 hot market", you have a starting balance of $100,000 and a trade size of $100,000. Your first trade is a net loss, combine that with the setting of "Allow Negative Balance" set to "No", you are unable to make additional trades.

You are correct the open is used (as configured in your test.) Because this is the last day of the backtest, and the following "open" is not available, the default "open" price is chosen.

SCTY does not appear in Backtest #1 due to item #4 from the previously supplied help topic:



BLDP and SCTY exited at OPEN on 4/7/2014 in "Backtest #3" because they apparently met your trigger, as indicated on the Trades tab. Which, based on your test settings, directs that the "OPEN" price is used.

If this does not match your records, please let us know.

Thank you,

If possible, can you provide more details concerning the problem you are experiencing? Does this occur with all filters or only specific saved filters? Any additional details you can provide will help us further troubleshoot any problems you may be experiencing.

Thank you,

Concerning the first item you mention. It is very common for a trade to appear in one time-frame, but not another depending on your backtest settings. We recommend reviewing:

http://www.stockfetcher.com/help/Why-did-a-particular-stock-not-appear-as-a-trade/100288

With respect to the second item, it is difficult for us to fully understand the issue you are reporting without reviewing a specific saved backtest and related trades/dates. Please provide this information and we would be more than happy to investigate the issue further.

Thank you,

Hi,

This is not currently possible. We'll take a look into what it would take for supporting line widths as well as colors with the filtering syntax.
