Hi,

When you have a chance, please provide us with an example of something you're searching for but unable to find. This will help us understand where we might improve the google based indexing process.

Thank you,

Announcements · StockFetcher Back-testing - Request for Feedback

msg #119432

We're looking for your feedback on changes to how StockFetcher addresses analyzing past filter results.

We understand that an important part of developing a StockFetcher screen is understanding how it performed in the past and how to modify a screen to improve the outcome; however, StockFetcher's back-testing platform admittedly has multiple shortcomings. These shortcomings result in a back-testing offering that is nowhere near as robust as other tools available on the market today.

We've always stressed that StockFetcher back-testing is used as a gauge of how a filter performs in the past. However, given the naming of the feature and the options available today, more stress (than intended) is placed on the trading mechanics of a back-test.

That said, we are looking to eliminate any emphasis on "simulation" and focus more on "analysis" of historical filter results. We want your feedback on what functionality you would like to see. For example:

  • specific statistics
  • possible export options for 3rd party simulators
  • report formats
  • public filter ranking statistics

Also, let us know if you have any preferred simulation tools, and how we might be able to work on bringing StockFetcher results into these other tools.

Finally, if you can't live without StockFetcher back-testing, let us know why that is. It is just that kind of feedback that would help direct us in the replacement functionality.

Thank you!

Tom

They are different measures:

ROI(%) - Multiply the average gain/loss by the ratio of the number of days in a year and average days held per trade.
Gain/Loss % - Average of the net change per trade
Realized Gain/Loss % - Average of of the realized net change per trade, based on equity settings.

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.
