I just backtested a filter that resulted in a huge loss so I decided to reverse the entry from a long to a short. Wouldn't the results be reversed? No, the results were very similar...another huge loss. Anyone understand this?

We are sorry you do not feel the testing is accurate. If you can please provide an example test as well as trades that should/should-not have appeared in the results, that will help us further troubleshoot any issues you may be experiencing. Support
