Is there a way that a Watchlist can be used in a backtest? Or is there a way that a watchlist can be added into a filter, so it would only pull up the stocks from a watchlist?

If you have a watchlist of say,(QQQQ,DIA,SPY) this is how they would come up on its own filter. I can check performance by changing the offset, but in order to get a good backtest you must link it to any filter designed for those stocks..kapesh?.....Once you add a filter there is no need to backtest from watchlist because those are the only stocks in your filter and its watchlist

Hope this isn't oranges for apples but it helped me find something I wasn't looking for!!!

Example:watchlist of only these stocks

Fetcher[/* Market Filter */

set{xx,count(open equals ind(qqqq, open),1) * count(volume equals ind(qqqq, volume),1)}

set{xy,count(open equals ind(dia, open),1) * count(volume equals ind(dia, volume),1)}

set{xz,count(open equals ind(spy, open),1) * count(volume equals ind(spy, volume),1)}

set{yy, xx + xy}
set{yz, xz + yy}

yz equal 1



( search market trend,)
