One convenient future backtesting feature would be the ability to backtest all your filters on the backtest list, for the same time period, with one setting of the dates, without having to do it one filter at a time.

To further clarify my first suggestion:
Let's say there are 15 filters on the backtest list and we want to run a comparison of their performance under identical conditions.
We would set the conditions (time period, etc..) once, click on "GO", and then the program would automatically run the backtest on the 15 filters and display the result for each filter.
I think this would be a big time saving feature.

Great idea! Don't get me wrong - I love SF and use it every day. But over time I begin to wish for more. For example how about listing performance of a filter along with the names of selected stocks when you run a filter. I.e., I want to see the data on each stock that you see when you click on "historical" all in a table without having to click on each issue. That is because I use this data sometimes for stock pickibg and the present system is cumbersome.

This is not a terribly well formed idea but I'd like to see some "shell" for SF - sort of a meta-SF. That would offer far more ability to manipulate the results from SF. I realize that this might be too compute intensive.
