Why no equity summary for backtest of short strategies? Since you have it for longs, it would seem the programming would be simple to adapt it for shorts.

AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO CARES THAT THERE'S NO EQUITY SUMMARY FOR BACKTESTING SHORT STRATEGIES?
DO YOU ALL JUST TRADE FROM THE LONG SIDE??????

Thanks for the post, Kevin. You're right, I need to contact SF, but I sent an email to them a month ago about another question and never got an answer. I thought this approach might get some result.

I'm willing to test it. Did a lot of work on your slim shorty, but I kept running into problems such as "price > 5", still included penny stocks. Wouldn't generate any trades using only S&P 500 stocks -- too many obscure stocks that would be tough to short. When I coded it to Stratasearch, it lost money no matter what variations I made. Very strange.How do I get you my email address without posting it everyone using SF?

Ah well. Guess I still can't predict the future.

Shill:
Sorry, but I don't see a way to code it. And, without code, I can't backtest. With all due respect, a series of observations gives too few data points to be meaningful. Also, it would be good to have a logical premise underlying any filter.
