The increase in monthly fees from $8.95 to $16.95 is too high
considering the additonal/improved features.

A price between $12-$13 should be considered as more adequate and acceptable !

Hi !

It's a request feature to bring to number of possible backtests to 30.
15 is really a limiting factor to compare several filters !

Corsino, you said :
"the win/loss ratio is better than the ROI in judging a filter".

I agree with that BUT another very important factor to fully validate
your win/loss ratio is the number of stocks covered by your backtest !

It's stupid to announce that Mister X has a win/loss ratio of 80%
or a ROI of 2000% if only few stocks (< 30) have been covered !!!!!

I think a good backtest should, at least covers more than 50 stocks
for a 1 year timeframe.

As we can see in the SF 1.0 graphics,
it could be more than useful to display the stock value
when you move the mouse. Let's say in the upper-right side
of the graphic.

Inside Settings[My Filters],
it's possible, for example, to add the following lines:
draw lower bollinger band(20)
and draw ema(13)
and draw ema(20)
and draw ema(50)

and SF1.0 will display these technos, by default, on all graphics.

What about the same bahaviour for SF2 ?

Backtesting Support · BUG : Maximum days to hold
msg #36145

For example,
If I want hold a stock for 5 days,
I don't speak about 5 calendar days,
BUT, of course, 5 trading days !!!

If a stock is bought on Friday and I want to keep it for 5 trading days,
if the market is closed on Monday,
I don't want to release it on the next Tuesday !!!!
I want to keep it for 5 tradings days and release it on the next Friday !

Can you correct this bevahiour !?
