I have had the same issue. There are some serious bugs with the way SF stores filters as ordered numbers. Deleting or re-ordering will wreak havoc with backtests. I alerted SF to this about a year ago.

I have the same question the OP had. How can I check for average dollar volume in a filter? The mentioned solutions simply multiply avg. volume (in shares/day) by the most recent close price. This is only accurate if the stock price has not moved much during the period. I.e., for trending stocks, this number will not be very accurate at all. For now, I use average volume (30)*MA(30), but that is still a pretty rough estimate. StockFetcher should add Average Dollar Volume(days) as a variable. It's one of the most fundamental criteria to look at when evaluating whether a stock is worth trading.

All of my ~35 filters are returning "NaN" -- even a new one I just created as a test.

When backtesting, if you specify a certain market cap or level of institutional ownership, will the backtest use the value of those variables at the point in time of the test (say, January 2005) or will it use today's values?

Is it possible to create a backtest exit like the following:

If exit test is satisfied on today's close, exit the position at next open, only if next open price >= today's close. So if a stock closed at $8.00 and triggered my exit, the backtest would exit the position if the next day's open was $8.00 or higher. If not, position would be kept.

I have asked for this multiple times. It makes no sense to limit paying subscribers. The max time period should be at least five years.

Profitspi is very similar, though the interface is a bit lacking in my opinion. Also,
