Oh . . . maybe that's the answer . . . it WAS here but that feature has been disabled?

I remember writing pretty specific trading rules, including things like stop losses, etc. I believe it was one equity at a time.

Sorry, I used to post here regularly, but it's been a while. I moved away from exploring various ideas into trading a single ETF (profitably, I might add), mostly based on volatility estimates.

I have an idea I'd like to backtest, and although I do recall building simulations on some platform in the past, I can't recall what that platform was! Does stockfetcher offer this? If not, is there a well-known platform that has existed for years which allows one to explore end-of-day trading of one or more equities based on a certain set of rules? I know I used to do this but for the life of me I can't remember which site it was. Thanks for any help.

TRO, this is a very long thread with tons of filters. I am curious about your "MTC Checker" concept to identify trading possibilities besides AAPL. It seems that you define your triggers as fractions of a dollar, regardless of share price. Did that change as the filter evolved? For instance, this is one example from fairly early in the thread which identifies 3 stocks with a fair spread on underlying stock price (TSLA, GOOGL, TQQQ which range from ~ $100 to $550):


set{ hiop, high - open }
set{ up10, count( hiop > 0.09, 100 ) }
set{ up50, count( hiop > 0.49, 100 ) }
set{ pct1, up50 / up10 }
set{winpct, 100 * pct1 }

add column up10
add column up50
add column winpct

up50 above 79

average volume(90) above 1000000

market is nasdaq

sort column 7 descending

Not to discourage your efforts, but that's a 9% annualized yield. You can hit 12% with just a simple moving average crossover technique. (Of course, in all situations when you compare to buy and hold you need to account for taxes and fees.)

Kevin, you mentioned this in your original post, and being SF-stupid, I'm not sure exactly what you're saying. Is this a separate filter limited to the stocks one is holding in Pangolin Z?

"For determining the new RSI(2)-based profit target each night you simply set up a watchlist of the stocks you are holding and add a column with "add column reversersi(2,90) {profit target}". This will automatically update the dynamic exit for the next day. "

That's it! Thank you so much. I'm not using those triggers, but I was able to rewrite it for my indicators. I'll share once I confirm it's working exactly as planned.

duke, it's not that simple. Here are the 3 possible results I would like to filter for in my example:

Yesterday: close below EMA(5) and SMA(5)
Today: close above EMA(5) and SMA(5)

Yesterday: close below EMA(5) but above SMA(5)
Today: close above EMA(5) and SMA(5)

Yesterday: close above EMA(5) but below SMA(5)
Today: close above EMA(5) and SMA(5)

See? In all 3 cases, there was a state change between yesterday and today based on BOTH indicators. I am not interested in finding stocks that have (for instance) closed above EMA(5) and SMA(5) for the last week, or even the last 2 days. I want at least one of the indicators to have swung positive today, and both to be true today.

Now we're getting somewhere. Thank you very much!

I'm not seeing it. This would include filter results where both were true for the last 5 weeks. I'm trying to only get results for a logical "AND" that just occured today. (In other words, EMA could have been true for weeks, but SMA just turned today, or vice versa. Or both just turned today.)
