Bringing back backtesting. The last version SF had once you learned its nuances it really helped you in your filter development and whether to trust that filter or not. Of course you needed to test your filter against a oversold market, undersold market, and a neutral market environment measuring of course against the S&P 500, and Nasdaq markets.

The main reason why SF stopped its backtesting tool was it cost too much for them to utilize. Which I thought was silly since all they needed to do is charge more on their basic subscription and for their advanced. I think the subscribers that didn’t take the time to learn how to use it effectively probably irritated the SF staff to the point they said ok then, we will just discontinue providing it. Not the solution of course to fixing their problem but instead SF should have been more patient with their customer or found ways to correct the complexity of it.

A good analogy of this would be, you have a car dealership that sells you that product but, you provide no service for it. When you have a service that allows you to create and use a filter you should then have a testing mechanism that also allows you to backtest your creation. SF gives you half a tool.

Hopefully in the near future they will bring back their backtesting tool?

Yes, I always save my many filters in folders I have in AOL “Gold” browser. And in case I lose a filter in SF I always have a back up copy in AOL.

I assume when you say “Report” tool you are talking about the little orange comment window down in our right bottom of our screen? If that will happen, obviously we will have to go through SF’s “Support” site to get help in resolving an issue.

It’s one thing to mention something about politics and how it affects finance, and your investments but, and I say but, if a person begins ranting on and on about politics taking the thread far away from SF’s intent then the owner of the site has every right to do something about it. Hopefully in the future interaction from the owner won’t have to happen. May all our investing endeavors work to our favor.

I see klynn55 removed all his comments from this thread. This thread went from 20 pages to 10. I think he got worried SF might have a chat with him?

I’m not going to get into any consistent trading maybe as long as this fall. As with all crashes, recessions, and crisis, it takes a while before the market truly finds its bottom. So, we will see W’s for awhile. Great environment for Day Traders however. StockFetcher is really not geared in day trading filter creating. Because they do not have minute/hour data transmissions, only end of day results. SF is really for short term / trend / long term trading, filter architecture.

Klynn, the famous Shark Tank person on their show, Mr. Wonderful, where he is done with someone and he states his popular words, “you are .... to me”. Over and out.

Klynn, I knew you couldn’t do what I asked. It’s like disciplining your child then putting him in his room for time out. But, he keeps coming out again and again. Shaking my head.
