@ben,

A few of things I found:

a. Your set command has regular parentheses instead of the { } ones that the set command requires.

Once I made that change your filter syntax check was green for all lines.

b. However you chose the Nasdaq 100 market so your filter will never return any stocks as nothing in the Nasdaq 100 has a price lower than $2.

c. When I run your filter with only the first line SF returns 97 symbols yet currently the Nasdaq 100 consists of 104 symbols.

It actually gets worse as several of the symbols that SF shows for the Nasdaq 100 were removed effective Dec 18th so SF is actually missing more than 7 of the 104 symbols currently in the Nasdaq 100.

(note that Nasdaq 100 contains 100 companies but some of them have more than one stock such as Alphabet/Google which is why it contains 104 symbols.)

Hope this helps,
Ed S.

My Signals for 1/12 are 4 new Buys for filters #23,35,38,40. and still holding on 7 prior signals.

Thanks to everyone who answered by XIV Yahoo data check question.

I have a follow-up question in my search to get at the bottom of the differences:

For those of you who are updating signal data and have had different signals than I in some cases, please look at your SS Import Prices dialog box found under the File menu, and let me know which of these 3 circles you have selected under the Options section:

a. Import Prices and Symbols
b. Import Prices and Symbols -Clear Previous Prices
c. Import Prices and Symbols -Clear Previous Prices, Symbols and Sectors

I am currently using a. which does not replace any prior data for XIV.

Thanks,
Ed S.

@Mactheriverrat,

Regarding my question,
c. Maybe they don't have any more confidence in SF data being change free, has anyone ever checked to your knowledge?

I just verified that the SF volume data for XIV does in fact change in a manner very similar to how the Yahoo XIV volume data changes.

I used the volume off of your chart graphic for XIV of 1/11/2018, where its volume was shown as 2,993,000 and today in SF the volume data for XIV on 1/11, is 3,026,400, which coincidentally matches the current Yahoo XIV volume for 1/11.

When I loaded the Yahoo XIV volume for 1/11 into SS to run the nightly signals, Yahoo was reporting 2,983,800.

@graftonian,

I couldn't find any SS comparable function to SFs indposition(); but it looks like it would be relatively easy to build an SS custom formula for it if you have not already done so.

@Mactheriverrat,

Regarding your initial post, I suspect the following considerations may play a part in why there hasn't been a rush to use different SF based filters on XIV:

a. K of G's 30 filter XIV SS based system doesn't appear to be discontinued as several SF users are following the daily signals based on the occasional post trafic.

b. Some are probably waiting to see if Graftonian and/or others are able to convert a majority of the 30 SS filters to SF.

c. Maybe they don't have any more confidence in SF data being change free, has anyone ever checked to your knowledge?

d. K of G's 30 filter XIV SS based system was backtested over many years and specific trade data is available for every trade in a given backtest, Most SF users probably can't backtest a new XIV filter system over such a long period of time with confidence.

e. So far, even with some different individual signals, it appears to working mostly as the backtest results indicated.

Thanks,
Ed S.

@davesaint86

I went to Portfolio Vizualizer and I could not set a start date of 11/15/07 using the monthly mode and the Backtest Portfolio tool.

Which tool did you use to be able to set a specific calendar starting date?

Thanks,
Ed S.

@tennisplayer2,

Thanks for the info, my values for last night (as of this morning Yahoo site) are 145.45 146.44 144.57 145.00 2,983,800

I've found that Yahoo volume numbers for XIV change frequently for a few days after they are first posted and that any Yahoo volume number that doesn't end in 00 will definitely change later.

these are the volumes I have loaded into SS XIV over the past 10 days followed by today's corresponding Yahoo volume value for that same day.

2983800 , 2983800
4996900 , 5049900
3677200 , 3722900
2596800 , 2596800
3493800 , 3522600
3111100 , 3147100
3488300 , 3488300
4151600 , 4202700
4477508 , 4835100
2530600 , 2562300

Most have changed since I originally stored them in SS and I've been leaving the original volume values I loaded intact as I've generated signals with them and run backtests with them as they are.

Since there are a lot of volume based indicators in this system's 30 filters and some are cum based I suspect some of my signal differences could be due to those volume differences.

Thanks,
Ed S.

As Lapre506 posted

the Quiz #2 Answer to Question 2. is False

However, it is for an entirely different reason.

I like him him thought that the SF charts would only go back 2 years, primarily because they provide us a choice of either 3m,6m, 1yr, and 2yr in the top right corner of the chart we get when we click on a stock in a filter result. Then, 1 day I was trying to resize the bottom of the chart so I could see the lower indicator section better and I dragged the chart to the right and a third year of data was revealed.

Note: if you select the 2 year option and click and drag the chart to the right sometimes it will only go back as far as Apr 2015, but if you switch to the 3m choice and drag some more it will go back to Jan 26, 2015, revealing almost 3 years of chart and indicator values which is why I chose 3 years for the question text.

My reason for the #2 answer being false, is that there is a way in SF to see past chart data as far back the year 2000 in 1 year chart segments.

The way to get these older charts is to:
1. run any filter that returns some results

2. if your results are in table format move your mouse over to the far right and choose the setting icon and choose Historical from the drop down menu
If your results are in chart format choose Historical from the top of the little on screen chart

3. the screen that appears is the SF Stock Chart Analysis screen which shows various info regarding your filter hits during the chart span of time shown on the screen.
Since we want to go way back in time go to the top of the screen and replace the stock symbol with MSFT and click the Analyze box.

4. After the current year MSFT chart shows up on the screen go down to the "Ending Date" box and replace the date with 1/11/2001 and click the Change box.

5. After a few second delay the older 1 year chart of MSFT with an end date of 1/11/2001 will appear, of course you can choose any end date you prefer.

Note: I checked a couple of stocks that had long histories and the older charts seem very accurate back to 2001, but futher back than that I found some glitches like the calcualtions for split adjustements might have had an error in them.

I'd like to figure out why I get some different XIV nightly signals from most of the rest of you.

Far down below I've pasted all of the days of Yahoo data for XIV since K of G posted this system for us, please compare to your XIV data in StrataSearch and let me know if you spot significant differences.

Thanks,
Ed S.

My 4 Sell signals for 9/10 match Graftonian's and like his if I click on the Portfolio Only check box at the top of the XIV Nightly Signals listing #40 drops off the list.

That leaves me with the other 3 Sells signals and 7 Holds probably because K of G had set this up originally as a 10 unit portfolio in SS.
