You're right. I'm going to go back and delete every indicator of yours that I copied. Who needs 'em! That should free up about 5 MB of hard drive space. :)

General Discussion · How to include dividend % column?

Speaking of dividends, anyone have the guts to buy NEW and/or NFI at these prices? If these companies come out of this sub-prime debacle in good shape, yields are pretty attractive here. I've owned them both in the past, but it's been awhile.

The performance charts in the backtester are not working. I first noticed this yesterday.

This isn't exactly what you are looking for, but I don't know if I've ever seen so many greens without a red. It's just nice to look at.

(sorry, I missed two reds on the 2nd page. 71 green vs. 2 red)

You need to give more description to your sell rules. For example, what about MA(50)? You need to tell it what is supposed to happen with MA(50), like "price crossed below ma(50). And for RSI(14) crosses 70, you need to specify crosses above or below 70.

General Discussion · Yet another reason why stop losses are a fools game!
msg #50137

"I read a post on this website where a trader has a trading system with no stop loss component and feels comfortable with that by keeping the position sizes very small for each trade. The system will wait for losers to turn into winners. My contention is mathematical certainty guarantees this persons trading system will eventually have to be holding all losing positions."

That's me. I still don't use stops with that system, and it is still working. Your explanation that I hold all losing positions until they become winners is not entirely true. Even stocks in a downtrend have up days. When you get stopped out, you are often getting out at a short-term bottom. My system gets out at a short-term peak. Many times they are still losers, but more often than not, I get out at a better price than if I would have been stopped out.

Look at your sell criteria. It sounds like your buy never got sold.
