The pe ratio is causing the problem. I have learned not to trust the pe ratios that Stockfetcher uses. They are often very old or innaccurate.

Backtesting Support · Setting "share" quantities for buying

You set the average position size by changing the "maximum open positions" on the Advanced page. This setting defaults to 250, so it will assume each position size is $100,000 / 250 = $400. So if you are only buying $400 worth of shares, many times this will be a very small number of shares. If you change this setting from 250 to 25, then the average position size will be $100,000 / 25 = $4,000.

Then, if you want at least 100 shares, then the stock price must be less than $40. You add this line to your filter.

Well, yes, stockfetcher has a triangle patterm, but it's not 100% relaiable, so you have to pick through the results. For example:

Fetcher[pattern is ascending triangle(60)
and high is above upper ascending triangle(60)

That's not my website, but those are my trades. It has been working very well. When I first learned about RSI(2) I was a non-believer. Obviously, not anymore!

Lighten up. I think he was trying to teach him how to fish, rather than just giving him a fish.
