You can develop a filter of stuff about to match your filter, then monitor the ones that are taking off in the middle of the day.

Sometimes the position data on watchlists won't reset for the current or last day, but its stuck on the previous day. Is there any way to reset it? Even if I create a new watchlist, its still stuck on the old data.

I could use the following fields on the "Trades" for a Backtest scenario:

mainly for open trades (and even closed trades)
- Price at last close
- Performance from trigger date

Backtesting Support · What about delisted stocks in backtesting?

It would be better (if it was possible) to treat a position on a stock like AX to be closed, instead of acting like it never existed in the first place. Maybe the source of trading data just has limitations. This sounds logical to us, but the data must have so many spaghetti pointer references.

Well that confirms it. It doesn't show up in any backtesting results or filters (includes days offset for a few days ago), like this filter:

Show stocks where close crossed above 65 within the last 20 days

So it seems that all the stocks that went delisted (bought out, ceased to exist, etc.) will NOT show up in backtesting results, which leads one to believe that they are more useful for short term trading data. I would think they should put a note saying that somewhere.

Let's say I'm doing a backtest for 1/2/2005 - 3/1/2006.

A stock matched my filter on 2/1/2005.
On 3/1/2005 it is delisted for whatever reason (no longer public, bought out, ceased to exist, etc.).

That was an open position. What happens?

Or will it never appear as a filter pick, because it didn't exist at the end of the backtesting period? I get the impression that the companies that ceased to exist as public companies don't show up at all, and inflate the results too.

Can someone confirm whether or not these companies are in the data? Do we have a few examples that could confirm?

Backtesting Support · entry price / days held

Actually all I need is the "entry" price that the position was opened at, and the number of days that have elapsed since then. I think that is all I need.

I second that.

Are there backtesting key words for the exit filter such as:
entry point
draw down

Stockfetcher has the ERSI function. Look it up under RSI. This does something like the EMA of the RSI.
