Hi Folks,
In the SF Backtester under the Selection Method Criteria, I want to specify select by "performance" descending. I've seen the "performance" column in the filter's match results, but I am unsure if "performance" is a permissible variable to use. I've used variations of select by volume, rsi(2), and fast stochastic fast %k(14) descending (or ascending). But I'm just confused about 1) using the "performance" term 2) would it be better to make a user-defined variable within the fiter and then refer to that user-defined variable in the Selection Method statement to SF's backtester. I hope my description is clear enough.

I saw one forum reference that seemed to address something similar, but there was not response back regarding their solution.

Thanks for any guidance you could share with me.
Ed

Pardon me Folks - it was a really long day and I made a mistake in my post above...... I meant to say "%Chg" instead of "Performance". Sorry for the slip up, Ed
