Inside Settings[My Filters],
it's possible, for example, to add the following lines:
draw lower bollinger band(20)
and draw ema(13)
and draw ema(20)
and draw ema(50)

and SF1.0 will display these technos, by default, on all graphics.

What about the same bahaviour for SF2 ?

As we can see in the SF 1.0 graphics,
it could be more than useful to display the stock value
when you move the mouse. Let's say in the upper-right side
of the graphic.

The increase in monthly fees from $8.95 to $16.95 is too high
considering the additonal/improved features.

A price between $12-$13 should be considered as more adequate and acceptable !

Corsino, you said :
"the win/loss ratio is better than the ROI in judging a filter".

I agree with that BUT another very important factor to fully validate
your win/loss ratio is the number of stocks covered by your backtest !

It's stupid to announce that Mister X has a win/loss ratio of 80%
or a ROI of 2000% if only few stocks (< 30) have been covered !!!!!

I think a good backtest should, at least covers more than 50 stocks
for a 1 year timeframe.

Thanks again for your investigations !

What do you mean by :
'You are over the "set" depth limit' ?

Because in numerous filters, TheRumpledOne used a ton of "SET" statements !

If I understand correctly, you mean that there are too many SET
chaining operations !

i.e :
SET {A, B + C} Level 1
SET {D, A * Z} Level 2
SET {M, D * N} Level 3
SET {V, E * F} Level 1
SET {X, M * V} Level 4
and so on....

If my problem involves the chaining capacity limitation,
SF has to update it and to mention somewhere the real SET capacity !

As TheRumpledOne said,
the best approach should be to be able to create function libraries.

SF is a great tool, but it's not perfect.
And more and more, you want to elaborate complex and useful filters,
and you are blocked by these kind of limitations.

Yepher, in a earlier post, you mentioned a specific tool to check
the syntax of a filter. Is it possible to provide us this tool ???

Indeed, another big issue is the SF syntax checker with its own limitations....

I think it's a good time that SF organizes a major Survey about what members
want, rank all feature requests covering all SF aspects (Filter, Gfx, Backtest)
before spending precious time creating not so useful additional tools (aka Public Filters).....

What about modulo and round functions ????

shelupinin, it's easy !

set{a, 5}
set{a2, a / 100}
set{Lo5, a - a2}
set{Hi5, a + a2}

set{b, 10}
set{b2, b/100}
set{Lo10, b - b2}
set{Hi10, b + b2}

set{C1a,count(close above Lo5,1)}
set{C1b,count(close below Hi5,1)}
set{C2a,count(close above Lo10,1)}
set{C2b,count(close below Hi10,1)}

set {C1, C1a * C1b}
set {C2, C2a * C2b}
set {C1_or_C2, C1 + C2}

C1_or_C2 is above 0.99
and add column C1
and add column C2

How have you found a 83% win by backtesting your filter ?
Which parameters have you used ?

Thanks for your investigations !

Upto now, there is no solution, but just an intuition.

I don't think it's a memory problem.

In fact, several "set" use values from previous dates for calculations.
The first part of the ADA calculation works fine (wacc).
But If you mention a value 2 days ago, there is a problem.

There is a perfect logical reason of that and only SF guys
should resolve this strange bevaviour...

Another interesting question :
That works fine,
set {closeM1,close 1 day ago}
set {closeM2,close 2 day ago}
set {lowM1,low 1 day ago}
set {highM1,high 1 day ago}
set {TLC1,count(closeM1 is above low,1)}
set {TrueLow1,TLC1 * low}
set {TLC2,1 - TLC1}
set {TrueLow2,TLC2 * closeM1}
set {TL,TrueLow1 + TrueLow2}
set {THC1,count(closeM1 is below high,1)}
set {TrueHigh1,THC1 * high}
set {THC2,1 - THC1}
set {TrueHigh2,THC2 * closeM1}
set {TH,TrueHigh1 + TrueHigh2}
set {clotUp,count(close is above closeM1,1)}
set {clotDn,count(close is below closeM1,1)}
set {TLD, close - TL}
set {waccDN,clotUp * TLD}
set {THD, close - TH}
set {waccUP,clotDn * THD}
set {wacc,waccDN + waccUP}
show stocks where close is above 300
and draw wacc

Why if you add these expressions "set {waccM1, wacc 1 day ago}"
and "and draw waccM1", SF gives 0 matches ????

A full mistery !
