Nibor, I could hardly ask you to spend your time trying, but this is the filter I had in mind. It's just a very slightly modified version of the "catalyst" filter.
Take for example TCON, which I think last appears on Sep 8. However, if you run the filter back in time from there, you will see TCON appear a number of times, and it has a significant runup in the prior weeks from its first appearance within the last three months. So, it would be useful to see, when running a filter on the latest date, if and how many times a symbol has appeared over the last X period. This is useful for a variety of reasons -- like knowing if a symbol is a "newcomer" or if a symbol is on a long stretch of appearances. It could be useful to get a full percent-change in price stat for the symbol, too, over the period. I have the enhanced/full SF subscription.

Anway, I don't expect you to try to work this out at all, but I did want to reply to share more of what I was thinking. Getting improved stats around a symbol in general would increase the power of SF a lot.

I would also add that SF could improve the ability to rank symbols and to track changes in rank -- like used in rotation models. But that's another thread for another time.

/*This is the original Xalor filter
The catalyst filter.*/

set{var7,count(atr(30) 3 days ago < .2,1)}
set{var8,count(reached a new high 3-month high,1)}

buy 1 day ago equals 0

graftonian or others, how would you calculate the "percent change since X date" and output ot a column for any of these filters?

I'd love to have the ability to return a list of all tickers that a filter generates _over a date range_. Rather than having to use the date-forward and date-back to review each day's results, I would like to run a filter using a start date and end date and then download or get onscreen a list of all the tickers and dates in chronological order.

Bonus for a feature that would count the number of times a ticker appeared over the date range, and also marks the date of its first and most recent appearances.

...unless there's a way to do this / seems like there is?

Define "best". ;)

Improved backtesting, no question. Backtesting has its own problems, but if your assumption is that filters are fitted then you can deal with those problems. I just want more stats.

I still don't know what you're saying. Why don't you be a real half-man and not a quizzical weakling halfwit Flat-Earther? (lol.) Use more direct terms. I showed your post to folks in the office and they think you're
implying something antisemitic in your comments. I tried telling them that you're just a real smart guy with iffy writing skills and that couldn't possibly be it. So who's right, lil shizl?

"All the unethical testing the Js do with the people such as enduring unexplained market dips will likely just bring the market higher."

What are "the Js"?

"I'd suggest the OP go to the forum archives and STUDY.
Then, look at the poster names from 2000 to 2008.
Who among them is still here?"

An example of selection bias and survivor bias. Just because someone is "still here" has nothing to do with the reason for other people "not being here" and neither has any relationship to any trading success. Obviously, a person would leave if they "found something better", not solely because they blew up. And still being here has nothing to do with success, either, since it could merely mean that they haven't found anything better.

For me, I'm still here but use SF in a completely different way then when I started. I used to think I would build signals here. lol. But today, I use SF to simply organize information about breadth or to get a relatively accurate stats snapshot of various baskets and what they're doing. SF is pretty good for that. But the systems I trade are built elsewhere, and there's a reason for that.

"I’m saying I’d like to see more systems implemented with a game plan. Preferably leveraged ETFs, with in and out parameters."

1. Who cares what impresses you?
2. Who cares what you want?
3. Why don't _YOU_ create a system that ticks your boxes and share it?

If you want to put in orders, I'm sure there's a McD's close to you.

" I can trade with 1 ma line and probably do better than 90% of all systems"

4. Then go do it, obviously.
