This is the 1st in a short series of posts, for the many new members, trial members and those like me who have forgotten some of what they had previously learned regarding historical stock data among the various SF sw tools....

Below is a simple filter finding the current low 3 year low for MSFT, and AAPL

For MSFT that low is $57.28 and was found to have occurred on Oct 6th, 2016.

The value can be seen at the right margin of the 3yrlo line on the chart but the data for that trading day is too far back for SF to show on its standard chart display. (oddity #1)

When I run that filter from the Edit window in SF, I have a box between the results and the edit window that shows the date the filter ran/executed on with a handy downward pointing triangle.

Clicking on that triangle gives me lots of options for running this filter in the past, further back than one day at a time, which is done by the arrows to the left of the data box.

At the very bottom of those options is a "Custom Date OffSet" box with a 0 in it, which can be replaced by any number below 1,000 to run this filter on a specific day in the past.

Typing in 999 for this filter and running it, retrieves a 3yrlo for MSFT of $26.26. verified by the 3yrlo line on the chart but the date of that low, Dec 5th, 2012, can't be seen on the chart display.

Conclusion is that SF has quite a bit of historical data for us, we just have to figure how to find it.

Hey Gene,

Beta is 36 months according to SF

It looks like Standard Deviation period is set by a user by putting a value inside the parentheses, according to SF.

@Cheese and @Xarlor,

Sorry for the delayed response...I'll try and get backtest filters done for each of your requests this weekend.

Between our Cardinals making the next round and my Gators playing LSU this weekend, I should have plenty of tv commercials during which I can be SF filtering...

@byebyemoney,

First, Thanks for making me aware of the "varOffset(, )" command it should prove to be very useful.

Regarding your filter,
a. it seems everything starts 3 days ago for some reason, can you explain why? as the 10 day high within 10 days is kind of within 13 days ago, etc.

b. it appears you are filtering for Ipeak as both >3 and >0, I suspect SF is only using one of them.

c. The variable GapDay and xdiff seem to be the same value, you can probably simplify your filter by using the same variable name in all places those 2 are named.

Thanks,
Ed S.

Based on the few tries I tested SF doesn't process a filter correctly that has both 'Apply to Watchlist' and "Apply to Sector" command phrases.

There are at least a couple of work-arounds:

1. a. Go to Watchlist tab
b. Select the Table box
c. Select your watchlist
d. Select the watchlist actions box
e. choose filters (not Run as filter)
f. scroll down the list of your filters and put a checkmark in the box next to the filter number
g. click save
h. the screen should update and a column labeled by your filter number will show checkmarks for the stocks that meet that filter today and it is sort-able

2.a. Go to My Filters and run your filter as normal
b. Select the Table box
c. Then select the drop down box that looks like a giant asterisk
d, choose Quick Settings
e. Select the drop down in the 'watchlist indicators' box
f. choose "Show as Columns (table only)
g. a set of columns with watchlist names for each your watchlists that have any result stocks of your filter in them, will appear.
h. Click on the desired watchlist label to sort the results list by that watchlist's stocks that meet your filter.

Hope this helps some,
Ed S.

i believe SF's data provider just missed the split on SPI as other stocks that have split in the past seem to have split-adjusted prices; for example GENE had a split in August and its prior prices appear split-adjusted.

@SFMc01,

The filter I posted is only for backtesting his long filter for past results, it doesn't show today's candidates.
