WTF!!!! Guess I will have to find a new site to do my research. I'm thinking StrataSearch or something really good like TC2000 by Worden. I'm still hoping that SF changes their minds. If they don't then, I'm outta here. Starting over and rewriting my best filters AND BACK TESTS on another site.

All you "Candle Stickers" out there, I hope can find this a useful part, of some magical filter.

take out the line near bottom,

close > MA(50)

Backtesting Support · realistic results or time travel?

In Backtesting, Advanced Options, Entry Price and Exit Price,
Both default to the opening price, if your customized price does not fall into the following days range, the opening price is used. BEWARE, In the real world this requires a time machine, going back in time to the open to make your trade. You can't look ahead in time either in the real world. If you could, you could simple put in:

SET{Five%, close * 0.95}
Five%

and make 5% on day one with every trade!

or use:

Entry Prce: LOW
Exit Price: HIGH

and make a whole lot of dough with almost any filter!!

So wouldn't it be better to have the Stock Fetcher defaults set to the close?? At least you could be following the time line most of the time!!!!!
