We are pleased to announce that today we are releasing two capabilities to view historical data on the site.Â First is historical trade data behind the screen results.Â This was previewed in a post a couple of weeks ago titled More on a Rolling Starts Backtest.
Additionally, we are releasing the capability to view any Portfolio or Screen at a date in the past.Â Anywhere you see a calendar like the one to the right, just click it and select a date.Â This image is from a portfolio, but the calendar is also on all screen picks pages just above the data table.Â Soon it will be making its way onto other data tables throughout the site.Â So, if you’ve ever wondered what a screen looked like just before the latest correction, now you can find out.Â We are kicking this feature off with a year’s worth of historical data, but that, too, will be supplemented in the near future.
As was mentioned above, we are also making trade data available to supplement backtest results.Â A new button will now appear near the bottom of the backtest statistics box titled View Results By Cycle.Â This button will lead to the first of two new pages, this one showing results for each cycle.Â On that page you can see how the backtest results vary with start date.Â Some screens are fairly consistent, and some appear almost random.Â Click the cycle number in the table header, and you will go to that cycle’s page which includes a performance chart, some relative statistics, and period by period trade data.Â These features were mostly covered in the More on a Rolling Starts Backtest post, so you can see it there, or just check out your favorite backtest. Â Many of you have asked for this data for a while, and we are glad to be able to make it available.
These two new features are currently available for anyone who is registered on the site and logged in.Â They are part of a package of features that will be available by a small subscription fee starting in a few weeks.Â Since these features are ready and have been in heavy demand, we wanted to let our current users have access while the remainder of the package is assembled.Â Enjoy!
