Movers Backtest

Rank stocks not by their position on a screen's list, but on how far up the list since they've moved since the last period. This adds a level of derivative to the rankings.

General instructions

Run the tester over the specified range of years. Available data runs from 2003 through 2018 for most screens. You may start at any month of the year, but other than January can only run through 2017/2018.

Stocks are picked from the screens every holding period (between 1 and 120 months) and held for that period.

Instead of selecting from the available screens, you may choose to enter codes from any of the backtesters to create hybrid tests. Simply copy the link listed at the top of a run and paste into the form. Also see the backtester code guide.

If you want to simulate actual trading, you can enter more parameters in the trading simulator.

You may give your backtest a name for convenience. If you use this backtest code in other testers, its name will be shown instead of a full description.

Movers Backtest instructions

Select the screen to use, and the ranks within that screen.

Only movement within those ranks will be considered. Any stock that had a lower rank in the last period will be considered to have been at just past the last rank selected.

After the stocks are ordered, the top limit stocks will be chosen.
