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.

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.
