Backtest start end options
Nov 07, 2023
Subscribers can now set specific start and end dates on all portfolio Relative Strength, Regime, Ratio MA, Moving Average and Channel backtests.
All the backtests still allow you to simply set the start and end year, if so desired. But, it is now also possible to choose a custom start and / or end date, as per the example below:
Note: if the specified start date is not a valid rotation day, the backtest will start on the chosen day and will invest in the picked securities as of the rotation date that immediately preceded the specified start date.
If a monthly rotating Portfolio Relative Strength backtest has a chosen start date is Jan 10, 2023, the backtest will begin on Jan 10, 2023 and will invest in the top x ranked ETF(s) through Dec 31, 2022.
If a quarterly rotating Portfolio Moving Average backtest has a chosen start date is Nov 29, 2019, the backtest will begin on Nov 29, 2019 and will invest in ther ETF(s) that were above their MA through Sep 30, 2019 (and will invest in cash for those that were below).
