    1. Even Im wondering.. The history of alerts is already available under alerts. Its the same information shown in backtesting. nothing new..

      1. The backtest history currently show’s the number of stocks filtered per timeframe(day, minute, week..) grouped by its market cap. If you have a scan on which there’s no alert setup, you can view its history too, here.

    2. Hi

      I m just watching scanner since 2-3 month . I found interesting but have some difficulties & suggestion as follow.

      1) back test info is in bar chart form and show sector which is difficult to remember ( symbols , date time ,rate etc ) for comparison purpose. Request if possible , can u provide scan data in tabulation form which can also convert in xl etc ,

      2) can u give additional filters on index like, pass all if nifty grater then EMA xx
      , Pass all if weekly bank nifty ……. , Because 80% cash , future moves as per index..

      3) can we use if …. Then…else,
      Not.,
      4) in future segment , is index futures included in future data?

      5) in chart section , can u make button for 5 Mon ,15 min , 30 min, 1 HR, 1 day , if 5 min period 3 days, 30 min period 20 days , dayly period 6-9 month like wise
      Which can give speedy view during live market..
      If u can provide multiple chart , at least 2 chart of diff time of same symbole, ie one for intraday one for daily .. one in front other in back..
      This gives independent s from other charting tools, speed ..

      Your platform is user-friendly , but I need some more in atleast backtest data ,which may increase profit and reduce loss..
      My no is9374978934 I like to talk to u in matters of possible..

  1. Not able to understand this back testing. It shows number of stocks in the backtesting. But what about the results of backtesting if I chose one stock to see the details of buy and sell.

    1. Click on the individual bars to view the list of stocks filtered on a particular day. We’ll soon have a search bar to search for individual stock’s buy/sell entries

  2. is it applied on the alerts we got or how do you decide whether the strategy is successful or failed ? because we didn’t have any exit conditions , please provide the details on how this works and how we can use it ?

  3. Very nice update! Thanks for adding this unique feature.
    Could you please add export results to excel from the backtest?

  4. Dear Akash,

    I urege you to mention sector of filtered list in scan results, this will very useful to all.

    Suppose I have created a scan to know how much stocks are trading above RSI 70 in Future segement, than it might show me 100 stocks but if the sector is mentioned along with them than I can also know which particular sector is strong.

    I think all are agree with me. Hope to have it soon.

    1. It will show the previous days/ minutes results for your scan without the need for you to modify the scan. Back-testing will not give alerts. It is only to analyze/ view stocks previously triggered by your scans.  If you click on any of the bars on the graph, it will show the list of stocks that triggered as per the scan previously. 

      Back-test data will show data for the lowest candle time frame in your scan. If lowest time frame is 1 minute, it will show results for last 1 minutes. If its on daily candle it will show data for past 6 months. We do plan on adding more features in coming days

  6. The back test here shows efficacy of a scan .. meaning, how the stock which fitted in the scan performed after that day? Am I right, sir?

    1. Yes. that is correct. It will show the previous days/ minutes results for your scan without the need for you to modify the scan. Back-testing will not give alerts. It is only to analyze/ view stocks previously triggered by your scans.  If you click on any of the bars on the graph, it will show the list of stocks that triggered as per the scan previously. 

      Back-test data will show data for the lowest candle time frame in your scan. If lowest time frame is 1 minute, it will show results for last 1 minutes. If its on daily candle it will show data for past 6 months. We show results for the past 150 bars  in our backtest section, these 150 candles could be of any timeframe, depending on the lowest timeframe in your scan, so for 5 minutes for example, you would get 2 days, for 1 minute, half a day and so on. 

  7. Please implement a backtest for 5 minutes timeframes at least of 2 months back. This can be done maybe by selecting a date from a drop down box

  8. Looks like backtesing considers ” Passes All” as “Passes Any” when grouping filters

    Check it out ….

  9. Please make a scanner about RSI positive and negative divergence and plz create a system to talk to our favourite scanner creator…

    Thanks

  10. The history of alerts which is available under alerts is different with information shown in back testing for same scan. Please clarify…

  11. Backtest on a banknifty strategy gives results which are for all indices. Expectation is that backtest of the strategy on a stock or index gives results of that stock or index only.

  12. The history of alerts which is available under alerts is different with information shown in back testing for same scan. Please clarify…

    1. Hope this helps on back-testing:

      1. Thanks for your reply.
        As i mention the result of back test is different with Alert for scan. I know back test not give the alert.
        But when i check my scan alert with back-test result is not match.
        Today in back test result show M&M FIN for Buy . But when i go and check in scan alert it not show..

        1. Example, If you have the alert frequency of 5 minutes on a 1 hour candle scan, the alert results will update every 5 minutes and so will the backtest results(if you open the site and view the graph every 5 minutes), the difference is that the alert keeps a history of all your stocks triggered every 5 minutes i.e at 9:20am, 9:25am and so on via the alert history page,, whereas the backtest graph doesn’t keep any history as such, it will show the results only as of the candle completion time i.e 10:15am. so its not necessary that the backtest will show all the stocks that were triggered every 5 minutes as your alert show’s.

          Alerts is a premium feature that would allow you to do this, it keeps a track of all your stocks that met the condition every 5 minutes so that you don’t need to keep a track of them manually in the scanner page or the backtesting graph. The backtest is a dynamic graph that would update/change as your 1 hour candle is changing.

          Hope this clears the confusion that you are facing.

  13. Dear sir,

    I think in Charting screener there no data available of Delivery Holding of Previous trading day as available in NSE site, please update this option of Delivery Holding data so that BTST/Intraday Traders can take benefit to make strategy on those stock having good Holding.

  14. Wrong system. i used weekly scanner to generate alerts. however, live alerts generated by scanner is not included in backtesting. Only those alerts are included in the system where condition is met in order to earn more subscription revenue.

    1. Please note that backtest is a free feature, we have not yet added this a premium member feature so there’s no revenue or earning from the same rather backtesting excessive load to compute the results.

      Here’s the response to your query:

  15. It is not back testing of scanner, it is absolutely wrong information given for a scanner. It is not showing complete results, and also Stocks that don’t give desired result are removed very smartly from the back-tested results..

    1. Sorry, please note the backtest graph show’s results based on completed candles. If you viewing larger timeframes like weekly or monthly the results of the backtest will change for the latest candle, as the candle is still being built while the week or month is open.

      Further, we don’t remove or manually add any stocks, the stocks are displayed as per the indicators used in your scanner which is not within our control

  16. I had posted a comment on mis-information given by your back testing graph..that stocks which are not giving desired results are deleted, why you removed the same?

    1. We did reply above. Below is the reply we posted:

  20. Currently backtesting result shows time for a particular stock meeting criteria as 00:00:00 GMT as shown below:

    Fri Jun 21 2019 00:00:00 GMT+0530 (India Standard Time)

    Is there any way to know exactly at what time during the day screener filtered the stock? I know that if we create alert we get email/sms exactly at the time stocks are filtered by the screener for today and going ahead.

    I am more interested in at what time individual stocks were filtered by the screener during past 7 months of backtesting results as shown by the backtest history tab.

    1. I notice that you are viewing the results on a daily candle scan, the time for this is irrelevant in the backtest section, as this is always be the start of the day’s time (i.e 00 hours). If you’d want to view the actual time when the stocks are being filtered, you can create a alert on your scan that runs every 5 minutes or so, and validate the results in the alert history

  21. Hello,

    If i use a 5 min candle stick then the back testing is available only for 3 days which. Nothing can be done with 3 days of back testing data. Please understand. You have been saying that it will be done for a long time. But nothhing is done .

    1. We do plan on adding more features to it soon.
