  1. Add Backtesting to the Screener

    What would be really useful is the ability to run the filter on a specific dataset e.g. Finals December 2005. All that is required is the set of stocks a filter might have produced for the dataset, together with a price on the final day of the month. The user could then manually work out what to do with all the changes in ownership and get an idea of performance. I accept that running on specific dataset limits the shares that would be thrown out but I can't think of an 'easy' way to do it. What do you think?

        We do plan to do more on the RNS analysis side of things, but it’s likely to be next year.

      • Add a table of Stock 'Breakout' moves

        All websites have a new highs screen, but nobody has a breakout table. This would show the number of days that a stock has been below the previous high when the new high is hit - you can't really follow "How to make Money in Stocks" without it. I have to use a charting package to find the breakouts which really make CANSLIM work. The screen would also have to show the depth of the trough (i.e. if the stock topped at 100 and went to 75 before going back up that would be a 25% drop, which is important…

        • Enable users to add Elliott Wave analysis to charts

          Would it be possible to apply Elliott Wave analysis to the up to date share information.
          I follow Elliott Wave theory and find it both interesting & more importantly - PROFITABLE !

          • Add detailed broker estimates data - i.e. line item forecasts

            Similarly to hemscott and other providers.

              This is a very hard feature to implement. While there are some UK brokers that publish this data and are willing to share it, the major international brokers are not. Every single user of this data would have to sign an individual contract with each broker (Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley etc) in order to prove they were a client.

              This is clearly impossible, so we currently support consensus estimates. Our plan is to display the full range of min, max, standard deviation and breadth of estimates, target prices and history in the Smart Money portal. This is much more useful.

            • Run screens against individual portfolios rather than the whole stockmarket/sector

              You can then have a screen with sell criteria which you can run against your portfolio to decide when to sell. For example, Kirkpatrick suggests selling stocks when their 3 month RS < 52. or when P/S <= 7 or >= 67.
              Alternatively, one might have bought shares with ValueRank and QualityRank > 90 but want to sell when the ValueRank is < 60 for example.
              At the moment one has to create a screen for ValueRank against the whole market and the result is limited to 200 shares.

                We are planning on building on an entire portfolio management module to the website that incorporates sell rules/notifications according to personalised and standardised criteria. We’ll also be launching a Top Down market timing module that may help in this regard too. We’ll keep you informed as to how this develops.

              • Show the actual Guru Screen Holdings not just Qualifying stocks

                It would be useful to see for each Guru screener what the actual portfolio of stocks for the quarter actually was / is, ie. perhaps if you clicked on the screener performance graph it would bring up what the portfolio consisted of.

                    Hi there – just responding to this old request. We do provide the price histories of most listed bonds in the UK but we can’t support OTC bonds. If there are any that are missing please do let me know ?

                    I’m hopeful we’ll add more bond detail in future.

                    Best,

                  • List AIM stocks qualifying for business taper relief

                    Certain AIM listed stock qualify for business taper relief from the HMRC meaning investors pay no CG and the assets are IHT except.

                    http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/manuals/cgmanual/cg17953.htm

                    The investors champion provide a list of such shares - however I believe it maybe out of date.

                    Can you provide such a filter?

                    • Enable users to visualise when a company enters (leaves) a screen

                      Add the option of showing share price charts when a share enters/leaves a filter. This would be really useful in spotting the filters that are really performing. Also some filters may be very good at selecting shares when they are cheap and then deselecting then when they become more expensive (ie. when the price goes up). With these filters they are going to look as though they perform badly - but in fact they are great! If you could see the when the share was in each filter you could see... share x entered buffet filter in Jan left in…

                      • Include top-down market and sector traffic lights

                        Reading the usual 3 of 4 stocks perform according to the overall market index I wonder whether we can have a big picture summary. For example is the exchange and sector currently under distribution or accumulation. By my language you can see that I am thinking in the way of ibd's big picture.

                          Hi, I’m a big fan of IBD and some of their tools. We have every intention of providing top down sector and market panels. We have some fantastic ideas in this area, but are just lacking resources and time to get this implemented. I anticipate we may start on this in 2014 in some way. Thanks for the feedback!

                              I would like to be able to build my own valuation method, based upon data within the Stock Report screen, and to then be able to include this within a Screening Strategy, so that I can easily identify shares that are undervalued according to my own criteria. This would be a massive time saver and enhancement to the share selection process.

                                        • Enable users to visualise 'Force Index' (Technical Indicator)

                                          The force index is calculated by subtracting yesterday's close from today's close and multiplying the result by today's volume. If closing prices are higher today than yesterday, the force is positive. If closing prices are lower than yesterday's, the force is negative.
