Subject : creating a scan as of a date in the past Posted : 8/19/2017 8:00 AM Post #42364
I'm trying to figure out how to use omnitrader/omniscan to use a scan but also test it as if it were running from a date in the past. The problem I have is that the "days in the past" subscript part of the formula only works from the current market day and I cannot seem to figure out how to run that same formula (and whole scan) as if it were running at a date in the past without having to alter all of the "days in the past" subscripts accordingly. I'd ultimately like to test any of my scans in different time periods to see how they would have performed in the past. Also, any of the metrics shown in the focus list also only reflect the current market date once they are filtered by the scan. It's like I just want to have Omnitrader/Omniscan think it is running only from a date in the past. Any ideas how to accomplish this? thanks!
