I have signed up for this service as it does have some suitability for testing some basic strategies for beginners like myself. However there are lots of Error messages popping up with custom strategies.

@Kim I signed up to this service but do not find it useful and wish to unsubscribe. Unfortunately, while you can sign up easily there does not seem to be any way you can cancel the subscription through the site and no contact details anywhere. Do you know how to unsubscribe? Alternatively, do you have an email address I can contact?

I'm sure you are not the first one who wants to cancel (although it would really be beyond my understanding why would someone want to cancel the best backtesting software in the world), so I'm sure there is a way to do it.

support@cmlviz.com - I was also subscribed and cancelled because like you I found the value add lacking BUT their service and communications were always prompt and not problematic. They will unsubscribe you very quickly.

Many thanks. Much appreciated

Well, the answer is not particularly deep. The fact of the matter is that I did not find the service particularly useful for my own trading needs and have now built my own backtesting / predictive analysis tools that are a better fit for me. Consequently, I no longer need the service. I have no particular criticism of the service and I can see why others might find it useful.

I have found numerous bugs that i have reported  and i just found another today. sigh... I'm not sure how much backtest data is still valid after my recent discovery. 

I don't usually peep up on this board but that last statement is inaccurate. Virtually every time someone thinks they found "a bug," it turns out that it's user error.

I agree with @Ophir Gottlieb I have been using the tool for about 2 years now, each time I thought I found a bug I contacted their customer service and it turned out to be something in my configuration. Customer support has been really good. New features are being added all the time.

I think at current prices, it's a bargain. I wouldn't be surprised to see the price double.

Ophir, I really appreciate the service you provide and I am in no way talking down your service. I have previously contacted email support about this and they have acknowledged the issue. Could you look into the Options Expiry dates that falls on Saturdays and those where the back test closes days after contract expiry.

 

Also I am lazy to send an email to support again but there is an issue with the *custom* strategy. If you have tried replicating a strangle for example using the custom, and compare that with the *Strangle* preset, the results are different. After looking into it , the bug was found to be that it chooses the wrong strike price for the Delta i chose.

Sorry, it is Call and Put spreads that have this problem and also not all companies are affected by this bug. For example AAPL has this issue but GOOGL is fine.

What's Coming Next
In the next month we will be making an even larger upgrade:

1. Intra-day prices for stop losses and limits
We will use intraday prices to see if stops and limits are triggered

2. Custom strategies
Create and save your own custom strategies (up to 4 legs)
This enables calendars, butterflies, ratios, and more

3. Dollar denominated spreads
If you don't like deltas, use dollar spreads (e.g.: test a $5 wide call spread in Apple)

4. More history
We will be adding a fourth and fifth year of history to the back-tester

May I ask what is the progress for #1 and #3? As far as I know I don't see these being implemented. I am seeing a lot of losing trades that the loss is beyond my stoploss limit because they are based on EOD price. No way to change to dollar denominated spread either.

The community preferred technicals and technical alerts in real-time, so we built #2 and #4 and a huge build out to techncials inteads. Intra day option pricing has virtually no demand relative to other features have asked for.

@Ophir Gottlieb ... @Kim ...

What's the current SO deal on this? The link at the top goes to a $99 deal, but I can get that just going to the site directly, so no 30% discount as stated?

Strange timeline on this thread ... wild activity up until October 2017, then sudden death ... did the activity move to other SO threads, or did everyone just lose interest?

I think having some degree of intra day data would be a game changer.

You know how much can happen during the course of a single day that will be missed if you need to wait until the day is over.

If there were someway to run everything exactly the same as it currently is but add the ability to do it 15, 30, 60 minute etc. time frames, there is so much more that can be uncovered.

Maybe that many intra day time frames could be too much of a challenge to develop. But , at the very least , just having one would make a huge difference.

$99/month and the price is expected to continue increasing as new features are added. As usually, early adapters made a very decision.

There is a members only topic with over 1,700 posts. Our members are killing it using the tool.

@Kim ... 

Right, sorry, I knew that topic was there and just spaced it out ... I can see how the continuity picks up from this one.

So, repeating question just to be clear: There is no 30% discount as stated at the top of this topic ... just the $99 price?

I have read about intraday testing, being a really good feature if possible. This is extraordinarily expensive to implement so feature like that would probably necessitate either a premium level of membership required to add more money per month, Ir a possible  huge increase in the price for new members.

Also what would be interesting to see results of the trade ideas generated emails, and see if there’s an advantage prospectively. If there is, but I think that in and of itself shows the value of the back tester.

Its been awhile since I was a member.  I think adding in technical indicators was huge because my biggest complaint before was most of their backtested screens just assumed a certain market environment.  For example, look how well this low vol. strategy did in 2017 or look how great this long vol. strategy did in October 2018.   But now with the addition of technicals you can better isolate and run different strategies during different market conditions.

I would really love to see a IV indicator so for example you could test short volatility strategies only when IV is above a point and long volatility when IV is below a point.

Just signed up for the service. What’s the best way to learn the functions and backtesting of the service as many prior samples are updated and no longer apply?

Go the discover tab and watch the second movie down (note that it is password protected). Also, please use support@cmlviz.com , this is not a support board.

@Djtux (for some reason, I cannot quote your question, forum doesn't allow), I remember you asked a question 2.5 years ago.

Just subscribed yesterday to TMachine

Is there anyway to customize the scanner to scan for pre-earnings  calendars  where the trade is 21 days BE and the front sell option expires in after earnings and Close the trade 1 day before earnings

Thus a custom scanner to find the stocks like KIM's pre earning (double) calenders?

If i missed this in the discussions I am sorry, but could you then post the link?

hi there,

 

Welcome to Trade Machine.

 

You can create your own custom strategy and run it against 5 stocks at a time entering the tickers comma delimited.

 

You can see how to create a custom strategy here:

https://vimeo.com/221315614

 

There is no way to create a full blown scan for the retail product but 5 at a time does pretty well and we will make that 10 at time soon.

      How to Profit from Trading Options in Autodesk Inc Right After Earnings
       


      Date Published: 2017-05-18 
      Written by Ophir Gottlieb 

      LEDE 
      While Autodesk Inc (NASDAQ:ADSK) just crushed earnings again, sending shares soaring in the after hours trade, one option trade after earnings has been a consistent winner. It takes no earnings risk, little stock direction risk and over the last year has never lost while returning over 160% annualized returns. 

      The Trade After the Excitement 
      While most of the focus is on the actual earnings move for a stock, that's the distraction when it comes to the option market. For Autodesk Inc, irrespective of whether the earnings move was up or down, if we waited one-day after the stock move from earnings, and then sold an out of the money put spread, the results were very strong. 

      We can examine this, objectively, with a custom option back-test. Here is our earnings set-up: 
       


      Rules 
      * Open short put spread 1 day after earnings 
      * Close short put spread 29 days later 
      * Use the option that is closest to but greater than 30-days away from expiration 

      Here are the results over the last year: 
       


      That's a 47.3% return, with 4 winning trades and 0 losing trades. The total holding period was less than 4 full months, meaning the annualized return was over 160%. No earnings risk was taken -- this is not a coin flip over earnings. 

      The Logic 
      This strategy works beautifully in many companies where heavy stock volume follows the earnings release. The logic behind this trade follows a narrative that even after a bad earnings release, if we wait a day after, we find the stock at a point of equilibrium. 

      If it gapped down -- that gap is over. If it beat earnings, the downside move is already likely muted. Here's how this strategy has done over the last 6-months: 
       


      That's a 21.3% return, on 2 winning trades and 0 losing trades. Since this is a total of a two-month holding period, that 21.3% is actually over 120% annualized. 

      If you're curious, yes, this also produced positive returns over the last 3-years. Here are those results. 
       


      Now we can find some comfort in this approach where is shows 9 winning trades and just 2 losing trades over the last three-years. 

      WHAT HAPPENED 
      There are patterns to stock behaviors before and after earnings and those patterns reveal opportunities in the option market, without taking the actual risk of earnings. You can find them, stock by stock, Apple, Google, Netflix and of course Autodesk Inc are just a handful of examples. There has been edge here with this strategy.
