Getting started guide for backtesting
The history page gives you access to flilter stocks in the past based on 900+ filters that all revolve around Day or the "active day".
To effectively use the history page you need to remember:
- Day  is the active day
- Day [-1] is the day before the active day
- Day  is the day after the active day
You can compare any metric to either a set value, ie Day Gap % > 30, or to another metric, ie Day High > Day Premarket High. Alongside Day[-1] and Day , the same goes for 5 days before and 5 days after the active day.
Here is a simple example with the following scanning criteria:
- Date: Last 90 Days
- Day  Open: Price between $2 - $15
- Day  Gap %: Greater than 20%
- Day  Volume: Greater than 2,000,000
- Share Type: Equals Common Stock
In the following articles, we will be reviewing different ways to scan for different criteria to give an in-depth introduction to the history page. If you ever wonder what are all of the filters that can be used on the history page, please refer to the history definitions page.
Feedback: Send us feedback on your experience with the history page or any filters you would be interested in using in the future. We believe the learning curve to use the history page is light, but we also created the page!
