MetaStock system tests

  1. Hello,
    I’ve been using MetaStock for a couple of weeks now and have built up a collection of indicators and a few systems tests along the way. I have a few more ideas I would like to either test or find the indicator to employ into MS. I wonder if anyone can help me with any of the following:

    1. I have Darvas’s Trend trading indicator, but I am looking for the System or Explorer test code.
    2. Parabolic System test
    3. System test for 3/3 High/Low Channel Beakout
    4. MOM/MA system test
    5. Indicator and system test for Displaced MA’s
    6. Dr. Eldr’s Triple Screen Trading system
    4. Indicator and system test for 4% weekly change rule

    Metastock has always had one of the lamest system testers around, and the new version doesn't improve it much. I switched to TechnifilterPlus, but WealthLab, Tradestation and others might also work.

    I think you are hurting yourself by trying to do system testing with MS.

    With something like TF you can test systems over huge stock lists quickly and efficiently and REALLY find out what works and what doesn't. (trust me on this one....most of the conventional TA 'wisdom' is worse than uselss, but it will take a long time to figure it out with MS).

    Best of luck,
