    If anyone feels like being a gem and helping me do something that will take them no more than 45 seconds please let me know.

    Heres the deal

    I need someone to come up with the results of a system that trades 100K of total cash spread evenly over 10 stocks

    A
    ALL
    MWW
    MRK
    ANF
    NI
    VMC
    T
    SLB
    CCE

    We will be using a 20/50 day moving average crossover to enter positions and using RSI to confirm the order BEFORE entering

    We want to use a 7% stop loss and 15% trailing stop

    Can anyone help us out? I just got a trial of Meta Stock but cant work the damn thing.

    Im willing to pay a few bucks out of my poor student account for this help too!

    Here's a zip file that contains a zipfile of the data directory and an FOSetup file. Unzip the data directory into your main MetaStock data directory, it contains 10 years of daily data for each symbol. You can execute the FOSetup file to import the 3 example systems with notes and one chart template.

    Best of luck.
