I find myself constantly asking the following questions when trading: 1- what breakouts are most significant? 2- what dollar amount does a stock have to move after which the probability of a reversal and significantly affected? 3- how does a stock move in relation to time of year? 4- how significant is an IBD composite score to a stocks movement? 5- How significant are futures prices are to stock movements? 6- how significant are options prices to stock movements? 7- what is the average distance between open and high, open and low? the list goes on and on and I'm not sure a backtesting package will be able to help me. Most of them have built in metrics to judge strategies that may be different from what I'm looking for. How do I start answering these questions? Thanks in advance!
