I gather it is better to take the top picks from a variety of yey screens. i.e. the whole family of screens.

It would appear to me that using that strategy, I would use,

yey, value ratio, yey2, yeypayout, and yieldyear.

Does anyone have any opinions about this?

Thanks in advance.

Mark

Backtest it in gtr1, evaluate the results, and make up your own mind.

An SOS like this above actually yielded 32% TTM for me.


Note however that the final selection(tweek) was on RRS210.

(SoS_ValueRatio 1-5) top 1 not held Dozens weekly/5-week, sell below RRS210 TOP 10

I don't know gtr1, but I could back test in Jamie Gritton's backtester.

Then take the time to learn.

Elan,

People come in with different backgrounds, and abilities.

I imagine you have a computer back ground, so it is easy for you to learn that. I don't have much of a computer background. It could take me 15 or more times longer for me to learn it than you.

I have a math background, so maybe I could learn topology quicker than you could.

I also have a math background. And I've done computer programming. I used to be very good with FORTRAN and PL/1. Those skills have absolutely nothing to do with building backtests in gtr1. There is no computer programming involved. There are some hard to follow instructions available for gtr1 which, if I had to rely on them, I could never translate into a valid test. And there are numerous examples of tests created by Robbie and others, which are reasonably easy to decipher. There are ready made examples for all the standard screens. Understanding them and perhaps modifying them slightly to suit your needs is not rocket science. Don't look for lazy excuses.

There's nothing wrong with starting out with a standard backtest at backtest.org, but gtr1 is immensely more valuable and worth the effort for something you're going to put your hard earned money into.

I did not realize that there were examples to look at. I think it is at least worth trying to learn it. (I thought for a non computer person that it was rocket science)

Hi,
I always hoped that someone would have an online meeting or a video on how to use gtr 1
