Robbie is correct! For example taking just the first screen 3ptRelVal
from this weeks report. Screening on GTR1 and SIPro using radiscript
give the following results:

GTR1: BGFV FIX HZO CSIQ BGS STM COOP BLDR BMCH STC
SIPro: BGS COOP BLDR STC EGO DFIN KGC CCS CECE TTEC

Only 4 of the 10 BGS,COOP,STC and BLDR are common!

Backtesting 3ptRelVal for the last 10 years firs using the GTR1 Version
with Robbie’s extended fields and other improvements and then using my
downloaded historical SIP data and the standard radiscript definition as
posted every week.

       GTR1    SIPro
CAGR 11.6 8.6
GSD 25.6 19.0
MDD 49.3 25.3
AT 11.5 10.1


As you can see the results you may expect from running backtests on GTR1
no longer correspond to the results anyone should expect to get using
standard radiscript based screens posted every week.

The only way you can reliably expect to get what you have backtested is to subscribe to SIP, download the EOM data, retrieve the hd5 hash code and depend on GTR1 as your screener. Or subscribe to Portfolio 123 and depend on their backtester and screener.
