Happy New Year 2015! Version 1.9.8 is out

This version allows users to change the balance rule "every 8% drop" via the options to different percentages.

Cheers!

  1. Tried it but I couldn't find where one could enter a different percentage.

    1. In the options, which is available from the tools menu (which is not available after 1st week of free usage, but can be restored if a donation is made)

    2. I tried rebalance percentages greater than 10% drop from November 14, 2007 and the maximum rebalance drop showed only a 9.8% drop from the high just before the big market drop in 2008. It doesn't seem to be working for drops greater than 9.8%.

    3. You are invited to send me a detailed email with sample data for me to look at - so I can see if there's a problem, or if the data is misunderstood

  2. Apparently your 2-week policy does not allow me to replicate what I did because the full use has expired. I am not willing to invest in any backtester before I have a chance to see how it works. I don't always have the chance to use your backtester every day, sometimes I don't use it for a week or longer. I would urge you to reconsider this policy. I understand you started with freeware with the intention of eventually charging a fee but when you restrict the use over such a short period of time, people like myself will give up because we have not had the opportunity to review it thoroughly and double check for accuracy. Hey, it's your product and you can do what you want but I am not going to send you money to support a product, especially one that is advertised as freeware, until I am convinced it works and meets my needs.
