There is a problem with intraday Yahoo data. It seems the format has changed since November 1st 2017 and QunatTrader cannot download intraday data. We are working on a solution.

Yahoo data is not still avaible. How long do you expected this situation ? For this time I use Portfolio Builder.

Hello, can somebody tell me what holding price is in portfolio Allocations section on the new site? They look random to me. The price for UGLD is listed as $7.87?. Should it be open price of the holding on the first trading day of the month? Please correct me if I am wrong. My main concern here is that the monthly performance calculations are not working properly or there is some issue with current pricing data feed. And I have to stick with the old spreadsheet.

I have a question about the hedge. I have added VXX into the QT for UIS 3x. It is selected 90% of the time over 3 years. Have you looked into that as a hedge?

In principal we avoid going long VXX as it is a long time looser (graph goes to zero). We actually base MYRS on this fact by investing in it’s almost opposite, ZIV. I did try VXX in UIS 3x and if you do not change the settings (DR algo and add VXX as last ETF) the software assumes VXX is the hedge (DR algorithm always includes allocation to the hedge) so it always includes it in the allocation. If you shift the algo to SR and use top 2 ETFs you will get different results.
Adding VXX was not a disaster. I would expect much worse. It actually helps in recent history. It would be interesting looking into it more. I also tried VXZ with not such good results.
Soon we will be able to include any reasonable custom strategy that you build (ie, 3xUIS_VXX) in our webapp. All we would need is a XXX_Strategy.ini file from you and we could track it on our online app.

Can we use decimal number for holding weight column? Otherwise total weight of conservative and aggressive risk portfolio for November looks like 102%.
Strategy locations of Moderate Risk Portfolio
NAS100 – NASDAQ 100 Strategy 38%
GLD-USD – Gold-Currency Strategy 22%
USSECT – U.S. Sector Rotation Strategy 40%
Why there is no ETF holdings (EUO/GLD) from Gold-Currency Strategy?
