Click on the stock ticker to view more details about the instrument and see why it ranked where it did based on the criteria you've selected.
Once a strategy has been defined, it can be backtested across five years of data and compared to the index of your choice. This gives you a clear view of how your strategy would have performed historically, helping you to understand if it could "beat the market" or if adjustments may be required.
If you scroll past the results table, you will then find the part of the page where you can backtest your strategy. Select the index you would like to use to backtest your strategy against, then press Calculate.
Blue line: Your strategy's performance over the past 5 years.
Red line: The performance of the index of you choice.
Dropdown: Select another index for comparison.
If your strategy isn't beating the market, feel free to adjust the parameters of your screen and retest as many times as you'd like.
