2) the backtest engine at single click can generate the returns for exits ranging from 1/2/3/4/5/10/20/overnight gap / next day open to close / 1st +’ve/-‘ve exit in 5 days with the data going back to 1990 

3) the quant-ideas feature , a data mining engine that can generate , daily about 2.5 – 3 million trading strategies , where a user can choose trade ideas from , based on %wn rate , and avg profit expectation ..

4) and seasonality search engine feature

A regretful announcement

From my new found freind and a good acquaintance

My beautiful 37 year old wife xxx passed away at home Friday night after a 3 year campaign of attrition with Colo-rectal cancer.  I can say with certainty, she gave everything she could to survive and thrive in the years since diagnosis and in her last hours. She remains a shining example of how to live one’s life under tremendous adversity

Separately, may I humbly suggest that those of the appropriate age talk to their doctor about fecal occult tests and regular colonoscopies.  In my wife’s situation, there was no chance for early diagnosis.  However, I would be overjoyed if my words caused someone to act and catch an emerging problem.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the following: Minnesota Medical Foundation for further dedication to Amplatz Children’s Hospital Research Funds (https://makingagift.umn.edu/onlinegiving/enterFund.do?&fundCode=F_CHDF&areaCode=A_CHILDH&ownerCode=O_MDH&desc_source=CWXXMAHWBGFT)

or more traditionally:

University of Minnesota Foundation
for further dedication to Amplatz Children’s Hospital Research Funds

McNamara Alumni Center

200 Oak Street SE, Suite 500

Minneapolis, MN 55455-2010 (612)624-3333

My family and I would be honored in knowing that contributions will get local researchers closer to stamping out cancer in all its forms and other diseases particularly for pediatric patients.

With deepest appreciation,
