Hi everyone,

I am backtesting a model which requires me to find scans for prior periods. ie March 1 . I am already using Finviz, but they only allow you to scan the current day.

Any suggestions as to how I can find scans for past periods?

You'll need a combination of backtesting, custom database (Excel, R, SQL, whatever), whose scope is way beyond a single post

Hi there!

Did you check Market In&Out ( I like to use it because you can scan for an arbitrary number of previous periods and you can base your scan on daily, weekly or monthly. I am not affiliated nor a subscriber of the site, but I am considering a subscription.

Best regards,
