Download an updateThe March update to VectorVest is now available! This update brings many new features to our Model Portfolios and Trading Systems!

You will be automatically prompted to install the update in the next few days upon logging in to the VectorVest 7 program.

Trading System Viewer

We have added a new feature to quickly view your entire trading system with one click. Now you can click the Details button on the Genius box in Portfolio Manager (top right of Portfolio screen) to view all the details of the current trading system. This new feature is also available in the Genius Setup screen when selecting a saved VectorVest Trading System by clicking the More Info link.

To learn more about the Trading System Viewer, check out tonight’s (3/24/2017) Strategy of the Week video.

Model Portfolio Action Plan Changes

Now it is easier than ever to setup and follow a VectorVest Model Portfolio! When a VectorVest Model Portfolio is selected you will see an Action Plan button in the Genius box (top right of Portfolio screen). This will bring up the Action Plan for the selected Model Portfolio. If you open up the Action Plan and it is recommending trades you can click the link at the bottom of Step 2 labeled “Create a Portfolio with these symbols” to create a new portfolio which allows you to set your investment amount and purchase the selected stocks. It also sets up the entire trading plan for you and tells the Genius to start monitoring it.

Model Portfolios

Model Portfolios now show the current Genius status for the Trading System they use. They also show the Genius activity log, active stop criteria, and a text description of the Model Portfolio.

Trade Now – Modify Order

Brokerage orders can now be modified from Trade Now. The Limit Price and Stop Price can be modified from the Current Orders grid.

Other Changes

  • ProfitLocker stop criteria now has a setting to Execute from Purchase Date.
  • Trade Now can now be loaded from a Multi-View Graph.
  • Trade Now preview dialog window is now movable.
  • Trade Now correctly verifies orders for stocks that only trade in nickel increments.
