I have been trying to use VGM Style scores in some screens, but so far it doesn't appear that this can be backtested. Is anyone aware of a way to be able to backtest VGM Style rankings in RW? The style scores could be pretty useful, but less so if there is no way to backtest them. If the criteria were known, it seems that a calculation expression could be used to at least approximate the styles scores. Anyone tried anything like that?

I am also wanting to backtest the VGM strategy, but I have had no luck .

I want to back test one of the premium screens that uses VGM.  On the premium screen it has a link saying to back test it on the research wizard.

I looked for the VGM Style rankings in RW, but I CANNOT FIND IT anywhere.

If anyone knows where it can be found, please let me know.
