Any way to 'test' filter
« on: June 12, 2015, 10:30:33 PM »
So I'm new to this whole lending thing and I've set up a filter on BV.  Is there any way to 'test' the filter before making it live?  I don't want all my money to be dumped in to random notes or worse!!!

One tip is to set your "Maintain minimum cash reserve" just below your current Lending Club "Available Cash".

I don't think BlueVestment offers a test facility.

I think it is common to test general filters on nsrplatform (formerly NickelSteamRoller)

Thanks for the tip, but I 'dumped' a little more cash in to my account than the max. reserve limit... silly me.

Will the nsrplatform test the filter I set up on BV?  I'm just worried the filter is buggy since it doesn't seem entirely polished.

Hmm... I get it.  You could use max spending per period. i.e. $25 or $50 or $100.  I'd suggest $25/note to start out too.  New loans are added at 6am, 10am, 2pm, and 6pm Pacific Time seven days a week.

No. NSR is a different service/company/group but you can test generic filters on historical loans.

Doesn't the max spending per period fail pretty much every time since it doesn't cap until loans are issued and by nature, there is a delay from buying in to issuance, so BV would just keep buying for several days until a loan is actually issued?  That could mean thousands of notes if the filter fails miserably.

I could activate it for one loan refresh period and immediately disable a minute later, but that could still mean several hundred notes.

Try to duplicate your BV filter parameters using nsrplatform as suggested above.
It's likely the majority of BV filter users did their back testing using nsrplatform.
You don't have to be a subscriber to the service or even log in.
nsrplatform may have all the parameters you've used in your BV filter.
Then you just have to watch out for "typos" and make sure what you enter into BV is what you tested.

NSR offers more than just backtesting so there is no need to toggle back and forth between BV and NSR.  An investor can use NSR Picks or customize their own filters.  From there the filters can be back tested but also run in simulation mode to see performance.
