Change % Position Size

It seems that I can not change the position size on PMO Gogo system.

Right! The Rotation models simply rotate stocks, selling one and buying the next with the highest PMO. You CAN adjust it indirectly, by changing the Symbols To Hold value in the Compose Model panel. Also unchangeable: Margin Factor and Max Open Positions, for obvious reasons once you consider the nature of a Rotation model.

thanks for the reply. I have "symbols to hold 10" so I would expect a position size of 10%. But it is 33% which doesn't make sense to me.

Ok, after changing the # of symbols to hold it automatically changed the position size.

I also noticed that the Settings tab shows "33%" for that figure after you save and come back to the model. It looks like a cosmetic bug, apparently ignoring the real setting and just leaving a default value in there. It does seem cosmetic, however, not affecting backtests.

Yikes! I see a mismatch there too, I have 12 open positions at the end of the run. Something's amiss in our simple rotation model.

Corrected, your model now shows the correct 10% sizing when opened on Qcom.
