Import Specification


Whether to keep multiple redundant stocks of the same company in the data file


False - don't keep redundant stocks (default)

True - keep redundant stocks


By default, when you import data that includes company names, RealTest uses the names to look for redundancies.

Specifically, if two names include " class " or " series " (note the spaces on either side of each string), and the strings up to and including that word are identical, then the two stocks are considered redundant.

When a pair of redundant stocks is found, the most recent 20-day average turnover is calculated for each, and only the one with the larger average turnover is kept.

Redundant stocks that were removed are shown in the Import Log if one was created, like this example for the Norgate Nasdaq 100 Current & Past watchlist:
