I would like to be able to set/read variables that are independent of individual stocks and are maintained for the duration of the test period. For example, I might want to have a market state defined as either bull or bear based on some calculation that I specify. NOTE: This is currently done in the hedge function but I would like to have it work independently so that stock buy/sell rules can access the state.

Another example of a state variable might be the phase of a business cycle.
