Trendlines, Text, etc. on Subcharts

Dear All, I would appreciate if you could help. I have a scanner window and have linked the instruments to a chart. So effectively when I click on instruments on the scanner, the adjacent chart in the workspace displays the relevant chart. When I draw trendlines on the chart itself, and switch to di...

Re: Market Analyser scan set up

Dear All,

Is scanning for a signal a feature which is available through the scanning or is the scanning feature only available for indicators?

Many thanks for your help.

The report is generated and then I take the first line which shows the best optimised setting (40 days ...

Re: Indicator values to be included in Signals

Dear TJ, Many thanks. I have gone through a lot of material but still seem to be puzzled by a few concepts and how the script has to be written. To mention one as an example I have been trying to sort out one just now after spending more than 5 hours trying to test a piece of script and modifying it...

Re: Optimisation

Hi Josh, Many thanks. I think I had completely switched off and purely scrolling to the last column without taking notice of all those zero values. I was expecting them not to come up on the optimisation report at all so was ignoring anything in the previous columns. Thanks a lot for pointing this o...

I am trying to build a strategy whereby when a certain indicator hits a certain value, a buy or sell signal is generated. For example if MACD value (reading from the ind...

Re: Optimisation

Dear Josh, I have tried a slight modification as MC does not recognise the function LengthslowMA for some reason so I am using FastLength, SlowLength instead. Although I can successfully compile the signal, when running optimisation still I am getting a report where some values of FastLength are lar...

Dear All, I have had a problem with optimisation of the MA crossover and would like to narrow down the optimisation report to only those scenarios where the slow moving average (days) > fast moving average (days).

Re: Strategy Performance Report

Dear Henry, Many thanks for your comments. I was looking at an option to calculate the buy and hold return during the period of 2000 - 2011 however it seems that the buy and hold return is calculated to the last bar displayed on the chart. Is there a way for the performance report to base the figure...

Re: Portfolio Backtester vs. Strategy Performance Report

Dear Henry,

Many thanks for the help. It is working now. All settings were identical except the data range. I had forgotten to include a range rather than bars back.

Many thanks again.

Strategy Performance Report

Dear MC, I wonder if there is a way around the way buy and hold return is calculated in the performance report. It appears that the buy and hold return is calculated by dividing the initial capital by the entry price under the strategy to calculate the number of shares purchased however the number o...

Hi, I have been just fiddling with optimisation for moving averages and it appears that we can run both exhaustive and genetic modes which is great however the problem I have is that as I am using '2MovAvglines' LE for entry and SE for exit I need both to have identical fast and slow averages rather...

I have been fiddling with some of the scripts in order to limit the scope of the studies, for example to carry out the study from 2001 onwards. Unfortunately it does not seem to be responding to the changes I am making. Is there any...
