Strategy calculating progress/note missing

Hi, while loading an indicator to a chart, in the above text-line one can see a "calculating..."-note. But not so for strategies. The same after format strategy an recalculating. That would be fine to see a note for that, especially for longterm calculations, i.e. with the BarMagnifier-Opt...

Hello Helmut, In 2010 the last trading day in SPY was on Friday 05/28, in 2013 Thursday 03/28. In this cases a modification is required. The 2010/05/31 was the Memorial Day in USA.

Hi Massimo, thank you for your solution.

Hello, is it possible to pre-loop a complete chart and start a final calculation after that? Idea: I need the lastDayOfWeek, lastDayOfMonth and lastDayOfYear for a calculation.

Reset Stop or Limit [SOLVED]

Hello,

my logic orders next bar at limit/stop. How can I cancel/reset the limit/stop at the bar/tick where the level would be reached? A reset at the tick before works, but no more when the level is reached.
Thanks.

Hi Josh, thanks. Not a problem, to work with barsSinceEntry in other cases than in "period"-scenarios (like highest(h, barsSinceEntry). In Period-Scenarios, seems it have to go "by feet": I.e. to get the distance highestHigh - lowestLow since entry, determine high (hh) and low(ll...

Hi, it seems, it is a general problem with barsSinceEntry and MaxbarsBack. Unfortunately, Fredi's solution is not practical... When I want to check large positions with more bars as defined in MaxBarsBack, it can only check i.e. highest(h, MaxbarsBack). TJ's solution works, but eats code-lines... Th...

Re: CPU Usage During Optimization

Hello Henry,
yes, same strategy in this case. But that is independent, with other strategies it is the same effect.
Maybe there is a hint with changing chartsettings or create a new one/new workspace. I will try something with it.

Re: Statusline - status of studies

The point is, if I have 20 loaded indicators and even as many strategies (for testing purposes), the statusline needs a lot place above the chart. To load all seperately would be a roundabout way in this case. So the thought, to hide them from the statusline but not completely delete from the chart.

Re: Statusline - status of studies

thanks, Arnie!
Activate/deactive (and greyed out) with a click on it works. I thought to an option, to clear the statusline from deactivated indicators, but not delete it completely. (new activation via format->indicators...)...quasi a third state: active/inactive (greyed-out)/off (hidden).

Re: Observations and workarounds for Genetic Optimizations..

Hello Dave,

I discovered, that the count of generations and population is different from time to time (after a few optimizations or after restart of MC) with the same parameters and settings. What is the reason?

Thanks.

Statusline - status of studies

Hello,

can one see the state of the contained studies in the statusline? If I set a status to "off", the study is still showing in the statusline. Rather it could be also hidden there or marked as "off" (better hidden).

Thanks,
