Re: Optimization By linear Equity Curve

Hello, I'm really excited to see this metric! I was able to get it working using the provided workspace. I then tried to get my own workspace working but the Custom Fitness Value is always 0 and I'm not sure why. My custom workspace has a data1 and data2, 5 min bars for 5 years. The !optimize! signa...

Re: Referencing Bars in the Future

Hi Andrew,

As an example I have Data1 (SPX) and Data2 (custom data) loaded in the chart.

Buy if Data2(200 bars in future) > Data2(today).

Does that help?

Referencing Bars in the Future

Hi, I have custom data that I made that I imported into MC, is it possible to reference future bars in this data in MC? The custom data is a forecasted estimate of the future. I know you cannot do this in TS and it's obvious as to why. A workaround for me would be to post date my data and reference ...

Custom Criteria - TotalTrades > X [SOLVED]

Hi, When running optimizations I would like to filter out systems that have less than x amount of total trades. While still seeing systems that have the highest NetProfit. I'm guessing entering JS in the Custom Criteria place is the correct area to do this in? I tried but was not able to get it work...

Re: Plot and Export Indicator : ZigZag [SOLVED]

I missed this for some reason before. When I place a 10% on INTC I notice that the output values are correct but the dates are off.

For example:
6/2/2014; 26.67

26.67 is the correct value for last ZigZag high but date should be 1/15/2014. Do you see the same thing?
