MaxBarsBack [SOLVED]

Hello all, If I'm understanding MaxBarsBack I'm not able to code this property into a signal? Or is that strictly SetMaxBarsBack? I believe I can code an indicator? Can I code this into a function? It would be a simple function counting Bars from a defined start point and adding that to the MaxBarsB...

Re: Genetic Optimization settings and behaviour in relation to number of cores [SOLVED]

So how would increasing the number of generations effect results. I have found that multiplying this number by number of real cores has produced stable and repeatable results with incremental genetic optimization. This is not optimum by any stretch of the imagination as it greatly increases process ...

Re: Genetic Optimization settings and behaviour in relation to number of cores [SOLVED]

Wilkinsw, I arrived at a similar conclusion without completely understanding the why. My solution was much the same as yours, increase the number of generations. At 3x generations I have found consistent results. At 10x absolutely consistent results. I also tested with very high iteration numbers, f...

Re: MULTICHARTS 11.0 RELEASE

Another point about the WFO - as mentioned in the link below, "If there is an open trade by the end of OOS period, it is not counted in report." This may distort the results, especially when the OOS length is small. For systems where the "avg # bars in winning trades" is lower t...

Has anyone ever used the Jurack(sp) Velocity Indicator? If not is there a similar indicator that might be used within Multicharts? I have used this type of indicator successfully with NT7 but have not found one for easy language.

The reference for differences between standard and non standard are a bit confusing. Can someone with more knowledge expand on this concept.
