Re: Mass Compile Strategies From Text Files

Good for you guys, I still can't get this done in normal MC. Now I have another idea on how to get this done: do you guys think it would be possible somehow to read only the conditions / rules from a file or database somehow with MC? The problem is, there is no such function as "strtobool", and most...

Re: Mass Compile Strategies From Text Files

Hi Svetlana, I have tried it. What exactly does Ctr + Shift + F5 do in this dialogue? What I'm noticing is that now THE ENTIRE database of thousands of strategies, studies and functions, are all marked as "Uncompiled". I have to now run "Compile all", which will take me 4-5 hours, because everything...

Mass Compile Strategies From Text Files

Dear MC Seniors & Staff, I have a situation with a client where I need to manage multiple portfolios of 600-800 strategies. They all come with PL source codes in individual text files. It's a point where it's becoming unmanageable to copy & paste individual strategies into PL Editor and compile them...

Re: Changing the color of certain chart labels

It's kind of tricky to find this and it's not very clear why, but actually, it's the "Wick" setting on candlestick bars that controls the colors of the name of the instrument, the timeframe and the data source.

Re: Open Positions in Paper Trader Account Disappeared

Hey guys,

I have the same thing happening to me actually. Was this issue solved?

EDIT: Broker profile didn't connect by default. Connecting broker profile manually solved the issue of trades "disappearing" after restart.

Re: ADE implementation [SOLVED]

Hi TJ! Thank you for the fast response. The link you posted only has a 64 bit version link to ELCollections.DLL but some of the functions I'm trying to use seem to reside in ELCollections2.DLL! Where can I find a 64 bit version for that one?

Thank you so much,

Re: Reading a txt file in power language? [SOLVED]

OK so: it seems that if IOData.DLL finds a line that is more than 254 characters long in the file, it will not look at that line or any other files below that line.

I guess you can edit the CPP and change const int BUF_SIZE = 255; to mitigate the issue.

Re: Reality versus bactesting

Not really. All I know is LMAX, and they only have a option to trigger the trade when the opposite order type (bid-ask) was hit, but in case of intraday strategies keep the order from being triggered at least 50-80% of the time so it's not such a great feature to use. That's as close as I've seen it...

It doesn't pick the "best", it picks the level you specify - as described earlier. ;)

As I described above - I think you may have many strategic and conceptional issues here. IOG should be the very last thing for you to be thinking about here.

Hi Leonel, I've looked at your screenshots, and here are a few thoughts I'd like to offer you: - Those stop losses look really tiny. Based on this behavior your model has a chance of being overfit. Try developing a system without a stop loss at all. If it's profitable, you know the system has an edg...

Hey Milan, When you turn the strategy on and it looks good, did you check if opens and closes both happen within the same bar?
