### Optimizing Boolean Parameters

Optimizing Boolean Parameters
Hello, I am wondering how I go about optimizing Boolean parameters.

Ex.
I’m trying to find if the optimal value is true or false.
If condition1 = true then buy vs if condition1 = false then buy.

Any ideas?

You can make the condition numeric.

eg.

Code: Select all

`If LogicA = 1 then BUY  elseif LogicA = 0 then BUY;`

ps. MultiCharts can optimize your strategy for you, using either True/False or numeric logic.

### Re: Optimizing Boolean Parameters

Hello TJ,

Thank you for your suggestion. I came up with the following solution. I can then find whether the optimal value is one or zero.

Input: Strategy(0);

if Strategy <> 0 then
