Considerable Demand "Watchlist Ranking Chartscript Ranking"

Postby bomberone1 » 25 Nov 2010

Dear Developers,

As you may know, Wealth-Lab Developer 4.0 had the feature of running a strategy script against a "watchlist", (a list of securities), collecting the backtested result in a comprehensive window. This was called "Watchlist Ranking".

Also a useful feature was running all strategies against a security data series, presenting results in a windows similar to "Watchlist Ranking".
In both cases there may be some errors, because some script assume only daily or intraday data series, or never triggers trades due to parameters settings, but nonetheless a similar feature is extremely interesting in order to discover ideas of trading to develop. Many times I have found great trading strategies by first running a "Chartscript Ranking" in Wealth-Lab 4, I think it will be a great feature to add in Multicharts 7.

Please have a look at "Watchlist Ranking" and "Chartscript Ranking", part XI and XII in the attached WLD 4 manual.
Let me know if you need more info.
