Description

The MC optimization is very fast, much faster than TS, but we think there are things to improve in the walk forward optimization process.
First, it would be easier to divide the historic data IS / OOS in percentage instead of bars. Also, it should be possible to optimize OOS regardless of the optimization chosen.
However, our main suggestion is that MC adds a process similar to WFO that it has TD. It is absurd to specify the functions of the WFO because they are many and well known. We are excited about MC and its speed but we are also excited with the WFO of TS. The power of MC with the usefulness of this tool it would be a dream!
It would also be useful to add some fitness functions of TS, as the TS index and the profit perfect correlation. It is also very useful the robustness index, showed in the performance table in TS.
Thanks and regards

I assume the is about following:
1) Specify IS/OOS as % of timeline available
2) Multiple iterations should occur for a range of IS [IS1 IS2 IS3 IS4] and a range of OOS [OOS1 OOS2 OOS3 OOS4] where the range step could be again specified in %/step increase of a min IS and max IS (and similar for OOS), as Tradestation does it.

glad to see this as confirmed - is there a target for it?

It is not yet targeted for any specific version, the task will be updated, once its status changes.
