is the data downloaded from mt4 on workdays different from weekends?

It could be that the new bar data available on Monday will destroy your strategy.

why can new bar data on Monday destroy my strategy?

I have a lot of experience with Martingale strategies (not from FSBPro) and they all blow up eventually.

Please notice we can always use "data horizon start time" to limit the maximum number of bars we use to build our strategies.

Yep -- you're right -- sorry...  I forgot about being able to use the data horizon start and end dates to control how much and which data is used.   

Popov just now mentioned an "automated data uploading service" -- I think that will be very, very cool.

I even have no time now to explain what are the new things, but someday I'll find time.
We are working now on 2-3 new things:
- automated data uploading service
- multi-currency portfolio
- more portfolio stats
- more acceptance criteria filetrs
- some kind of portfolio correlation analysis
- walk forward optimization for a strategy
- walk forward option in the Reactor
- multi-currency Validator

I hope all these will be ready within 6 months. I have a great working spirit and inspiration and cannot stop codding new tools. Unfortunately this gives me very limited time to discuss ideas in the forum or to make new videos.

Have fun and trade safe!

Hi, thanks for answering. All these future features sound great. Lookin forward to being able to build multicurrency portfolios of no correlated strategies smile Thanks for posting your roadmap with EA Studio. Best regards!

If this were to be implemented, I would request this be optional and not the default.  I sort of have an aversion to old data:

(a) Indicator parameters are computed using a data set.  I would prefer these computations be performed using the latest and greatest data.  When you include old data, then it skews the results using data that is no longer relevant.  I can't say where the cut-off line is between old and new data, just that I don't think more data is necessarily better.  I'd rather the focus be on newer data.

(b) The larger the data set, the longer the computation will take.  It may not be noticeable because Popov's algorithms are so fast, but if you double the size of the data set then you will halve the number of strategies that will be generated / optimized within a fixed period of time.  I'd prefer more strategies because then there is a greater probability of discovering some winners.

Everything is a trade-off -- I'm just suggesting if this feature were added that there be an option whether or not to use it.

Hi Steve, thanks for your comments. Please notice we can always use "data horizon start time" to limit the maximum number of bars we use to build our strategies. On the contrary it is not possible to have more data (for example m15 bars) than the bars that the broker allows us to download. This data (the data from the broker) is changed continuously /cycled, so the broker doesn't allow us to download more than a number (fixed) of bars. Being able to store more bars (instead o losing them) is something good. We could always use them all or only a few...

Portfolio Maker - create portfolio EA from FSBPro-generated strategies

Hi Alamehmazen,

I've recommended a software in the post here https://forexsb.com/forum/post/47885/#p47885

It make changing file names in a folder or bulk a breeze.

FSB Generator Out Of Sample not showing/or highlighted? (in green)

Thank you for your quick reply. Apologies for unecessarily wasting your valuable time with my learning curve..

Enjoy your Sunday further.

Much appreciated.

FSB Generator Out Of Sample not showing/or highlighted? (in green)

So, I can now see (and rest assured) that the Generator is only running on the specified 'in sample' portion of the data.

Yes, your observations are correct. FSB Pro cuts out the OOS part and works with the IS part only. It loads the complete data set and recalculates after finishing.

FSB Generator Out Of Sample not showing/or highlighted? (in green)

Perhaps you can delete this redundant topic as it appears that I don't have that option, nor can I further edit my original post.

- Tried again and I now see OOS in green on the one strategy selected by FSB to display when I stop the Generator.

My mistake and apologies.
