1) When I run a Portfolio Expert with 100 Strategies inside and out of these 100 strategy, there is 1 very good strategy (number 51st strategy) I want to keep, how do I re-export it back to the EA Studio and zoom into that particular strategy? How do I re-extract the strategy from a Portfolio Expert?
a) Do I reload the Collection file and then count the number of the strategy one by one till I reach number 51st EA and then press down load the strategy and open it in the Editor? (what happened if I missed count and ended up with a wrong EA)
b) I'm not asking for recalculating a Portfolio Expert. I'm not asking how to re-import an Expert/strategy from a Collection or from an individual save Expert file. I want to re-import or extract the Strategy from a Portfolio Expert. is there such a method (other than counting one by one from the Collection file till I reached the strategy's number/ranking).
Because the Portfolio Expert uses a different numbering system (ranking method) to identify the EA, while EA Studio uses ID numbering method, it is hard for us to identify which EA is which, other than counting them ourselves manually.
c) You already have a function via Validator whereby I can upload a Portfolio Expert whereby the strategies (only validated ones) can be transfer back to the Collection so that I can zoom into a particular Strategy/Expert to examine it further.
What I'm asking is, either
1) you can add in 1 extra step whereby the Uploaded Portfolio Expert (via the Validator) can be transferred directly to the Collection folder (without the need to valid, that's step 2. Create this extra 1st step, give user the option to straight away transfer the Portfolio Expert to Collection file so that we can open the pruned Portfolio Expert, i.e. I deleted all the rest of the 99 EA and left only 1 particular EA eg number 51st EA and zoom into that 1 particular Expert/strategy
2) You can create another function (outside of the Validator section) whereby user can upload a Portfolio Expert and open it in the Collection section. Now we can upload a Collection file and then add all the strategies from the Collection folder into the Portfolio. What I'm asking is the other way round, we can upload a (pruned)Portfolio Expert and open it in the Collection file.
3) Alternatively, you can create another set of numbering system to rank the Strategies in ranking order, such as strategy number 1, 2, 3, 4...etc till 100 (in addition to it's other ID number), so that I can just scroll down to strategy number 51st from the collection and click to examine the Expert. This sounds like the other easiest method.
That means, when we view the strategies in the Collection section, in each strategy box. There are 1) ID numbering, 2) The currency pair and the Time Frame 3) the date and time when the strategy was created.
You can add another piece of information, 4) The Strategy's ranking number, i.e number 1-100. So that user just have to scroll down and look for a particular strategy such as number 51st EA.
Bottom line is...
We can test out 100 strategies in 1 Portfolio Expert, surely we aren't expecting all these 100 strategies going to be good and profitable, there are only some we want to keep and then collate them together as 1 Portfolio Expert, how are we going to combine strategies from different Portfolio Expects into 1 consolidate Portfolio Expert? Is there such method available currently?
Question: When I use the MT4 Tracker to prune/delete those strategies that I don't want, eg delete 99 out 100 strategies, if i were to re-import the pruned Porfolio Expert, does it mean it has only 1 strategy left (because I have pruned the 99) or the 100 strategies are still in the (pruned) Portfolio Expert, the "prune" process (via MT4 Tracker) doesn't delete the 99 strategies, it only "hide" it and prevent it from trading?
I'm asking this because I want to prune out the 99 strategies from the Portfolio Expert and left with the only one that I want to re-import back to EA Studio so that I can open up and view this particular strategy (without having to count the strategy numbering one by one and accidentally zoom into the wrong strategy due to missing counting) and save it's rule as Preset Indicators.
Does anyone has any idea how to get this done? Kindly enlighten me the process. Thanks
