Topic: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

Hello Traders,

I'm glad to present a new major release: FSB Pro v3.9.5 RC. (Release Candidate)

Download link: https://forexsb.com/downloads/FSB_Pro_v3.9.5.exe


New Features:
- Premium Data Feed - FSB Pro is connected to a new Data Feed server and can load more than 50 symbols with max 200 000 bars.

- Easy import from MT - From FSB Pro v3.9.1 we can now export Json files from MT4 or MT5 and drag and drop the file over FSB Pro. It works the same way as in EA Studio. The best part is that FSB Pro creates the necessary Data Source and Symbol settings. You can use the data export scripts from EA Studio. The scripts are also attached at the end of this post.

- Monte Carlo optimized - now Monte Carlo is 2-4 times faster and more reliable.
     - The "Randomize data" algorithm is updated (as we did in EA Studio).
     - Added an option "Minimum deviation range" in steps. It guarantees the indicator parameters will have changed values when we use the "Randomize indicator parameters" option.

- Automatic exchange rates - Greatly improved the user experience when calculating the Account Exchange Rate. Now FSB Pro loads the exchange rates automatically at every start. We don't need to update them manually for the different symbols and accounts.

- Added Strategy Properties panel in Generator - now it is possible to change the Strategy Properties from the Generator. it is not necessary to go back to the Editor if you find you need to change the Entry amount or the averaging rules.

Fixes and improvements
- Increased the default "Max count of bars" limitation to 200 000 bars.
- It is not necessary to set Symbol Type in the Control Panel -> Symbols page.
- Introduced "Profit currency" on the Symbol page. It helps to find the correct Account Exchange Rate.
- Now FSB Pro sets both "Base currency" and "Profit currency" for the Forex symbols and also preset suitable values for the other symbols.
- Easier deleting of symbols from a Data Source - no more pop-up messages, FSB pro selects the next symbol automatically.
- Internal code cleanup and optimization.
- FSB Pro compiled under a newer version of the programming language - .NET v4.6.1


Some screenshots:

Data download - many symbols available by default. Download 200k bars.

Intrabars testing Whenever it is needed to make testing with intermediate data, the new Data feed service provides excellent coverage of the higher time frames.

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

Excellent!!

Is there something we have to do to extend licensing??

My 'secret' goal is to push EA Studio until I can net 3000 pips per day....

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

Hello Dave,

> Is there something we have to do to extend licensing??

What do you mean?

The new version has to accept your current license without any activities from our side.

Do you have any problems?

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

this shows up in case of processed file

ie  after reoptimizing a collection select a file to further process


"you can save your strategy after purchasing a license  ..................."



On my other copy it comes up with License is Not Valid on the opening screen

My 'secret' goal is to push EA Studio until I can net 3000 pips per day....

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

I'll re-send your license.

Please try to activate it.

Please report if it works.

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

FSB Pro v3.9.2 Beta is released for testing.

A download link is available at the first post.

This release fixes a bug in FSB Pro v3.9.1, which prevents symbols with 5 digits to be visible on the Data Download page.

Now FSB Pro doesn't "remember" the missing files anymore. The program tries now to load a file every time it is necessery. It is no longer needed to cache the failed to load files because the computers are much faster now.

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

FSB Pro v3.9.3 Beta is released for testing.

It comes with Monte Carlo optimized.

Now Monte Carlo is 2-4 times faster and more reliable.
  - The "Randomize data" algorithm is updated (as we did in EA Studio).
  - Added an option "Minimum deviation range" in steps. It guarantees the indicator parameters will have changed values
           when we use the "Randomize indicator parameters" option.

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

FSB Pro v3.9.4 Beta includes all planned features.

I'll release it officially as FSB Pro v4.0 on March 1st if everything is alright.

Please report any issues you may find.

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

Uploaded FSB Pro v3.9.5 RC

This FSB Pro version is future complete. It is compiled in a way it will be published as a final major release.

Changes:
- Internal code cleanup and optimization.
- Removed legacy stuff
- FSB Pro compiled under a newer version of the programming language - .NET v4.6.1

I hope everything will work fine.

Anyway, there are two thin moments to note:
- the requirements of .NET v4.6.1. Windows 10 comes with .NET preinstalled and if it is updated, it will work just out of the box. If you have older Windows, you will need to update it.
- FSB Pro must accept your current license. It works on my test, however, if you see the program asking for a license, please re-enter your current license code.

Please report any issues.

Trade Safe!

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

Nice, I will give it a test as well. Did the use of .NET 4.6.1 lead to a speed-up in strategy generation? Not using intrabar scanning, EA Studio is always much faster than FSB Pro here.

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

Studio will remain much faster because it is a simpler program.

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

> Did the use of .NET 4.6.1 lead to a speed-up in strategy generation?

I expect the same performance.

Footon is perfectly right!

The FSB Pro backtester is overhemigly complex. It is slower than EA Studio but probably it is the only backtester, which provides a "pessimistic" testing scenario.

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

I´ve now finally gotten around to test 3.9.5 RC, thanks for the update! It seems to be working fine, the only error I am getting during startup directly after the update is this:

File name: CandleColor.cs
ERROR: "CandleColor" compilation failed.
     Line 88 Column 45: 'ForexStrategyBuilder.Infrastructure.Interfaces.IInstrumentProperties' does not contain a definition for 'Pip' and no extension method 'Pip' accepting a first argument of type 'ForexStrategyBuilder.Infrastructure.Interfaces.IInstrumentProperties' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?).

I am not sure if this is a custom indicator or a standard one that fails to compile, but just wanted to let you know.

Thanks :-)

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

Hi Popov

1. It is faster
2. No problem to me during startup
3. Do you plan to add BarOpening for closing a position except of BarClosing?

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

I need to fix some minor issues before releasing this version.

GeegTrader, thank you for the report. I'll check it.

GD, "Do you plan to add BarOpening..."
It is complicated.
However, the new Generator I'm creating now will have an FSB Pro export.

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

Hi Popov, I really like the new version but I am noticing a bug.

When I run the generator with 30% OOS, the final result is 0% OOS (all the data), and it resets itself to All Data after it's done.

it doesn't happen every time, but more often than not.

Keep up the good work!

Peace out

Jet

I'll check it.

Thank you for the report!

Re: FSB Pro v3.9 RC

Hi Popov, I want to let you know that I did a total uninstall then re-install of FSB.  Since I did that, I have not seen the OOS problem.  I did that because I started getting a JIT error that I had to keep clicking continue on.  Now everything is working fine after the re-install.
