Dear popov
i will start my Questions with an example to clarify my points
iam testing a very simple strategy which is (open trade at the open of I hr bar and close it at the close of the same bar )

1- opening point of the position ( Entry hour ) then i will select an hour lets say 5.00
2- opening logic condition ( open once)
3- closing point of the position( Bar closing)

i want to test that strategy for all Hrs (0:00 ,1:00,2:00,.............23,00) how can i make the generator to test this strategy with out using other indicators , and to test every hr one time with buy and the other time for sell ???

Dear Popov
in the attached picture a balance equity chart for a strategy i made without the generator

and as you see the green and red lines for long and short trades ( the long trades performed better than short trades , am i reading that chart right? ) and if that the case we can use this strategy only for long trades only ( using double lots per each trade) it will gives me better results????

Continue to next post for more questions
Thanx

In the help section ( generator page) i read that we can fine tune our strategy with generator
so i blocked only the ross hook and also uncheck all the options in the generator to make it free find the best system ( is that a right thing when using generator!!)
As you see the result is much more better ( but the drowdown is huge )

So is that the 1st performance indicator for the generator is the balance ? and if so what is the second and therd indicators ( as there importance )?

Thanx

- Entry and Exit points are OK but "Open Once" is not necessary here.
You can set this on 1h chart. Set your Stop Loss and Take Profit and your trade volumes. After that open the generator and lock the slots.

The generator may find a profitable strategy.

After that you can load the strategy in the  Optimizer and include the "Entry Hour" for optimization. In that way the Optimizer may find a better entry hour.

It's not good to trade long only or short only. Your strategy must perform well in both directions.
If you know the trend you can trade in its direction but the problem is what is the trend and when it finishes. It's better to use an indicator that filters the trades in the desired direction.

Some examples:

Moving Averages (150) - The bar opens above the MA.

Moving Averages Crossover (150, 50) - The Fast MA is higher than the Slow MA.
