Thanks for taking the time to do that. I manged to get the equity line to go positive by selecting 'Shortest bar interpolation method'. I'll keep playing around with it.
What do I do with the xml file? How do I load that into FSB?
Playing with the Interpollation method is IMO not a way to find a better/profitable setting.
It just tells FSB how to "invent" the price route inside a bar when no lower timeframe history data is available.
If changing the interpollation method makes the strategy switch from loosing to profitable, then the strategy is crap...
It tells you that the stragtegy is not reliable, because you cannot tell for sure what will happen with real price feed.
FSB is an absolutely fantastic tool to (very) quickly test an idea and see how slightly changing some of the parameters will impact the results.
Optimization WITH OOS (i usually set OOS to 40%) is also very handy to see the "stability" of the strategy.
Improving your "go long on white bar at US close" strat will most probably require the help of some other ingredients...
But at least now you know what to expect from that simple idea.
Writing an MT4 EA just to test this strategy would have required some non-trivial coding time.
Not even talking about coding those additional needed ingredients...
What you can do from here is run the Generator on top of this "foundation", but locking the indicators slots of this strategy and allow the generator to "go get" the ingredients for you...
