sorry for the long time of no response, I check into FSB at least once a year and just did it again (I am a StrategyQuant user actually). I have tried FSB Pro 3.5 right now and see that the custom acceptance criteria has not been done yet within the software but would still be needed to be "hacked", is this correct?
I really had the hope it would have been added meanwhile as this is something crucial in my opinion for generation good strategies, at least that´s my finding from the last 8 years in developing trading systems. I much like the system that SQ offers in that relation, in being able to "weight" several acceptance criteria values as the main accept criteria (e.g. net profit, return / dd ratio, equity curve stability) against each other, e.g.: put 70% weight on net profit, 20% weight on return/dd ratio and 10% weight on equity curve stability (R^2) as the final custom weighted acceptance criteria.
Right now I see now way to do that and especially the equity curve stability is a completely missing acceptance criteria (as I would prefer to trade a strategy with 100000 net profit and a R^2 of 0.98 over a strategy with 400000 net profit but a R^2 of just 0.7 - a unstable equity curve), or did I not look hard enough? It would also be great if we would be able to sort the systems by that custom criteria in the repository, but I guess that would automatically happen anyway if that the custom criteria was used as a acceptance criteria?
I am a new buyer for sure as soon as I would be able to work so flexible with the acceptance criterias like I can in SQ, it´s really a "must have" for me.
Thanks a lot for your dedication and great work, so much appreciated.
