Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

I installed it and I received error selecting after Multitester  to go to Collections

It says "Object Reference not set to an instance of an object"
After that I uninstalled it.

Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

Wow!  I had no idea what this can do.......

I have set some good criteria  in the Acceptance areas and am getting some nice results....

I have not yet tried to change the currency pairs, however, that will be my next step.

Looks great!

Thanks

Perhaps the new collection could be saved every 5 or 10 minutes - two reasons..... in case of power failure and to be able to have a look at the new file.

Not everyone will experience that error.......

Perhaps you can document it and send it to Popov when it happens again.

The error may relate only to your computer or your files.

Please send him your original collection and the journal and a pic so he can try to reproduce it.

For myself, I have sent him many 'errors' and then realized that something was wrong in my work... he could not reproduce the error.

The problem was fixed.
FSB Pro v3.2.6.1 is attached to the first post.

Most probably the reason was absence of strategy collections in both the Strategies folder and in the Collections page.

Dear Mr.Popov

You are Right

I think this is the reason. Every NEW User does not have high abilities to understand all uses of software. So well done.

It works fine

Thanks a lot

I have been using this software for a long time and still have problems......Not only new users can have difficulty...  just ask Popov about the silly mistakes I have sent...... lol

Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

Wow amazing Popov, it's so fast and I wonder how does the optimising works, i.e. criteria? The usual optimising for 1 strategy take a couple of minutes but this multi tester works so fast!

Another issue, the collection doesn't show which strategies the optimised EA from (which origin).  So if I'm running a collection of 50 or more, I won't know the optimised EA is from which strategy, all I get is strategy no 1, 2, 3, 4. etc.  Is it possible for the FSB to retain the original strategy's name, eg. 201, 150 etc and add a suffix to the original? eg 201(1), etc?

Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

The Multi Tester tool uses the optimizer settings from your last strategy optimization.
To see what is it, open a strategy, go to Optimizer and see the "Settings" panel.

If you see the log the Win / Loss ratio is rising at every optimization. Most probably the Net Balance is not your choice there. 

The Multi Tester documentation is in progress. It will be ready in in two days: Multi Tester.

Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

NOWwwwwwwwwwww  I understand........ thank you!

The tool seems to do an excellent job.......

Have to see what other users think about it and what other modifications they want.

This is pretty exciting!

Perhaps there is a way to restructure how collections are made and saved.

I am wondering if the strategies that are being traded could somehow be added to a collection for bulk optimization.

It would be so convenient to be able to label the strategies within a collection and be able to transfer to another collection.. say like a master collection.

However, that may take a huge amount of coding.

Interesting idea that you have!

Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

Once a strategy is put in a collection, it loses its identity. The Optimizer can make many records in a collection during the optimization of a single strategy.
The standard way for using collections is:
- Run  Generator, Optimizer, Multi Tester to collect strategies in a collection.
- Filter, sort, prune the collection.
- Save the collection for a later use.
- Extract the interesting strategies in separate tabs by double-clicking.
- Manage, save, export the extracted strategies.

If you want to work with particular strategies, you can open them from a folder (by using drag and drop, or multi-select, or by using the Strategy Explorer). Later you can optimize the strategies and review the results. Save All saves all strategies back to the source folder.

Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

Hi Mr. Popov,

Is there a way to increase the number of strategies that fit into a collection from the current limit of 100 ?  I can see myself generating 100's of strategies for a currency pair and then using the Multi tester to cherry pick the best in sample and out of sample performance.

Thanks,

Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

You will find that the collection contains all of the strategies created........ and it sorts them for you giving the top 100 of each type of sort  ie strategy quality, win loss, sharpe. etc

have a look at the pic... I think you will see your answer

Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

If I understand you correctly all strategies are stored in a collection, but you can only bring up the top 100 ?

Thanks

Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

I do not think you understood me.....

Each result is stored in the collection file

You can observe the top one hundred in each category under the drop down opposite 'sorting'. There are 8 categories there, and you can filter those by the metrics below the drop down.......

So you can access most of your worthwhile results by manipulating the sort.

Indeed you may miss a few  but by using the various sorts you will see the best.

Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

Hello traders,

Dave was kind to report me various problems with the Multi Tester.

I'm going to fix them soon.

Till then, if the Multi - Tester stops with an error message, stop it (it will not stop smile .. ) However, you can close the Repository tab and reopen it again. You can find the calculated strategies collected in the Collection page. You'll not loose your work in that way.

Trade Safe!

Hi
Can you make 1 video on this?
The tester has a good idea of Popov super tool.

Thank Pit

Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

I'll make a video for sure, but I'll try to fix the current problem first. You can expect an update on Wednesday.

Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

Hi Popov,

Thank you for your hard work.

This tool is impressive.

I have been playing with it last weekend and here are my comments:

1) It makes the work. After generator, multi tester select the strategies which past the criteria with out of sample data.
2) It is very hard to find a good and sound strategy. Personally  I use the following steps with FSB:
1. Generator
2. Now Multitester (great advance, formerly, on hand!)
3. Montecarlo calculation
OK,
After several hours, I got more than 1 million of strategies with generator. Then Multitester collected 12 (my selection criteria are very hard) but none of then passed the Montecarlo test. So,

My question is:

Is it possible to run Multitester immediately after generator on automatic mode? That's FSB steps 1 + 2.

In this way we could put to work FSB several hours/days and then only performs the final Montecarlo test.

Re: Forex Strategy Builder v3.2.6, with EA Code v31, and Multi Tester

It may be a good idea to do Monte Carlo a few times on each strategy as results can vary due to randomizing the parameters.
