I understand the infinite number of generated strategies but this is solely for the purpose of uploading a portfolio to review and just have some organised way to view the strategies based on there already assigned 3 digit magic number from when the portfolio was first exported.
I posted several times already that I'll make sometimes better Portfolio Editor. However, this is not an urgent problem. It is also a functionality that deviates from the idea of EA Studio. Think for example for Photoshop and for Google drive. The one helps you to generate images and the other to store them. Photoshop has no features of storing renaming or identifying images. This is also not a problem with EA Studio. Even the Portfolio Expert suits better for another separate application.
EA Studio must provide the best strategy generator, robustness testing and backtest analysis. The Portfolio Expert is a side effect of the possibility to generate and combine strategies. A third party application can do that perfectly. If one wants to develop such application I'll help with ideas.
Maybe for a little step forward, allow users to re-import strategies from Portfolio via validator, even if the strategies are not profitable. Currently the validator automatically eliminates strategies that are unprofitable (which is weird because I used the same data to generate profitable strategies but when I re-import back using the same data the validator somehow calculates (using the same generated data) the strategies as unprofitable, which make it very frustrating for me because I want to re-use these strategies as preset. Kindly remove any automatic embeded criteria that the strategies need to be profitable in order to be ascended to the collection. I'll be very much appreciated if this can be done.
This would also provide the solution for people who wants to re-import unprofitable strategies back to re-examine them to see why some strategies fail and why some strategies succeeded. Though it can be re-imported back 1 strategy at a time in order to track which strategy you are examining, though some wished to re-import the Portfolio back with it's magic number intack but given some creativity and flexibility, we can still try to re-import individual unprofitable strategies back by one by one via "Import an Expert Advisor back" function.
But as for me, I need the validator to re-import back hundreds of my old profitable Strategies (using various data sources) back via validator so that I re-compile them as 1 Portfolio Expert. And because i'm using various data sources in the past to generate these strategies, the Validator deem some of these strategies as unprofitable using the current/selected data source.
If EA studio Validator allows us to ascend unprofitable strategies to the collection, then If anyone wants to view why strategies fail, go to the Meta Editor and delete all the profitable EA's magic number (starting in line 635 somewhere there, if I remembered correctly) and leave those unprofitable EA magic behind and re-import back, then they can view the whole list of unprofitable strategies and examine them why they fail and compare with those that succeed.
