Topic: Improvement Idea : Increase collection size please
Could you please kindly give some feedback on the idea to increase the collection size from 100 to perhaps a user defined amount?
I know there are some users who find 100 to be a nice number and it works for them, but the approach I am taking to create some decent strategies needs a larger repository. This is because, I have around 35,000 general trend strategies and I load these into the validator and then test these on different currencies. Very quickly, in some cases, the collection gets filled to 100 (depending on my filter criteria, I can slow this down) and I need to quickly click save, open the naming window, click save again and delete the strats.
I am finding that by the time the collection gets to around 90, I need to start the saving process and I usually miss 10 or so strategies which - since I doing this repetition around 30 - 40 times - could be 500 strategies that I am missing. And since there is a lot of clicking around, this understandably causes a crash or something strange. In addition, I end up with multiple saved files.
What would be much better for me is to define a limit between 100, say, 5000 - and have the collection hold this number. For traders trying this "map to market" approach I think this is a practical way of dealing with the issue, while for traders who wish to leave the system overnight can come back to more than 100 strategies.
A more complicated alternative would be to create a process where the collection saves automatically at 100, resets and starts to fill again until the validator is completed.
What do you think ?
