Topic: Output of very similar strategies in a row
Hi Mr. Popov,
since I have set the auto-saving feature to save all "1" strategies (so each JSON file holds a single strategy), I have noticed that Express Generator sometimes outputs files in batches at the very same time with strategies that have just slightly different rules and almost the exact same stats.
By the dates/time of the file names, we can see that the strategies have been saved at the same minute, and looking at the content of the JSON files, the logic is almost precisely the same, except for some variation in the exit indicators, but still resulting in nearly the same strategy statistics (return/drawdown, r-squared, etc.).
Is this intended behavior? Is Express Generator quickly trying deviations of the strategy when it found a strategy that passes the acceptance criteria to see if it can "quickly" improve it with some other exit indicators? I am just wondering, because this happens almost all the time that I am getting strategies with almost the same content saved at the same minute, this can´t just be random but most likely is a hidden feature of Express Generator?
Thanks for clarifying and your great work :-)
