Release Notes

Forex Strategy Builder Professional v4.0

Hello Traders,

I'm glad to present you a new major release: FSB Pro v4.0.

New Features:

  • Premium Data Feed - FSB Pro is connected to a new Data Feed server and can load more than 50 symbols with max 200 000 bars.
  • Easy Data import from MT - With FSB Pro v4.0, we can export Json files from MT4 or MT5 and drag and drop the file over FSB Pro. It works the same way as in EA Studio. The best part is that FSB Pro creates the necessary Data Source and Symbol settings. You can use the data export scripts from EA Studio. The scripts are also attached at the end of this post.
  • Import Collection and experts from EA Studio and Express Generator - now we can import Collections and individual Expert Advisors created with EA Studio.
  • Monte Carlo optimized - now Monte Carlo is 2-4 times faster and more reliable.
    • The “Randomize data” algorithm is updated (as we did in EA Studio).
    • Added an option “Minimum deviation range” in steps. It guarantees the indicator parameters will have changed values when we use the “Randomize indicator parameters” option.
  • Automatic exchange rates - Greatly improved the user experience when calculating the Account Exchange Rate. Now FSB Pro loads the exchange rates automatically at every start. We don't need to update them manually for the different symbols and accounts.
  • Added Strategy Properties panel in Generator - now it is possible to change the Strategy Properties from the Generator. It is not necessary to go back to the Editor if you find you need to change the Entry amount or the averaging rules.
  • Added “Min Profit Factor” - now you can use min profit Factor as Acceptance Criteria.

Fixes and improvements

  • Increased the default “Max count of bars” limitation to 200 000 bars.
  • It is unnecessary to set Symbol Type in the Control Panel → Symbols page.
  • Introduced “Profit currency” on the Symbol page. It helps to find the correct Account Exchange Rate.
  • FSB Pro sets both “Base currency” and “Profit currency” for the Forex symbols and preset suitable values for the other symbols.
  • Easier deleting symbols from a Data Source - no more pop-up messages; FSB pro selects the next symbol automatically.
  • Improved the User Experience of the Collection page.
  • Internal code cleanup and optimization.
  • FSB Pro compiled under a newer version of the programming language - .NET v4.8

Hello Traders,

We updated the MQL code of the FSB Pro experts. now it is v51.

Now the experts print a message if an order is cancelled due to an entry-amount below the allowed minimum. Such a condition may happen if you use percentage entry and the calculated amount is below 0.01 lot. You have to increase the initial entry per cent in such a case.

An expert cancels an order in such a case.

Before the update, the expert cancelled such orders silently.

You will have the update automatically after a restart of FSB Pro.
