The Strategy Normalizer tries to make a strategy tidier and at the same time, it is capable of increasing its performance.
We believe a strategy is better when it has a lower number of components and when their indicators have more meaningful parameters.
The Strategy Normalizer has the same control buttons as the Optimizer. They have the same function as well.
In order to open the Normalizer, simply click on Strategy from the main menu of the program.
In this tab, you can view the values of the indicators that you have set. After that, in the “Normalized” section you can see if there are any changes to them.
The first function of the Normalizer is “Remove Take Profit”. (We don't have “Remove Stop Loss” intentionally because it may make the strategy unsafe.)
Imagine a strategy on EURUSD that has Take Profit of 10 000 pips. It is very unlikely to be hit. So, the Normalizer will try to remove it temporarily and will calculate the strategy performance. It works like this:
