About NeuroPro

The NeuroPro program was written in one of Russian institutes back in 1998 and is still relevant today.

It efficiently runs on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. I cannot tell how it works on later versions of Windows as I have not tested it.

About NeuroPro

Fig. 1. About NeuroPro

Version 0.25 is free and can be found on many websites on the Internet. NeuroPro can create multilayer neural networks with the sigmoid activation function. If you have just started learning neural networks, you do not need more features at this stage. It should be kept in mind that the interface of NeuroPro is in Russian and has not been translated into any other languages.

Neural network can be trained on one data array and then tested on another one. It is an essential feature for traders as it allows to understand quickly if the selected network structure is prone to overfitting and if it can consistently trade outside historical data, i.e. on a real account.

Those who like to dig deeper have an opportunity to see neural network weights as well as which network inputs influence the result of network operation most of all. Beginners do not need that and they may skip this part of the program. This information is useful for experienced traders looking for the Grail because it lets them assume what pattern was identified by the neural network and see where they can continue their search.

Other than that, there are no significant features in NeuroPro except various settings and useful utilities like minimizer of the network structure. These menu sections are not compulsory to use so novices do not have to complicate things and use only the default settings.

From a trader's point of view, NeuroPro has only one disadvantage - absence of integration with MetaTrader 5. Actually, this article is mostly dedicated to loading market and indicator data from MetaTrader 5 to NeuroPro and then turn the received neural network into an Expert in MQL5.

Advancing the topic, I can say that the neural network that we are going to create with NeuroPro will be converted with all the neuron weights into an MQL5 script (unlike the system of include DLL like in any other neural network program). It will ensure fast work and minimum use of computer resources. That is a clear advantage of using NeuroPro. It can be used for creating any trading strategies, even scalping ones with their requirement for the Expert to make decisions nearly immediately.


Trading Strategy

In this article we are not going to consider scalping because the process of creating, training and testing scalping Experts has a lot of peculiarities and goes beyond this article.

For educational purposes we shall create a simple Expert for the H1 timeframe and popular currency pair EURUSD. So, let our Expert analyze last 24 bars i.e. market behavior in the last day, forecast the direction of the price movement in the following hour and then trade based on that information.


How to Load Data to NeuroPro from MetaTrader

Supported Data Format

NeuroPro reads data only in the DBMS formats (tables DBMS Paradox) and DBF (tables DBMS FoxPro and dBase). DBF is the most common format in the world and if you are an experienced programmer, you must have come across it many times. We are going to use this format too.

Algorithm of the data transfer in NeuroPro looks as follows:

  1. write a script for MetaTrader, load required data to a text file in the CSV format dividing data with commas;
  2. using special programs, convert CSV into DBF;
  3. open DBF in NeuroPro.

Loading Data from MetaTrader

When writing a loading data script, some nuances should be taken into account:

  • a data field name in DBF cannot be longer than 11 symbols, besides some converters cut them down to 10. That is why field names should not be longer than 10 symbols;
  • in neural networks with a great number of bars input, field names are usually of the "BarN" type, where N is a sequential number of the bar. In our case there will be 24 fields and the names consequently will vary from "Bar1" to "Bar24". I recommend, though it is not compulsory, to write names of such fields like "Bar___N__" (at first three underscores and then two). Further down the line, when we are writing the Expert, you will see why.

Below is a ready script for our testing strategy (it is also attached to this article):

#property script_show_inputs
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
input string    Export_FileName  = "NeuroPro\\data.csv"; // File for export (in the "MQL5/Files" folder)
input int       Export_Bars_Skip = 0;                    // Number of historical bars to skip before export
input int       Export_Bars      = 5000;                 // Number of lines for export
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
const int inputlen=24;    // Number of past bars analyzed by the trading strategy
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
void OnStart()
  {
   //--- create a file
   int file=FileOpen(Export_FileName,FILE_WRITE|FILE_CSV|FILE_ANSI,',');

   if(file!=INVALID_HANDLE)
     {
      //--- write the data header
      string row="date";
      for(int i=0; i<=inputlen; i++)
        {
         if(StringLen(row)) row+=",";
         //========================================================
         // Note! 
         // In the Expert substitute underscores for [].
         // A field name in the DBase format is no longer than 11 symbols. Calc reduces it down to 10.
         // Maximum number of fields in the DBase format is 128-512, depending on the version.
         //========================================================
         StringConcatenate(row,row,"Bar___",i,"__");
        }
      FileWrite(file,row);

      //--- copy required data from history
      MqlRates rates[],rate;
      int count=Export_Bars+inputlen;
      if(CopyRates(Symbol(),Period(),1+Export_Bars_Skip,count,rates)<count)
        {
         Print("Error! Insufficient historical data for exporting required data.");
         return;
        }
      ArraySetAsSeries(rates,true);

      //--- write down the data      
      for(int bar=0; bar<Export_Bars; bar++)
        {
         row="";
         //--- closing price of the 1st bar will be the zero level for normalization of others
         double zlevel=rates[bar+1].close; 
         for(int i=0; i<=inputlen; i++)
           {
            if(StringLen(row)) row+=",";
            rate=rates[bar+i];
            if(i==0) row+=TimeToString(rate.time,TIME_DATE || TIME_MINUTES)+",";
            row+=DoubleToString(rate.close-zlevel,Digits());
           }
         FileWrite(file,row);
        }
      FileClose(file);
      Print("Data export successfully completed.");
     }
   else Print("Error! Failed to create a file for data export. ",GetLastError());
  }

Now let us launch it in the terminal. Upon successful completion, it will enter a correspondent message to the Expert journal.

Data file created by the script contains approximately the following.

In the first string there are names of the table fields; then follow the strings with the values of those fields divided by commas:

date,Bar___0__,Bar___1__,Bar___2__,Bar___3__,Bar___4__,Bar___5__,Bar___6__,Bar___7__,Bar___8__,Bar___9__,Bar___10__,Bar___11__,Bar___12__,Bar___13__,Bar___14__,Bar___15__,Bar___16__,Bar___17__,Bar___18__,Bar___19__,Bar___20__,Bar___21__,Bar___22__,Bar___23__,Bar___24__

Conversion from CSV to DBF

There are many ways of doing it.

  • Microsoft Excel, versions earlier than 2007. It can open CSV files and also save data in the DBF format. Bear in mind that very old versions of Excel accommodate only 65535 strings. Saying that, this capacity is usually sufficient for trading as this volume can fit a 10 years' history of the H1 timeframe;
  • Microsoft Excel, versions of 2007 and later. Saving in DBF is not available in them. An add-on enriching Excel with this functionality can be found on the Internet;
  • Microsoft Access (Microsoft Office package program for working with data bases). A table can be created in a data base by importing from a text file (CSV) and then exporting it to a DBF one;
  • designated utilities-converters CSV-DBF. There are a lot of them and different makes can be found on the Internet, though majority of them have to be paid for;
  • Calc from the free OpenOffice package. Calc is nearly a full analogue of Excel. It can open CSV files and save them in DBF.

All the above methods are intuitive and should be easy enough to use.

I will perform conversion in one of the listed ways. I will use the last one because NeuroPro is a free program and the idea behind free Calc is the closest to it. You can download OpenOffice from the official web site - http://www.openoffice.org/.

Process of conversion.

  1. Start Calc. Open our data file with the CSV extension.
  2. Calc will launch data recognition wizard.
  3. Specify in the wizard parameters that the fields are to be separated by commas.

Another important point here is a separator of the integer and fractional parts of the number. As per configurations on my computer ("START" > "Control Panel" > "Language and Regional Standards"), dot is used as a separator. In our CSV file we also use dot. For Calc to read numbers correctly, a separator has to be specified too. It can be done by selecting the required language in the settings of the conversion wizard. Select one of the variations of the English language as dot is a standard separator there.

Correct settings of the wizard are shown on the screenshot:

 

Fig. 2. Setup of the import wizard from the CSV file


Tip: to skip selecting a language at every CSV file conversion, it can be set up as a default language in the Calc settings: menu "Tools" > "Options" and then as highlighted in green on the screenshot:



Fig. 3. Locale setup in Calc


4) So, the CSV file has uploaded and the data is automatically put into columns:



Fig. 4. Successfully opened CSV file


5) For the data to be correctly written in the DBF format their type and precision have to be specified.

For that all the columns with numbers are to be highlighted and correspondent properties assigned as highlighted in green on the screenshot:


 

Fig. 5. Setting up columns with numbers


6) Save in DBF: menu "File" > "Save As". In the dialog window select the file type "dBase (*.dbf)":


Fig. 6. Dialog of saving a file in the DBF format


Then press "Save".

7) Calc will ask to confirm selected format:



Fig. 7. Calc suggests saving a file in the standard ODF format instead of DBF


Confirm our choice by pressing the "Keep Current Format" button.

8) Calc will inquire what coding to use for text data in the DBF file. Since there is no such data in our example and text data is impossible to use in neural networks anyway, you can specify any:


Fig. 8. Selecting text coding of the file


Now we have a file with the DBF extension that contains data received from MetaTrader required for the neural network.


How to Create and Train a Neural Network in NeuroPro

1) Start NeuroPro.

2) Create a working project: menu "File" > "Create":

Fig. 9. Empty project created 


3) In the project window press the "Open data file" button and open the DBF file in the appeared dialog:


Fig. 10. The DBF file opened for using with the future neural network


4) In the project window click on "New network". In the opened window there are two tabs. We are going to fill the "Inputs and outputs" tab first.

Specify in the "Bar___0__" field that it will be the output neuron of the network. The rest of the fields "Bar___N__" will be appointed to be inputs:


Fig. 11. Configuration of the inputs and outputs of the neural network 


We can also specify the required accuracy for the output neuron. In Forex it is 1 point i.e. in our case it is 0.0001.

5) Now we are moving on to the "Network Structure" tab. Here the number of intermediate layers (excluding input and output layers) and the number of neurons in each of them can be specified. In this particular learning example we are going to create 3 layers each containing 20 neurons:


Fig. 12. Configuration of the neural network layers


6) Press the "Create" button and the network is ready to use:

Fig. 13. A newly made and setup neural network appeared in the project


7) Go to the "Neural Network" menu > "Testing", to see how a new and untrained network is coping with producing price forecasts.

As test results showed, this untrained neural network predicted a price with a specified accuracy (with error not exceeding 1 point) in less than 5% cases. On average, a price forecast error was around 10 points:

Fig. 14. Statistics of forecast accuracy of untrained neural network


8) Now we have to train the network based on our data.

Again, go to the project window and press: "Neural network" > "Training" in the menu. An indicator of learning progress will appear. Wait for the end of the process:

Fig. 15. Indicator of the learning process of the neural network

9) Get back to the project window and go to "Neural network" > "Testing".

The network has significantly improved: its price forecast was accurate in 16% cases, and the average forecast error was 4 points:

Fig. 16. Statistics of forecast accuracy of a trained network

The network has learned a few things. We shall transfer it to MetaTrader.

How to Transfer a Neural Network from NeuroPro to MetaTrader 5

NeuroPro knows nothing about MetaTrader 5 and cannot pass a neural network directly to it. I have worked out a semi-automatic way of converting a neural network into a fragment of MQL5 code.

Unlike many other neural network programs, NeuroPro can show the structure of the neural network in use as a text. It is a set of formulas sequentially describing all the data transformations from the input moment till it leaves the network. Formulas include every layer, every neuron, every connection with already substituted (trained) connection weight values.

To see it, go to the "Neural network" > "Verbalization" menu. In our case the formulas are as follows:

Fig. 17. Formulas determining the work of the trained neural network

Actually, the set of these formulas can be considered as a source code of a program written in an abstract programming language. All we need to do is to modify this code so its syntax matches MQL5. These changes can be made in any text editor. To partially automate this process, I recommend using an editor that can perform a mass replacement of phrases. It can be done in: Word, its free version Writer (from the OpenOffice package), Excel, Calc and even Notepad in Windows.

I am sure you could change those formulas into an MQL5 code yourself, nevertheless I am going to share my experience in optimizing this process so you can do it quicker.

In my example I am going to use Notepad in Windows 7.

1) So, we have an open project in NeuroPro with the trained neural network. We go to "Neural network" > "Verbalization", where a window with formulas opened (see the screenshot above).

2) Save the content of this window in the: menu "File" > "Save as".

3) Now open this file in Notepad.

4) Call the phrase replacement function: menu "Edit" > "Replace".

List of replacements to be done:

 What to replaceReplace with
Comment
___[
triple underscore
__
]
double underscore
--
- -
two minuses (deduction of a negative number in formulas) are divided by a space because a double minus in MQL (as well as other languages similar to C) can have a double meaning, which leads to a compilation error
 SigmoidSigmoid
translate function names into Latin (mind you, the program is in Russian. There is no necessity to do it though because MetaEditor supports Cyrillic too)
 SyndromSyndrome
translate variable names into Latin (again, there is no point to do it as MetaEditor supports Cyrillic too)

Fig. 18. Replace triple underscore with square brackets

Use the "Replace All" button to perform replacement.

Now you understand that I called the price fields "BAR___N__" to be able to quickly substitute underscores for square brackets, i.e. present all network inputs as an array.

It is easier to declare an array and fill it with serial price data than a number of individual variables.


5) As I mentioned before, enumeration of all inputs and outputs has to be changed for declaring an array:

Before
After

Data base fields (initial symptoms):

       BAR[1]

       BAR[2]

       BAR[3]

       BAR[4]

       BAR[5]

       BAR[6]

       BAR[7]

       BAR[8]

       BAR[9]

       BAR[10]

       BAR[11]

       BAR[12]

       BAR[13]

       BAR[14]

       BAR[15]

       BAR[16]

       BAR[17]

       BAR[18]

       BAR[19]

       BAR[20]

       BAR[21]

       BAR[22]

       BAR[23]

       BAR[24]

 

Data base fields (final syndromes):

       BAR[0]

double BAR [25];


6) Neuron activation functions must look like MQL5 program functions:

Before
After

Sigmoid1(A)=A/(0.1+|A|)

Sigmoid2(A)=A/(0.1+|A|)

Sigmoid3(A)=A/(0.1+|A|)

double Sigmoid1 (double A)
{
  return A/(0.1 + MathAbs(A));
}

double Sigmoid2 (double A)
{
  return A/(0.1 + MathAbs(A));
}

double Sigmoid3 (double A)
{
  return A/(0.1 + MathAbs(A));
}

7) According to the MQL5 rules, a semicolon must be put in the end of all formulas, comments have to be written correctly (or deleted) and type declaration added to all initialized variables.

In our case, the type has not been declared only for the neuron names in the intermediary layers. We are going to use mass text replacement again instead of inputting the word "double" manually for 60 times. We need to highlight the beginning of a string with a neuron name (the margin in the beginning of the string has to be highlighted too because neuron names will be also used in the right part of the formulas and the word "double" will not need to be inserted there) :

Fig. 19. Highlighting the text for replacement

Having copied the highlighted part of the text, insert it in the text replacement dialog to replace with the same text and the word "double" added to it:

Fig. 20. Add the type name to the variables


Don't forget to press the "Replace all" button.


8) NeuroPro has a little bug. If you input a constant value to the neural network, then in the text format the normalization formula of this input will contain dividing by zero. In our case "BAR___1__" is such an input. It always has zeros because it is the reference point for our bars normalizing.

Ideally, "BAR___1__" should not be input in the neural network as inputs with constant values do not influence the forecast anyway. However, if that value was input, the formula produced by NeuroPro will have to be adjusted. To avoid error messages from the compiler, the "BAR___1__" will have to be replaced with the value that is permanently input here. In our case it is zero:

Before
After
BAR[1]=(BAR[1]-0)/0;
BAR[1]=0;


9) There is another very insignificant bug (the developer of NeuroPro did not think that a text description of a neural network would be used as a program code and therefore did not check it carefully).

In the very last formula in the end there is an extra closing parenthesis. This bug is very small but it confuses the MetaEditor compiler. It won't point at the extra parenthesis in that string but will not take a curly bracket in another part of the program. Please bear it in mind so you can rectify it when come across.

Before
After
BAR[0]=((BAR[0]*0.0180000001564622)+0.000599999912083149)/2);
BAR[0]=((BAR[0]*0.0180000001564622)+0.000599999912083149)/2;

Operations described in this section take only a few minutes if practiced regularly. There is no need to remember the list to the letter. At the following compilation MetaEditor will point the uncorrected parts of code as errors.

Finally, after bringing all formulas into the MQL5 format, all we need to do is to transfer the resulting code from the Notepad to MetaEditor and add the rest of the code required for the Expert. Surely, if you regularly use neural networks created in NeuroPro, this stage will be easy. You will simply replace the previous neural network in the existing Expert with a new MQL5 code of a neural network from the Notepad. It will literally take a minute.

The final code of the Expert, completely ready for work in MetaTrader 5 (you can also download this code from the application to this article):

input double    Lots = 0.1;        // Deal volume
input double    MinPrognosis = 0;  // Open deals with a forecast more promising than the current one
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
const int inputlen=24; // Number of past bars analyzed by the trading strategy

There is no point to enter a deal when a forecast profit is a value comparable with the spread. The Expert has a built-in filter for such a case. Set the input parameter MinPrognosis at 0.0005.

The constant trade volume is 0.1 lot.

We received the following results:

Constantly growing equity shows that all the stages of developing a neural network Expert were implemented correctly.

It should be kept in mind that profit on a period of time when the Expert was learning does not guarantee profit outside of that. Creating real profitable neural network Experts requires in-depth knowledge of the neural network operational principle and significant experience in trading. In this article I showed how to use a neural network tool and now it is up to you to make it efficient.


Conclusion

NeuroPro is a unique program. We had an opportunity to see that a neural network can be carried over from NeuroPro to the MetaTrader 5 Expert in minutes using only tools at hand.

A lot of other neural network programs do not have this advantage. That is why NeuroPro is highly recommended.

Excellent work Robert. I've not had very much to do with Neural Nets but have done some fairly basic AI work in the past. So not sure how much use I could be on that side of things but glad to help out with any MQL that is needed.

Cheers

Hi all,

I am studying the great article by Andrew on using NeuroPro with MT5 recently posted on the MT5 forum.

Neural Networks Cheap and Cheerful - Link NeuroPro with MetaTrader 5
www.mql5.com/en/articles/830

I understand most of what's happening but I do not speak/read Russian and I don't have a Cyrillic keyboard to try and search and translate it into English..

So I need help understanding some of the Russian words on the NeuroPro input screens..

I also would like to learn how specifically NeuroPro calculates it's Outputs that are cut and pasted into the MT5 EA.

If anyone can help interpret the Russian words in the attached photos...that would be very appreciated...

And if you can help us understand what the formulas are to calculate the Semaphores...

And especially if you understand how those formulas were derived...that would be even better.

Thanks in advance for your help,
Robert

I don't know what experience others have been having with downloading NeuroPro 0.25 (in a zip file), but I found it on a Russian language only site using a search engine, but when I tried running the setup program within it, it told me I didn't have the proper version of windows.  After checking that site through an online translation site (alot of copying and pasting), it appears that it doesn't like Windows Vista, and the preferred versions are Windows 3.10 (remember that?) and 95.  I have also found the Neuroph program, hopefully it will be able to work with MT4 and 5, and MQL as well.

Hi JD4,

I had the same problems with NeuroPro (getting it translated)...so I kept looking and found Neuroph...which looks very similar to NeuroPro.

I also found another great free neural net program called Encog...

Both were great places for beginners (like me) to learn neural nets...and both work fine with Windows 8

Neuroph was good to learn the basics...and has a great GUI that helps a lot...but it's a little limited for real applications.

It has no print out of it's weights and thresholds to use for indicators or EA's.

Someone with basic Java coding could probably easily make these functions...and then fairly easily connect them to MT4.

Encog was the next step up in neural net power...and while the GUI is a little more complex...

It has a built-in function that you can actually make Encog predictive indicators immediately for MT4...

As a beginner I was amazed to have actually made my own MT4 neural net predictive indicators using Encog...! Big steps forward in my learning...!

Haven't tested them extensively yet to see how accurate they are...but it's a great start for me in this exciting field of AI and neural nets...

The only downside was the limited support with no active forums...so you have to be persistent in your efforts.

I'm now looking at Deep Learning systems as well now...but will continue to play with Neuroph and Encog to learn more.

I definitely recommend both (free) programs to starting learning how to use neural nets.

Free tools to learn exciting new neural net skills...can't beat the price...!

Thanks for sharing,

Robert

This is one of the best examples of a nice curve fitting approach.
Step on New Rails: Custom Indicators in MQL5 Step on New Rails: Custom Indicators in MQL5

I will not list all of the new possibilities and features of the new terminal and language. They are numerous, and some novelties are worth the discussion in a separate article. Also there is no code here, written with object-oriented programming, it is a too serous topic to be simply mentioned in a context as additional advantages for developers. In this article we will consider the indicators, their structure, drawing, types and their programming details, as compared to MQL4. I hope that this article will be useful both for beginners and experienced developers, maybe some of them will find something new.

Here Comes the New MetaTrader 5 and MQL5 Here Comes the New MetaTrader 5 and MQL5

This is just a brief review of MetaTrader 5. I can't describe all the system's new features for such a short time period - the testing started on 2009.09.09. This is a symbolical date, and I am sure it will be a lucky number. A few days have passed since I got the beta version of the MetaTrader 5 terminal and MQL5. I haven't managed to try all its features, but I am already impressed.

False trigger protection for Trading Robot False trigger protection for Trading Robot

Profitability of trading systems is defined not only by logic and precision of analyzing the financial instrument dynamics, but also by the quality of the performance algorithm of this logic. False trigger is typical for low quality performance of the main logic of a trading robot. Ways of solving the specified problem are considered in this article.

Using text files for storing input parameters of Expert Advisors, indicators and scripts Using text files for storing input parameters of Expert Advisors, indicators and scripts

The article describes the application of text files for storing dynamic objects, arrays and other variables used as properties of Expert Advisors, indicators and scripts. The files serve as a convenient addition to the functionality of standard tools offered by MQL languages.
