Thank you for creating this article, but is there a way to access the functionality of metatrader's genetic optimizer without having to manually do the optimization from the backtesting terminal?
What I'm looking for is a way to optimize an EA on the fly using mql. There has been mention of being able to do this with matlab interaction, but I'm not that familiar with matlab and therefore this would be quite difficult. Any help/recommendations with on the fly optimization would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
