New article 100 best optimization passes (part 1). Developing optimization analyzer has been published:
The article dwells on the development of an application for selecting the best optimization passes using several possible options. The application is able to sort out the optimization results by a variety of factors. Optimization passes are always written to a database, therefore you can always select new robot parameters without re-optimization. Besides, you are able to see all optimization passes on a single chart, calculate parametric VaR ratios and build the graph of the normal distribution of passes and trading results of a certain ratio set. Besides, the graphs of some calculated ratios are built dynamically beginning with the optimization start (or from a selected date to another selected date).
Modern technology has now become so deeply ingrained into the field
of financial trading that it is now almost impossible to imagine how we
could do without it. Nevertheless, just a very short while ago, trading
was conducted manually and there was a complex system of hand language
(quickly heading into oblivion nowadays) describing how much asset to
buy or sell.
Personal computers rapidly superseded traditional trading methods
by bringing online trading literally into our homes. Now we can look at
asset quotes in real time and make appropriate decisions. Moreover, the
advent of online technologies in the market industry causes the ranks of
manual traders to dwindle at an increasing speed. Now, more than half
of the deals are made by trading algorithms, and it is worth to say that
MetaTrader 5 is number one among the most convenient terminals for
But despite all the advantages of this platform, it has a number of
drawbacks I tried to mitigate with the application described here. The
article describes developing the program written entirely in MQL5 using
library designed to improve selection of trading algorithm optimization
parameters. It also adds new features to the analysis of retrospective
trading and general EA assessment.
