New article Using OpenCL to test candlestick patterns has been published:
The article describes the algorithm for implementing the OpenCL candlestick patterns tester in the "1 minute OHLC" mode. We will also compare its speed with the built-in strategy tester launched in the fast and slow optimization modes.
We need to rely on something to make sure that the implementation of
the tester on OpenCL works correctly. First, we will develop an MQL5 EA.
Then we will compare its results of testing and optimizing using a
regular tester with the ones obtained by the OpenCL tester.
The strategy is simple:
The presence of the pattern is to be checked on fully closed
bars. In other words, we search for a pattern on three previous bars as
soon as a new one appears.
Pattern detection conditions are as follows:
