New article Applying OLAP in trading (part 3): Analyzing quotes for the development of
trading strategies has been published:
In this article we will continue dealing with the OLAP technology applied to trading. We will expand the functionality presented
in the first two articles. This time we will consider the operational analysis of quotes. We will put forward and test the
hypotheses on trading strategies based on aggregated historical data. The article presents Expert Advisors for studying bar
patterns and adaptive trading.
Here is a brief summary of what was implemented in previous articles (if you haven't read them, it is strongly recommended that you start
with the first two articles). The core was in the OLAPcube.mqh file which contained:
Specific HTML report related fields were implemented in the HTMLcube.mqh files, in which classes of trades from the HTML report
HTMLTradeRecord and the adapter that generates them HTMLReportAdapter are defined.
Similarly, CSVTradeRecord classes of trades from CSV reports and an adapter for them CSVReportAdapter were implemented separately in the
Finally, to simplify OLAP integration with MQL5 programs, the OLAPcore.mqh file was written. It contained the OLAPWrapper wrapper class for
the entire OLAP functionality used in demonstration projects.
Since the new OLAP processing task addresses a new area, we will need to perform refactoring of the existing code and select the parts of it
which are common not only for the trading history but also for quotes or for any data sources.
