I have been looking for ways to optimize optimization, and this article intrigues me. How exactly would I go about enabling "genetic optimization?"

Thanks

Nick

Thanks for the great explanation and thorough testing Andrey! Very helpful.

Nick, there is a checkbox in the Strategy Tester when you click "Expert properties" -- it is on the first tab "Testing"
