Данная статья является предпоследней и описывает стыковку графической части программы автооптимизатора с его логической частью. В ней рассматривается процесс запуска и оптимизации, начиная от нажатия кнопки до переадресации менеджеру оптимизаций.
We have previously considered the creation of automatic walk-forward optimization. This time, we will proceed to the internal structure of the auto optimizer tool. The article will be useful for all those who wish to further work with the created project and to modify it, as well as for those who wish to understand the program logic. The current article contains UML diagrams which present the internal structure of the project and the relationships between objects. It also describes the process of optimization start, but it does not contain the description of the optimizer implementation process.
This article provides further description of the walk-forward optimization in the MetaTrader 5 terminal. In previous articles, we considered methods for generating and filtering the optimization report and started analyzing the internal structure of the application responsible for the optimization process. The Auto Optimizer is implemented as a C# application and it has its own graphical interface. The fifth article is devoted to the creation of this graphical interface.
The main purpose of the article is to describe the mechanism of working with our application and its capabilities. Thus the article can be treated as an instruction on how to use the application. It covers all possible pitfalls and specifics of the application usage.
The third part serves as a bridge between the previous two parts: it describes the mechanism of interaction with the DLL considered in the first article and the objects for report downloading, which were described in the second article. We will analyze the process of wrapper creation for a class which is imported from DLL and which forms an XML file with the trading history. We will also consider a method for interacting with this wrapper.
The first article within the Walk-Through Optimization series described the creation of a DLL to be used in our auto optimizer. This continuation is entirely devoted to the MQL5 language.
The first article is devoted to the creation of a toolkit for working with optimization reports, for importing them from the terminal, as well as for filtering and sorting the obtained data. MetaTrader 5 allows downloading optimization results, however our purpose is to add our own data to the optimization report.
This article is a continuation of the previous publication related to the creation of a graphical interface for optimization management. The article considers the logic of the add-on. A wrapper for the MetaTrader 5 terminal will be created: it will enable the running of the add-on as a managed process via C#. In addition, operation with configuration files and setup files is considered in this article. The application logic is divided into two parts: the first one describes the methods called after pressing a particular key, while the second part covers optimization launch and management.
This article describes the process of creating an extension for the MetaTrader terminal. The solution discussed helps to automate the optimization process by running optimizations in other terminals. A few more articles will be written concerning this topic. The extension has been developed using the C# language and design patterns, which additionally demonstrates the ability to expand the terminal capabilities by developing custom modules, as well as the ability to create custom graphical user interfaces using the functionality of a preferred programming language.
HV Models is an Indicator that containes 4 methods for calculating historical volatility of the selected asset. Volatility is one of the fundamental values describing changes in the underlying asset. In statistics, it usualy describes as a standard deviation. The price chart has 4 values (Open High Low Close) when we calculate volatility using a standard indicator, only one of these values is used as a result we get one-sided volatility picture. The presented indicator uses 4 volatility
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).
The article describes custom methods for assessing the trading history. Two classes have been written for downloading and analyzing history. The first of them collects the trading history and represents it as a summary table. The second one deals with statistics: it calculates a number of variables and builds charts for a more efficient evaluation of trading results.
