To find suitable strategies parameters use Optimization. To optimize you must specify range and step for every parameter you want to optimize. You can optimize parameters of strategies, that are running on differents symbols and/or time intervals (portfolio optimization). Optimization is done on historical data that are loaded on the chart. Optimization results can be very different on different historical data. Optimized parameters, found on one historical data range must be tested on other data intervals to be shure that they are correct.
Optimization can take a long time depending on the Strategies you choose to optimze, number of parameters and specified parameter ranges.
During optimization process current Target Function value is displayed on the Target Function chart.
Optimization can be stopped at any moment by pressing Stop button. Best parameters found at that moment will be saved.
After performing optimization click on Close button. You will be asked to save or discard optimized parameters.
To optimize analysis techniques parameters
