     StrategyQuant     

My StrategyQuant 
question / issue is:

StrategyQuant is a powerful strategy generation and research tool. It allows you to generate strategies for any market or timeframe using machine learning techniques, it does it automatically and does not require programming skills. The final strategies can be easily saved in formats for MetaTrader, TradeStation, or NinjaTrader.

 

You can use it to find new and unique algo trading systems that can give you competitive advantage (edge) against other traders.

 

StrategyQuant is much more than “just” strategy generator – its powerful research capabilities allow you to test your own trading ideas, run complex strategy robustness tests and analysis of systematic trading strategies.

StrategyQuant X currently supports MetaTrader 4/5, Tradestation and MultiCharts.

We plan to add support for other trading platforms in the future.

StrategyQuant currently supports Microsoft Windows operating system only, the support for Linux and Mac is planned, but it is not our top priority right now.

 

If you wish to run StrategyQuant on any other operating system you can try to use emulator software like Wine (Linux) or Paralells (Mac OS X).

StrategyQuant X was made to be extensible, it is possible to add new indicators, signals or other trading blocks there. 

 

We provide a documentation for it and some examples (https://strategyquant.com/codebase), and we can also code the custom indicator for you to support you as a trader.

 

Just contact us and request your indicator to be implemented – only for full version users, no trials.

We usually provide additional bonuses as “all-in-one” packs.

 

You can download the StrategyQuant gift portfolio of sample strategies in the client portal. EA Wizard bonuses can also be downloaded there.

 

Other bonuses like video courses and other educational material can be provided upon your e-mail request.

StrategyQuant has integrated data download tool that allows you to download high quality tick data for forex (from Dukascopy).

 

If you need futures or stock data you can purchase the data separately using this link https://strategyquant.com/data-subscription

 

You can also import data exported from other source in virtually any text format.

If you need futures or stock data you can purchase the data separately using this link https://strategyquant.com/data-subscription

License is bound to hardware. If there was some change in your PC configuration it is possible that the license has to be reactivated.

 

You can easily reset your license yourself in the Client portal here: (https://strategyquant.com/dashboard-sq/).

 

If the issue persists, please contact us using email or the form below and we will try to solve the problem for you.

 

Also bear in mind there is a limit for number of resets you can do on your own in the client portal.

Each license is bound to a selected PC and can only be moved after the license is reset.
If you need to run the software on another PC we can provide an additional license.

 

We offer one additional Starter license for free for each license purchased so you can work on two computers.
Starter license lacks some features, but you can move your project to the station with Pro version to do necessary tests which are not available with Starter version.

 

If you would like to run Pro version on multiple PC stations do not hesitate to contact us, we can offer you special price conditions for additional licenses.

If you prefer to pay in installments, you can split the payment into 3 months.

More details can be found on StrategyQuant X pricing page https://strategyquant.com/pricing

No, because we offer fully functional trial version of the program, so you can try it before you buy it.

We recommend you to do so before making a purchase.

If you wish to upgrade your Starter license to Pro or Ultimate you can purchase the special upgrade pack.

Please, contact the support for this and we will help you with the upgrade process.

We provide links to download older versions on the bottom of our standard download page: https://strategyquant.com/download

The very minimum would be a dual-core CPU, at least 4GB RAM and Windows 64-bit operating system.

We recommend at least 8 GB RAM, 16-32 GB is optimal even for advanced work. SSD disc is also recommended.

 

SQ can use all your computer power, so more powerful CPU, more cores you have, the better.
But you need to buy a new PC just because of SQ, with proper configuration SQ can run also on slower laptop. In fact at least one of our consistently profitable traders developed his portfolio on a laptop without any problems.

 

That being said – if you plan to upgrade, get at least 16 GB RAM, SSD disc and a decent multi-core processor.

The most probable cause is improper memory configuration, it could happen if SQ uses all the available memory. 

There are two possible reasons:

1. your computer doesn’t have enough memory – for example you have 4 or 8 GB RAM, but you are trying to run complex optimizations and you have too many (thousands) strategies in the databank.
If you have less memory you should configure SQ to keep much less strategies in the databank and use less optimization steps. All these things cost memory.

 

2. SQ wasn’t configured to use all your available RAM – if you have 16 GB RAM or more configure SQ to use all the available memory. By default SQ lets Java determine the max memory usage, but this choice is not optimal if you have a lot of RAM.
You can change memory settings in Configuration (on the top right corner):

Commissions can be set as size-based or percentage-based.

You can set commissions globally in for a symbol in DataManager -> Instruments tab or specifically for in Builder, Retester or Optimizer on the Settings -> Data tab:

StrategyQuant X does not allow the import of MetaTrader indicators.

 

All indicators and building blocks in SQ are coded as snippets in Java language.

 

If you have a full SQ license we can implement the indicator for you or help you with the programming, just contact us.

New blocks and functions can be added as snippets in Java language code.

 

More information with examples on how to add new code into StrategyQuant can be found in our codebase https://strategyquant.com/codebase

 

If you have a full SQ license we can help you with the programming, just contact us.

Backtesting engines in SQ X is extensively tested to exactly match engine of the target trading platform.

 

If your backtest is different then the most probable the reason is different trading options or different data used in both platforms.

 

Please check if you are using the same data and same settings in both programs. If you think you still found a bug you canm open a task for it in our task system: https://roadmap.strategyquant.com and we will investigate it.

          EA Wizard         

My EA Wizard  question / issue is:

EA Wizard is software that allows anybody to create algorithmic strategies (Expert Advisors) for MetaTrader4, quickly, simply, without programming.

 

It is generally a visual editor of strategies that allows you to create your own trading strategy by defining the rules according to which it should trade – all in visual way.

If you have activated the license code before and it stops working you can try to reset it in our client portal (https://strategyquant.com/dashboard-sq/).

This should solve the problem in most cases especially after hardware or OS upgrades or if you move your license to another PC.

If the issue persists, please, do not hesitate to contact us using email or the form below and we will try to solve the problem for you.

Also bear in mind there is a limit for number of resets you can do on your own in the client portal.

We do not provide a trial version for EA Wizard at the moment but you don’t risk anything.

If you’re unhappy with EA Wizard for ANY reason during the first 30 days following purchase then simply e-mail us and we will refund your purchase.

We offer a bonus strategy with EA Wizard purchase. Also there is plenty of examples available in our forum. Our technical support also provides guidance and help when creating strategies.

To manage the process effectively you need to follow the PDF guide installed with EA Wizard.
There is a step-by-step tutorial for doing that.

In many cases such project can be imported but we cannot guarantee 100 % backward compatibility.

In case your project cannot be loaded into SQX it can be easily re-created using AlgoWizard.

    QuantAnalyzer    

My QuantAnalyzer 
question / issue is:

QuantAnalyzer is a powerful tool that allows you to analyze results of your real accounts or backtests and find space for improvement.

It provides detailed statistics of an individual system or portfolio trading performance.

It has many advanced features such as What-If scenarios, Monte Carlo simulations or Potrfolio builder.

You can purchase the full version on this page https://strategyquant.com/quantanalyzer/pricing/.

Once you receive your Pro license you need to open QuantAnalyzer and click menu Help -> About -> Update license.

Insert your license code and update.

If you have activated the license code before and it stops working you can try to reset it in our client portal (https://strategyquant.com/dashboard-sq/).

This should solve the problem in most cases especially after hardware or OS upgrades or if you move your license to another PC.

If the issue persists, please, do not hesitate to contact us using email or the form below and we will try to solve the problem for you.

Also bear in mind there is a limit for number of resets you can do on your own in the client portal.

QuantAnalyzer allows for portfolio trading performance analysis.

First you need to import individual strategies performance report.
Once imported you need to merge all report into a new portfolio report.

Portfolio analysis allows you to evaluate correlations between strategies and allows to find an ideal combination of strategies to achieve the best portfolio performance.

QuantAnalyzer supports also custom data import.

The data has to be in text data format (CSV, TXT).

To setup the QA loader to be able to load a custom data file you need to edit the configuration file for the importer.

Go to \settings\plugins\LoaderGeneralCsv folder and open GeneralCSVImport.ini file.

There you can see available data columns for the import and you can a new format for your trading performance data.

QuantAnalyzer can calculate so called “open balances”.

This allows you to see maximum adverse excursion or maximum favorable excursion (MAE / MFE) for your strategy.

By default QA allows you to see the close-to-close drawdown only.

To make open balances work you need to minute data in text file into the \minute data folder for a specific symbol.

Once the data is present you can restart QA and calculate open balances using Analyze  -> Open balances tab

QuantDataManager

My QuantDataManager question / issue is:

QuantDataManager is a simple tool that can be used to download and manage all your trading data.

it can conveniently download and import data from various sources, store them, transform, export them into another format.

It can also be used to analyze data for gaps and other errors.

High quality tick data for forex and CFDs are provided for free by Dukascopy and by several other providers, for exmaple Darwinex.

QDM downloads these data more conveniently, and – in case of Pro version – also much faster.

The data downloaded in Pro version are the same as in Free version, but they are additionally verified by our specialists and they are downloaded from our own CDN data servers.

Thanks to this we can provide 10-15x faster download using the CDN network.

CDN network is not cheap and that is the reason why we have to charge for the Pro version.

Also, there are no  advertisements in the Pro version.

You can purchase the full version on this page https://strategyquant.com/quantdatamanager

Once you receive your Pro license you need to open QuantDataManger and click the link in footer -> Update your license.

Insert your license code and update.

QuantDataManager now allows you to export special FXT & HST files for MetaTrader 4 that allow you to test your strategies in MT4 with the highest possible modeling quality.

We published a tuorial for this in our knowledgebase https://strategyquant.com/doc-category/quantdatamanager
