    Hello,

    Can I load an MQL4 file in SQX and run it through “Retester” to test robustness and optimize settings?

    Is there any utility program that convert MQL4 file to .sqx?

     

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    no you cannot import MQL code but you can build your strategy from scratch using AlgoWizard. Then you will have fully-functional strategy that can be optimized and tested

    Actually, I had the same type of question.  SQ is selling QuantAnalyzer and it looks identical to all the functions in SQX.  So, why couldn’t we load a ex4 into SQX for back testing if QuantAnalyzer accepts ex4 files?

    QuantAnalyzer and SQX are totally different apps – quantanalyzer is mostly used for building portfolios and SQX is for building the strategies

    you can really load EX4 files somewhere? EX4 is compiled MQL4 and its not the open code, from where you can read something of the logic of the strategies – and imagination, that there will be some app where i could load MQL4 files is nonsense

    Thanks.  I downloaded quantanalyzer and can see you cannot load ex4 files.  I was just wondering if there was another method of testing EA’s outside of MT4.

    Hi,

    as for custom indicators, there are few options here to add new indicators:

    1) You can either code it using Java according to our codebase example here https://strategyquant.com/codebase
    2) Or you can upload just the indicator data into SQX that will be used to evaluate signals as shown here https://strategyquant.com/doc/strategyquant/external-indicators/

    The other option is less beneficial because you upload final data that are based on certain indicator setting. If you change the indicator’s setting you need to upload new data. So for custom indicators it is much better to use the option #1 in SQX
