Hi there, I am in my second day of the demo phase with StrategyQuant and glad to find this interesting aproach. My question is, how long the calculations take on average. I started a simple MA crossover strategy build yesterday evening but, mostly with standard setting, using a reasonable fast win10 machine (16 GB ram, i5 processor). The calculations are still ongoing (more than 12 hours now). I cannot find a clock or something informing how long it will last. I used the fastest method of data input (bar I guess). Could you help me with your experiences or hints?
Thanks alot in advance,
there is no “minimal required time” defined in advance. You never know how much time SQ will need to find a viable strategy. Make sure you do setup ranking options (rules to dismiss strategy) correctly. Sometimes it happens users set it incorrectly and dismiss even good strategies. Also avoid being too strict with dismissing rules. Waiting for the “very best” strategy can take really long. The thing is that strategy does not have to have a “perfect curve” to perform good in a long run
Yes it is still valid for version SQ3. In our client portal https://strategyquant.com/wp-login.php there is also Zdenek’s ebook available for SQ users
