thanks for your workflow! 🙂
I adapted the useful ProfitFactor(IS) >= 1 in the Genetic Options to my workflow. Yes, it takes than longer to get on your amount of strategies, but I think you’re right.
I’m doing the Walk-Forward-Matrix with the winner of the “contest” too, but it’s only for me a statistically element. I will recognize the results but they’re no criteria for me to sort the EA’s out.

Hi Conmariin and Kevin,
itsn´t that fantastic? The three of us are willing to share what we have done so far, are exchanging ideas and recommendations and also have different approaches, which allows to evaluate each other´s setup.
With this, I think we have everything on the table to start to build a new, joint workflow, where we bring in what has been proven to work. And we can leave the theory behind and rather look at the results of the workflow we will be building.
How does that sound to you? Are we going to build a new workflow based on the best results of what we have?
In practical terms what I can imagine is:
– Outline the tasks we want to include in the workflow (on paper still), including all the selection criteria we want to apply.
– Setup the resulting workflow on a VPS, so that we all can see it in action and can manually change if we see the need for it.
– Run selected strategies on a demo account. As part of my Algotrading.de business I´m using a SQL-based workflow which constantly monitors the results from the demo account and calculates stats from the EAs in use. We can use this, too, to compare live results with simulated results.
I have two licenses, too, and can provide a VPS with a running StrategyQuant instance.
Let me know if both of you would be interested to get this thing started. If so, I would start with a proposal for a workflow, which is the combined set of what all of us have shared so far.
I´m very much looking forward to take this big step ahead!
@FireStarZA: you also expressed your willingness to join. What do you think? Can we count on your experience, too?

Sounds like a good plan to me!

Hi Gerhard, Hi Kevin,
I will not continue at this point. Since I am satisfied with my workflows so far and they also produce demonstrably working EAs. So for me everything is good and I don’t see any need for optimization actually.
You are welcome to use my workflow for your work and if you have any questions you can contact me here via the forum. I wish you much success! 🙂

thank you for the frank words! I understand your point of view very well and would make the same decision if I were also at a point where I was satisfied with the results of EA development.
This makes your contribution to our discussion even more valuable, as you help us with your shared workflow to combine it with our ideas and create something better than what we have now. I really appreciate your willingness to share.
So Kevin and I will be working together on a new workflow (and maybe some variants), combining the best of both (or three) worlds and testing, testing, testing….
I’m in the process of setting up a powerful Linux server (12 cores, 60 GB RAM) so we can test thousands of strategies in a reasonable amount of time. I may turn to you with some Linux-related questions, since it’s really difficult to get StrategyQuant running as a JVM on a Linux machine.
So the work on the new workflows will certainly take place outside this forum, but to stay true to the spirit of the start of this thread, I promise to share the results we get with you. We won’t give them to anyone, but we will make them available to anyone willing to put in the effort to get the most out of the fantastic StrategyQuant software.

This is an update for anyone who comes across this thread and is also interested in co-developing/improving workflows with StrateyQuant.
We have built ourselves an environment for intensive testing using a powerful Linux machine. This will allow us to evaluate many different strategies and eventually derive rules for best setting up workflows for results that work in a live environment on a live account.
We will report regularly on the results in this forum, because sharing is everything.
But if you’re already learning the ropes and want to join us, you’re more than welcome. We want to bring together the best SQX brains to create something very powerful: Trading systems that really work!
Post here in the forum if you want to join the army or send me a private message.
We will keep you all updated!

Thanks for sharing your workflows. I’m studying the workflows and don’t have anything to contribute as of feedback at this time.
