    Mark,

    I am still traveling  or Cruising  at Sea is the right word. The ones made with 3 timeframes and that do not trade are on 3  different instruments and i did not backtest them but i did look at their entry and exit codes and they looked fine ( really great) to me and thats why i launched them quickly. They were made with Gen EVo  which i restarted with an Autoclicker evry 10 min during a couple of weeks to get around the stopping problem. I also used one of the working RT sessions during generation which i found sort out all bad ones that get errors at retest. I have loaded all indicators in Mt4 for sure. Since about 30 % of the  dual time frame strategies trade pretty good but  the Trippel timeframe do not trade at all i realized that they have one common nominator  and that is that the third timeframe is 4 H  so it might be the old 4H error from SQ3 that are transferred to SQ4. I will not be back home until 24th this month and first then i can backtest them in MT4.

    I have been running alot of SQ4 strategies on Demo accounts probably close to 250 of them for up to 1 month . Very few of them trade. When it comes to tripple timeframe ones no one trades of 140 running. Of the single time and Dual frame maybe 30 % is trading. They are all using market orders and in SQ back test trade evryday so it is clear something is wrong. I am traveling and have no time to upload any strategies for 2 weeks.

    Next release please fix 1. Genetic Evo not stopping. (I reported that for the last 3 betas) . 2. Montecarlo for randomise parameters.( Alternative WFO) Otherwise we have no clue how curvefitted the strategies are. They take alot of trades hughe amount in comparison with SQ3 most is great looking and almost only market orders based but i suspect they are curvfittet since they are to good to be true.

    QA only reads the list of trades can hardly be a bug why should it read some trades and skip others seems hard to program a bug like that.

    As comment to previous excellent poster ,  I have tested above described issue on diffrent computors with the same strategies and the result were that it works on some but not others, go figure. So some of the bugs will effect some users and other will not be effected.

    Do not think it will be possible since the data downloaded is only available in tickdata format so you would still need to download it. However Tick downloader really have double files. First it store the highly compressed files from Duka and then when convert it to 1 min it first unpack the .bi5 tickfiles and then convert it another tickdata formate from which it makes it in to 1 min files which will take more then double space and time. Tickstory convert directly from the .bi5 files to 1 min files without any extra tick.cvs file created. That might require a rework of the conversion engine to fix I suppose.

    Mark,

    Yes i did, however i use tick downloader and i am actually just testing SQ4 and have not used TDS or compared with MT4.  I am currently traveling but the differensers i had was mainly between results after testing in SQ4  On the GMt+2 data the strategies looked just fine but when tested them on the beta7 data they all turned in to shit with to many Ambigous trades etc. Now i applied montecarlo ( the ones that works) during generation at it seems that sort the bad ones out and now the performance looks pretty simular.

    Well i have to add that i also compared with the supplied beta7 data. With the supplied beta 7 data all trades shows up in trade list and i also can view the chart. This does only work with the data supplied with Beta7 and not with any other data i loaded in SQ4 using Tick downloader data. Why this happens i do not understand and it would be good to know how You imported the data in SQ4 so we can get the same result.

    Below is a screen dump of tradelist from using tickdownloader data and the second beta 7 on the same strategies and periods.

    Mark it would be good if this MT4 problem could be solved once and for all for SQ3 and  for SQ4 as well. This is a big problem with the  Mt4 platform and as well impacted by connection issues and shitty VPS shared cores performance. This is a problem indeed and has a direct impact on live trade performance versus back tested performance for the same look back period.

    The new SQ4 Genetic EVO seems very good.  Even after 1 mio radome generated strategies with  really tuf ranking settings it still have not found anything. But it seems when using Genetic EVO it just piles them up :). Very nice indeed.

    SQ4 databanks is missing a configurable choose veiw manager or atleast i can not find were to do this. It is i big deal if you want so sort your strategies for deletion after RT tests.

    Also it seems RT test is not working . For instance if a strategy made 10000 usd in 3000 trades it is unlikely that it does  200000 usd in the next coming 3000 trades at 95% confidence level . Most strategies tested behave like this in RT. Might be that RT gives result on  another contract size who knows. Would be great if RT tests works in beta 8 so we can check the Robustness of the strategies found.

    Mabi has discovered some point: It has to do with the UTC + X. If your data is UTC +0 it match.. when you use UTC +2 as i did evrything bugs out. .1. Charts do not load. 2. tradelists do not load.3. RT tests do not seems to work.4. trade analysis data do not load. and some more but it seems to work fine with UTC+ 0 And i confirm that i dont have a charts with utc+2

    It worked once and now i cant get anything again. It only  loads charts, tradelist and trade analyse data with the 2 years data that comes with SQ4. I guess it is tweeked to work with that . Maybe the data they use  has a bug aswell  so now they tweeked SQ4 to backtest the same as MT4 using faulty data, hehe. Or maybe tick downloader dont work in reality it just fakes download of Dukas data.
