drayzen, I think Marcel’s comment was about focusing on online AlgoWizard. I know FxDreema, it is nice product, although graphic style of connecting blocks doesn’t suit everyone.
I personally prefer defining trading conditins our way.
It is also much simpler to develop a tool when you don’t need to concern yourself with backtesting. Every block we add to SQ or AW has to be implemented also in SQ engine spo that it can be backtested, translated to all supported platforms, and made sure it works the same way in every platform. It is exponentially more work.
We weren’t working only on AlgoWizard, the bigger part actually was the cloud backend that will be the basis of SQ grid functionality, so it will be usable also by normal SQ users in the future.
you probably would want to use EA Wizard, not StrategyQuant. StrategyQuant is a tool for generating strategies, while EA Wizard is a visual editor where you can build your strategy without programming.
Wait a few days, we’ll be releasing an online version of our editor in a few days. If you’ll sign up to our newsletter (in the foter) you’ll be informed when it will be ready.
As for your strategy, it should be possible. Depending on how exactly you define support/resistance, it could be little tricky.
But overall, it should be possible.
Hi Mark, Regarding custom indicator testing…. Looking forward to your advice on how to solve this testing issue. For sure, I have missed something. Best Regards, Yudi
you can see the problem in the video – it shows you an error “File not found”. It means that your file My_MA_14_0.csv was not found in the Test data folder.
Please check it.
interesting idea, but really – what should be the agenda of this meeting? I think there should be some plan on what you want to share / discuss with others.
I can imagine some kind of workshop could be a part of it. We can cover it also officially and be there as a company as well – me, Zdenek, maybe others as well.
It depends on how many people will be really interested in this.
We are located in Prague, which is not far from Germany. Maybe we could make a poll how many people would be interested?
Next date in Roadmap for SQ ?
we are not on holidays :-) but it is true we concentrated on something else – namely online version of AlgoWizard and with it the backend infrastructure that will later be used also by SQ grid.
We will be switching back to SQ desktop development from next week and I assume we’ll release B122 two-three weeks after that.
Is it no longer possible to download 1 minute of data?
why would it not be possible? The only thing that changed is that you select the type of data (tick or minute) when you add new Dukascopy symbol, not at the time of download.
1. what exactly does Autosync do? What do I need it for? Isn’t every strategy in the database that was found by SQX and fits to my specifications displayed automatically?
as hankeys said – strategies you see in databank are kept in memory by default, and they are saved to disc only when you close SQ.
By syncing them to disk you protect yourself in case program crashes.
But be aware that syncing everything to disk will slow down the generation, so it is best to use it not very often, or in custom projects later in the process when you have some strategies that you really don’t want to lose.
2 If I set “No symmetry” in the options “Trading direction”: Does SQ then exclude symmetry completely or does SQ search for strategies with symmetry anyway, but then also for those without symmetry?
if No symmetry is set, then entries for long and short side are generated totally independently of each other.
Maybe I imagined it but in 119 it was possible to download data in a 1min format, right? If yes in 121 only tick data downloads are possible. Am I incorrect?
it is there, but the configuration whether it is minute or tick data was moved to Add symbol dialog. So you have to specify that you want minute data when you create the data.
Can Mark or someone guide me on how to test my custom indicator? I can not find any guide document in https://www.strategyquant.com. Programming guide has been moved to here: https://strategyquant.com/codebase/. Where is the document to test my custom indicator? Thx.
it is described here: https://strategyquant.com/codebase/adding-envelopes-indicator-step-by-step/
Go to section “Testing…”
Hello, when we will publish a manual that is made especially for SQX and does not contain any passages of SQ 3.8.1 (ideally even in several languages)?
we are working on it. I’m sorry it takes so long, but we are finally getting to it
yourrodstaff – I’ll check it again
Thank you, Mark However #property strict is still not there
no, and there is no plan to do this in the near future. I still don’t understand why this should be important. It has no effect on the quality or reliability of strategies.
I’m really glad you were able to extend SQ X with the uncomplete documentation.
note that it includes only the basic classes that you should use in Snippets, not complete classes in all our libraries.
Please let me know if you are missing something.
It would also help me if I can see the kind of extensions you are doing, don’t know if there are some “trade secrets”, don’t you want to share some of your extensions with other users through our Codebase?
If you don’t want to publish it maybe you can send them to me by email – send me a message and I’ll let you know my email address. It would help me understand what you work with and what kind of support you need.

Bug #sq4_4270: The EA generated by ALGOWIZARD after calling custom function does not add custom function code in it. – Fixed
121 version :This BUG has not been completely repaired and the generated code has not added the function’s own code to it.
Please attach the strategy that is not working for you to that task, I’ll check it. It works in my tests.
