    And the Pricing and Lizense Model have changed.

     

    I noticed and I think it is about time the SQ company gets paid what it deserves.

    Hello, in SQX you should be able to create your strategy using AlgoWizard, test for robustness and improve. Please standby until it is released next week

     

    I think he may mean SQ functionality added that allows a trader to upload a list of trades into SQX.  The trade could then do a variety of things such as checking to see to which SQX indicators can boost performance to the manual trades.

     

    I could be wrong but I think this is a great idea.

    Very good 

    some of my portfolios can be seen her https://www.mql5.com/en/signals/author/hankeys https://www.darwinex.com/username/hankeys

     

    Very good .  Very good indeed.

     

    Just so you’re aware it states “80% of growth achieved within 2 days. ”  If that itn’t the case you might want to contact MQL5 customer support because it will be off-putting to potential subscribers.

    The SQ dev’ team have offered to convert MT4 indicators for free for a limited period:

    Hi, MT4’s strategy tester has an option for a custom optimized parameter. The optimization criterion here is the value of the OnTester() function in the Expert Advisor. Can EA Wizard code this?

     

    Hi,

     

    Go to x:\EAWizard\code

     

    then open CustomCode and write the OnTester() code there.  It should then appear in all EA produced by EAWizard.

    I must say, that if you dont use pivots and exit rule in building blocks…

    Do you use the Volume building blocks?

    In your position I would add a dummy EURUSD pair, download tick data from 2014 and import into the new EURUSD pair then compare the number of trades from 2014 using the dummy EURUSD and compare it to your standard EURUSD data.

    Marcel, just restaring SQ should be enough , then go to CodeEditor and compile it again. If you still see this error it means you have some incorrect parameters in your call to Indicators.InverseCyberCycle(…) We are currently working on these issues, so that CodeEditor works without restarting SQ and without these problems

     

    Cheers Mark,

     

    I coded the InverseCyberCycle and I’ve sent it to support so hopefully you can have a quick look at it because I cannot see any errors in the code.

     

    Thanks.

    Yes I used str file with all the data, sqx and mt4 difference is not huge

    Thanks, that’s good to know, though a bit disappointing that SQ3 can produce such inconsistencies. I hope SQX will be more stable in that aspect. Cheers

     

     

    But I used SQ 3 here:  https://strategyquant.com/forum/topic/mt4-backtest-wrong-results/#post-235440

    and the trades are approx 180 over 15 years.  Do you think there could be a problem with how you uploaded the data in SQ3?  Just a note before you stop using Pivots: some of my best live strategies use Pivots.

    To ensure Pivot consistency ensure the time of the data you use (GMT) matches the broker time.  If the broker MT4 is GMT+2 and the data you use is GMT the Pivot calculation will be different since it is calculates using daily prices.  Pivots are one of the most powerful indicators in SQ (and in discretionary short-term trading) just make sure the SQ data time matches the broker before building models that use Pivots.

    Just testing the strategy using real-ticks and variable spread before passing it on.  I won’t bother doing an exact walk-forward since I’m not going to trade it. equity curve

    I think I would actually leave it out of the portfolio

     

    No worries.  I’ll give the strategy to a friend so it doesn’t go to waste. 😉

    I get 3 errors displayed (see attached) How can I fix it?

     

    The length of my one error was much longer than any of your 3.

     

    I’ve just finished my first custom programming on SQ.  I have build an Inverse Cyber Cycle indicator which almost compiles…lol.  I have one error:

    “cannot find symbol:method InverseCyberCycle(com.strategyquant.tradinglib.ChartData, double,int)location…bla bla bla.

     

    I’ll reboot my computer, who knows I might get lucky and it may compile after the restart.

    I’d report this as a bug but I don’t know if it is just me:

    • On page 17 of the Extending_SQX.pdf on the SQX home tab there is ForceIndex indicator source code to support the example. When I try to compile that code it returns an error. I’d be grateful if someone can quickly attempt to compile that code just to confirm it isn’t just me.

    Hello Notch, what fault are you getting reported?

     

    This is so strange: I didn’t make a note of the compilation error, an error that happened several times even after I restarted SQX.  I just started SQX to make a note of the compilation error but this time it compiled successfully.

     

    ————————————————————————————————————-

    I love the new AlgoWizard.  I find EAWizard to be rather eccentric and a little confusing so AlgoWizard is a fine addition to SQ.

    And that is fine but I think it’s prudent to do an exact WFA to cover the last 2 runs of the WFM.  A simulated WF is not exact, it is a rough estimation of strategy performance.  Normally, it is sufficient but there will be differences between a simulated WF and the MT4 strategy tester.  If you want precision you’ll need to use an exact WF.  However, it can take ages to run an exact WF on the entire data range or even a few years if the strategy has several parameters.  This is why I only use a small % of the data to do a quick exact WF.  The number of trades from an exact WF will probably be around the 70 mark.
