So many EA's, so little time.
Like to open a new thread here to discuss fast / better ways to optimize EA's.
Optimizing EA's takes time, and oftentimes I find myself scrapping results on one outcome, only to realize I should have started with other parameters instead.
If you have any tips / tricks / ideas to share based on your experience I would love to hear about them.
Optimization can be a grueling process but if you have a sound strategy to go about it a lot of time can get shaven off if you zone in on the right things.
My biggest issue is the sheer time it takes to go through a single ea. Running the genetic algorithm helps, but only to a certain extent. Letting metatrader go for 3 days while it optimizes an ea seems rediculous, so genius', please post away and share some ideas.
Floor is open to anything that strikes you.....I'm intermediate in terms of metatrader. I'm skilled when it comes to trading tactics, not as much programming. (This thread could be considered a silent cry for help on my behalf, if you've ever been at the same skill-level as me ).
I find a lot of times many EA's that have excellent long term potential get pushed aside for newer EA's just because they got 'lucky' on initial backtesting results. I'd like to start this discussion in an effort to teach old dogs new tricks and keep them in the portfolio where they belong.
