To switch to the strategy optimization mode, click the Optimization button on the Emulation tab.
A tab will open in the workspace with the name Optimization + Strategy Name. The Optimization tab is separated into three areas, Properties, Parameters for optimization, Optimization result:
In the Properties area, you can change emulation settings, basic scheme parameters.
The Optimization result area is a table, were each line is a result of strategy testing with unique parameters. Also, in the Optimization result area there is a progress-bar, showing optimization progress, elapsed time and calculated time to the end of optimization.
The Parameters for optimization consists of two tables. The upper table is a list of strategy parameters, which could be optimized. The lower table adjusts the optimization range and optimization increment for the parameter, selected from the upper table.
Further, optimization will be considered using the SMA strategy as an example. If in the SMA strategy, without preliminary preparation, click the Optimization button, there will be only one optimization parameter - Volume. In order to add the moving average periods as optimization parameters it is necessary in the SMA Indicator Cube check the Parameter check box:
After checking the Parameter check box in the required units and clicking the Optimization button, the SMA Optimization tab is opened:
In the example, one optimization parameter is taken - the length of short moving average, Short SMA, from 10 to 20 in increments of 1. As a result, we get 11 SMA strategies with different parameters.
