    Hi Chris,

    Have you thought about using a watchlist and chart layouts? Have a look at this video https://www.optuma.com/videos/optuma-101-16-chart-layouts/ while there is only one chart being used. you could have 6 charts with each having its own layout.

    All the best

    Hi Michael,

    Just letting you know that they reached out today. We’ll see where it goes. These things can take a couple of months, but fingers crossed we can get access to what we need!

    All the best

    Hi Ian,

    Yes, I often think about putting that back in!

    The Bar Pattern builder, in particular, was really cool and I still have the code for it all. The difficulty is making that all slot into the new script based way that we do all scans. I might add that to the schedule and see if we can get time to work on it.

    The scan images were easy in MA2 as I only had a handful of fixed scans. Now that anything is possible through scripting, that becomes a lot harder. We’d have to have sample data and then do all the calculations. But what if the script needed 5 years of data? With scanning so flexible in Optuma, it is almost impossible for us to do that. That’s why I always recommend that you bring your scripts into the Show tools (show bar, show plot, show view) first. Then you can verify that the results are what you expect.

    All the best

    Hi Ian,

    In the properties of the Backtester there is an option called “Max Hold Time” just change that to the number of days you want to hold for. Then you do not need an exit script.

    Hi Andrew,

    My planned rewrite of the Astro engine has been delayed due to other projects taking priority. Instead, we have made a lot of fixes to tools like the Synodics and improved the speed of the interval tools.

    Because this was logged with the rewrite I must confess that I have completely forgotten about it. I’ll add it to the schedule on its own. It will not be before Optuma 1.7 though.

    Adding comments to posts is the best way, but please don’t add comments unless it is something that really would make a difference. We have finite resources and while I wish we could add everything, we have to pick and choose. Usually, it’s a balance of how hard is it? how many people want/need it? does it help us sell more Optuma?

    All the best

    Mathew

    Hi Andrew,

    It’s an interesting idea but it is not simple since out ephemeris does not have the capability without us doing a lot of work. Unless we start getting a lot of demand for this, I just can not see it getting high enough on our priority list to get actioned.

    All the best

    Hi Jamie,

    I’ll have to think about the best way to do this. I agree that it would make it better.

    In the mean time, do you know that you can type in the layout editor and it will short list the layouts you have in the list?

    All the best

    Hi Jamie,

    We have this planned for version 2 of our testers. I hope for work to start on that within the next couple months.

    My issue with Optimization is that it should not be used without a measure of robustness. eg if a SMA 10 is the best, then I would expect SMA 9 & 11 to be ok too. If 10 is wildly better than all others, that sounds to me like it caught a lucky trade which has nothing to do with a 10 period being better than anything else.

    I do see the place for optimization but I’m only willing to put it in so long as I can provide a measure of robustness to the result. Something like an inverse of the expectancy from each test. The other thought is smoothness of all tests.

    Anyway, that is a long answer to say that it is coming, but not quickly.

    All the best

    Thnaks Michael,

    We’re just wrapping up the last items in 1.6 and then I’ll be able to get some time to have a look

    All the best

    Hi Andrew,

    They would be available in the Natal Aspects function as planets. Note that they are incorrect in there in version 1.5 as all four use the same value (which ever one is calculated first). This is solved in Optuma 1.6

    All the best

    Mathew.

    Hi Jeff,

    I think that would be a really great idea. It won’t make 1.6 but we can add it to the job list for 1.7

    All the best

    Nice! Also remember the Switch(on, off) function. I use that when I want to activate a zone above a threshold and leave it on until a different threshold is broken.

    Hi Micahel,

    That would be a really tricky change to make because we risk overlaps creating dark lines. There can be small differences in the spaces due to rounding etc. If you look at your image you will see some white lines are thinner than the rest.

    2020-06-20_11-05-13

    This will create a dark zone if we just widen the show bar.

    Better to use a show view with the same script and drag it into the chart view. It will be one continuous zone then.

    All the best

    Mathew

    Hi Michael,

    Yes I saw some interesting code for Oanda when I was working on IQ – I meant to quiz the developer on it. Your explanation makes sense of what I saw. I think most providers see it as a rolling 24 hour market and so they do not see the importance of the defined open and close for the days.

    I had contact with IG a few years ago. If their MT4 is compatible with what we have done, then while not trivial, it is not a major project to add them. The hardest part is finding the point of contact. I’ll start digging around but if you know of someone please email me directly.

    All the best

    Mathew
