    How does one run the optimization function for strategies? I cannot seem to figure that part out. Thanks in advance.
     
  2. Format strategies and select inputs. Choose the input you want to optimize then click optimize.
    Good luck

    What is the Easylanguage command for confirming a signal by waiting x bars after your entry signal to actually go long or short? If after waiting for the confirming bars, you find your signal was false, you abort trade. Thank you again in advance.
     
  5. I'm not sure what you are refering to, but what if you used conditions? for example:

    condition1 = close[3] > highest(high,10)[3];
    condition2 = close > close[1];

    if condition1 and condition2 then buy this bar at close;
    This way you access past bars and if your various conditions aren't met then there is no signal.

    Good luck - though I would change forums to get better answers.
