One of the features introduced with TradeStation 9.5 was the Optimization API. This API allows the TradeStation user to do optimizations over multiple symbols, multiple intervals and more.
Tutorial 100 demonstrated how to create a simple trading app to optimize two strategies across multiple symbols and bar lengths. It also used a simple form to display the progress of the optimization taking place and to allow the user to start and stop the optimization.
In tutorial 100 the symbols used in the optimization were hard coded in the program. A Gold Pass member asked how to go about importing a symbol list into the optimizer. Quick-tip 37 demsonstrates how this can be achieved.
The Quick-tip 37 program is available for free download for Gold Pass members below. Others can download the program for $29.95 here:
The quick-tip does not apply to MultiCharts.
The following short video shows the process.
