I just downloaded Multicharts and Price Action Lab. The latter finds patterns and writes EL code you can use in Multicharts. I have tried it before but I did not have a lot of time to play with it then. I think patterns of this kind have more chances than indicators and data mining bias is decreased a lot since all patterns depend on OHLC only. I think genetic programming is a fancy term for curve-fitting. At least this is the purpose we used it for in college. I have heard that most hedge funds have given up on neural networks and genetic programming and now are using other methods for finding edges. Someone I know who worked for an investment bank before told me that genetic programming was a disaster for them. Maybe some fuzzy logic expert systems are better for this task.
