Genetic Optimization for Bloodhound

I have a script to open up Shark Indicators Bloodhound through Ninja's Strategy Analyzer and extract and change values within it. I can also export tests results to excel and read the values.

I would like to make this script capable of optimizing the indicator values but I don't know where to start and neither does my programmer. He can mimic the various GUI's for the genetic optimizer but doesn't know or understand the math that needs to be implemented to process the results.

Are there any open source genetic optimizing algorithm's that would be easy to implement into my script and GUI? Or would I have to hire a computer science/math guy to make something from scratch?

But it doesn't work with NT7 as-is, so be extremely careful.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Just curious if anything ever came from this? I need to find a way to change values inside Bloodhound! Amazing program but not being able to vary indicator values inside a strategy backtest is a big handicap.

Yes! Need to be able to optimize on bloodhound raven

This is a BIG handicap of this otherwise amazing tool.

IF you could optimize on indicator values THEN you really could have a complete testing platform.

Maybe there could be a way to export the logic from bloodhound /raven to a regular NT 8 strategy?

How hard do you think this would be to code?
