Index to Genetic Optimizers for NinjaTrader

I've done some Google and NinjaTrader Forum sleuthing to come up with what I hope is a comprehensive index to all things Genetic Optimizer for NinjaTrader. Please respond with other links if I have missed any or other comments and I'll try to keep this top post updated periodically.



NinjaTrader's 7 Built-in GO

* Works with NT 7.0 out of the box

Various Threads I found:
Optimization methods (genetic/brute force) - NinjaTrader Support Forum
Genetic optimiser bug - B7 - NinjaTrader Support Forum
Genetic Optimizer Status, Doc - NinjaTrader Support Forum


* Optimization constraints can be defined independently of fitness function. For example something like: (2*Target) > Stop
And, as well, that the minimum number of trades for a valid optimization result could be given.

* Not yet working for 7.0

Swig/Matt's Genetic Optimizer - MoGo:
zkwentz's MoGo at master - GitHub
MoGo - new genetic optimiser for NT 6.5 - NinjaTrader Support Forum

MoGo for NT7:

PH Genetics

Piers Haken - PH Genetics:



wmGO 2.0: Genetic Optimizer 2.0 for NinjaTrader 6.5 - NinjaTrader Support Forum
wmGO 2.1: Genetic Optimizer 2.1 for NinjaTrader 6.5 - NinjaTrader Support Forum
wmGO 2.2: Whitmark Genetic Optimizer 2.2 for NT 6.5 - NinjaTrader Support Forum

Pete's GO

* One of the first GO's written for NT platform as far as I know and was basis for PH Genetics, MoGo and possibly others.

Pete's GO version 1.5:
Genetic Optimizer v1.5 - NinjaTrader Support Forum
SQN (System Quality Number): New Optimizer Type: System Quality Number - NinjaTrader Support Forum
SQN (System Quality Number): Optimization function - System Quality Number - NinjaTrader Support Forum

GO Useful Tidbits

NT's Help Manual on GO Optimizer Types to build your own:
How to use enums with GO: Optimizing bool/enum/TimeSpan parameters - NinjaTrader Support Forum
Optimization Logger (1): Data Collection Per Trade - NinjaTrader Support Forum
Compiling Stats via CSVs via GOs: Compiling Statistics - NinjaTrader Support Forum
Optimizer vs Optimizer Type: Optimiser Type - NinjaTrader Support Forum

(1) Collect additional user-defined data on a per-trade basis. For example, I would love to collect volume data, indicator values, % price movements, etc. on the entry bar of a trade and show that data in the trades tab grid in the strategy analyzer results. That way, I could analyze volume, etc. on winning vs losing trades, etc.

Thanks for collecting this! IMHO it would be a nice idea to include a list of unique/special features of each optimizer. What I for one especially like about MoGo is that optimization constraints could be defined. For example something like: (2*Target) > Stop
And, as well, that the minimum number of trades for a valid optimization result could be given.
