No Optimization Results?

I have been away from the NT7 internal optimization function. I recently found a use for it, I have 631 potentially good "strategy" models I would like to process numbered 1 -> 631 and figured I could set a variable to have the optimizer run each model (Optimization parameter being the model number to review). I was excited about this, set it up and then handed it off to the Optimizer only to be faced with a message that doesn't make sense.

I have even tried modifying additional parameters and it still returns the same error.

Any ideas?

Don't know if this helps but this is a sample of the input box with the parameters to optimize.

It is set for Momentum bars, not sure if you can optimize with the exotic bar types?

Some ideas:

- restart NT
- restart PC
- compile the code again after restart
- repair DB (Tools->Options->Data)

@NJAMC

Also - can you optimize on any of the other strategies (@Sample....)?

Also (2) - have you selected an instrument to optimize on?

Thanks @gregid,

I didn't select the Instrument on the left, I set it within the Optimizer, thought that was enough. I got it running, now I have a different problem. See below:

Now, the optimizer is running the strategies, but for some reason, not collecting the results of the run. As you can see, internally to the strategy the results were created (on the chart image). But not in the summary results so I don't know if it is optimizing the model (actually, I am sure it is not).

try making some simple optimization on a sample strategy to see if the problem is NT/settings/your strategy.

Got it working

A few things I found out, the Optimizer doesn't like any form of exception. It also doesn't seem to load up "Bars.BarsType.Period.Value" in the OnStartUp() function properly. Seems to be okay after it starts calling OnBarUpdate(), had to hand code the Value into a string, otherwise it was a file not found error.

Here is my run!

Don't forget to regularly delete db\cache directory. I've seen this be a problem many times and it isn't just me.

Mike

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.
6)
