I saw in one of Big Mike's videos about creating automated strategies that he used a custom script for the "Optimize on..." category in Ninjatrader's optimizer / walk forward. I was wondering if Big Mike has posted his somewhere around here or if there are any out there in general? I'd at least like to see an example of one to tweak it to my liking, but a fully put together one would of course be better. As it is, NinjaTrader only lets your run optimization on one parameter, which is almost useless.

@Big Mike Help please!

@kevinkdog I've been reading recently about your trading style and this question seems like it would be right up your alley.

I don't use Ninjtrader for development, I use Tradestation. I think just about everything I have ever wanted to do, I can do in Tradestation.

You should also be aware that NT8 can optimize on multiple objectives:

That's great to know. At the moment I'm mostly focusing on learning C#/NinjaScript so I'm hesitant to switch to NT8 while it is still buggy. I'm excited to switch when NT8 is all polished though.
