  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

NT optimizer not working as expected

I dont understand why when optimizing using NT default of even the genetic optimizer how I can get worse numbers when I expand the range of my parameters. It should never get worse when it has more choices including the ones that on a more restricted optimization showed better results (profit factor and cum profit unexpectedly goes down) What am i doing wrong?

You'll need to provide a couple specific examples as it's not possible to advise you based on your post. We need more details.

Post screenshots. If you don't know how to do screen shots, check here:


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.
