Trading involves a lot of risks, but also sizable profits if correct strategies are implemented at the right moment. What's more, the dynamic nature of most markets means these tactics have to be constantly updated to keep up with new trends. Adaptrade Builder allows its users to build and evaluate hundreds of trading scenarios and, thus, generate improved strategies, with correspondingly better results.
Build and test trading strategies
The output results can be applied in conjunction with programs like TradeStation, MultiCharts, NinjaTrader 7, MetaTrader 4, and AmiBroker, although none of these applications are required per se to run Adaptrade Builder. Analysis results can be applied to a wide range of markets, including FOREX, stocks, and futures.
It should be stated that the tool can gobble up resources quite quickly, more-so when building or evaluating strategies. In this respect, the more memory and raw computing power a user can provide the utility, the faster the analyses will be.
Track multiple metrics
Concerning the actual results, the program follows a simple four step layout, in which users provide input parameters - such as market data, as well as the desired outcomes. For the latter items, one can choose multiple metrics, including L/S profit and trades ratios, maximum consecutive wins or losses, as well as standard indices, such as gross profit or losses and account returns; source information is extracted from CSV documents.
The next two steps involve building the actual strategy, a task that is entirely automated, and generating strategy codes – which are dumped into a text box once analyses are completed. To build strategies, the application tests hundreds and even thousands of scenarios – a task that can take considerable time, using genetic programming technology.
The comprehensive analysis results are displayed in ample text boxes and users also have the option to view and analyze trend line graphs. Once satisfied with their projects, users can export strategies to MSA, MT4, and NinjaScript formats.
An overall comprehensive solution for creating trading tactics based on genetic programming models
All things considered, Adaptrade Builder is an asset for traders who regularly transact in the stocks, futures or FOREX markets. It allows one to build and test hundreds of strategies to obtain improved results. As always, caution should be exercised when dealing with stochastic analyzers, as actual results can vary from computed ones.
