Thanks so much, Petko! If it wasn’t for you, I would have never had this kind of progress. Much appreciated to you and the developers of EA Studio.

Ok, that makes me feel better. I believe that I go through a pretty rigorous process in generating the strategy, filtering to the one that I would like to demo, demo test, and then go live. To generate 96 EAs, it took me almost 2 months, but I feel the time is worth it.

I’m not really sure I even want to do optimization now. I feel like if the EA passes the acceptance criteria in generation, the demo testing criteria to go live, and then maintains the same success rate in live trading, there is no need to optimize. If it starts to perform below the expectation, then I would just replace it with a new EA created from my process.

So, I guess I’m trying to figure out maybe when should optimization be utilized and if so, is it worth it?
