      I try to generate strategies with Monte Carlo tests but I don’t get any strategies for collection. What am I doing wrong.
      I use 300 min. I use Randomize indicator parameters and Randomize backtest starting bar for Monte Carlo. No strategies pass Monte Carlo Validation.
      Grateful for all suggestions

      Are you using default for the Monte Carlo validation? Minimum net profit 10 and minimum count of trades 100?

      If you have a good number of strategies that passed acceptance criteria but they fail to pass Monte Carlo validation, probably there is a problem with data you are using, maybe too small number of bars loaded. How many bars do you have? Which timeframe?

      About acceptance criteria, what is the minimum count of trades do you set? Minimum 300 or more?

      Are you using out of sample?

      Monte Carlo minimum Count of trades 300, net profit 10.
      Acceptans criteria minimum Counts of trades 300, minimum profit factors 1,2
      In sample.

      I made some changes according to your suggestions. And it did the trick, now strategies are going through Monte Carlo.
      Thanks Luis

      Hey Gert,

      If you share what changes you did exactly, it will be useful for the other beginner traders that might face that issue.


      Interesting topic here, guys.

      I changed Monte Carlo Validation Minimum Count of trades to 100 and then it started to let strategies pass.

      Hey Gert,

      Yeah, that is fine to keep the Monte Carlo with 100.
