The WTSUG meeting on Wednesday, September 12, 2007 was held from 7:00pm to 10:00pm at Davis Libary, Montgomery County, Maryland.

Agenda:

Getting the most from TradeStation’s new Forex trading features

Presenter: Bruce DeVault

Bruce will provide a quick recap of the new features in TS 8.3 as they pertain specifically to Forex trading and automation, and then give some practical tips on how to make the most of the new features you may not have used yet in an actual Forex strategy running on TradeStation.

Optimizing Tick-Precise Trading Systems on NeoTicker

Presenter: Bruce DeVault

We’ll walk through a quick example of how to build a tick-precise indicator calculation on the NeoTicker platform and some of the differences between tick-precise calculations and indicators that do not need tick precision, then demonstrate an optimization of a tick-precise trading system using NeoTicker’s Grid Optimizer, an advanced optimization program supporting distributed optimization across multiple computers. Emphasis will be on what works and what doesn’t, and an example optimization will be shown for a real tick-precise trading system.

Open Discussion / Question & Answer Period

Ample time will be made available for group discussion of current issues with TradeStation or other platforms, and for new users to draw on the group’s extensive collective experience with how to solve practical problems.
