Part 1: NeoTicker for TradeStation Users
Bruce DeVault
Bruce will present on NeoTicker features of specific interest for TradeStation users including the usage of alternative bar types, sub-minute timestamps, tick replay, mixing bar types on a single chart, mixing strategies, indicators and studies in a single program, and portfolio trading capabilities. This session will be geared to users familiar with TradeStation who want to see how some of these types of features work on an alternative platform, and will be a quick overview & demonstration of features of interest, not a detailed analysis of the platform.

Part 2: Preparing EasyLanguage for Optimization
Bruce DeVault
Bruce will present an abbreviated version of a talk given last summer to genetic algorithm enthusiasts regarding basic steps to take to prepare your EasyLanguage strategy for optimization. Example EL code will be modified live in preparation for a basic optimization run and various simple approaches will be discussed which help make strategies friendly to optimization, as well as to help reduce the likelihood of over-fitting in the design process. This session will be geared to users starting out with optimization on the TradeStation platform.
