The idea here is to generate lots of trading strategies using the StrategyQuant. We recommend at least 1,000, or even better 10,000 strategies. This would take a few days or less.
Do not use very strict ranking options. It's completely okay to have "not so good" strategies in the data bank. You never know which one of them may work perfectly on other instrument(s).
When generating strategies, do this in one attempt. I mean do not stop the strategy generation and continue it with other parameters. This would make it impossible to retest strategies later. It's okay to stop generation, change building blocks and continue.
Once you have a large sample of trading systems generated, save them as .str files for backup. You will need these later so you could export it in MetaTrader 4, Ninjatrader or TradeStation format.
