BTSeqMgr for TradeStation


Package:  Backtesting Automation Sequence Manager (BTSeqMgr)

TradeStation's chart-oriented backtesting provides superb visualization, detailed reporting, and easy-to-use browse/reload capability for single-symbol, single-timeframe backtests.  However, the TradeStation platform does not offer a built-in way to automatically run a sequence of backtests across multiple symbols and multiple timeframes.

CodeForTraders is pleased to offer you the solution:  Backtesting Automation Sequence Manager (BTSeqMgr) by Burkhard Eichberger.

What It Does

BTSeqMgr lets you run a sequence of backtests of any TradeStation strategy across any list of symbols and timeframes automatically (e.g. overnight, or over a weekend).

A straightforward Sequence Editor dialog lets you define the symbols, timeframes, and strategy parameter variations:


including the setup of the TS Genetic Optimizer (TS 8.5 and later).

Symbol lists and timeframe lists may be created, saved, and reloaded, and the initial entry of strategy parameters is quickly accomplished in one quick step  via the 'Add Parameter from Strategy' which causes an automatic reading of all the strategy's parameters from the TS Strategy Format box.  Subsequently, you define the parameter variation ranges as you wish them to be tested for the sequence.  The entire sequence definition can then be named and saved for future use.

Here is the main display from which you Start or Stop a sequence and perform various other operations:


Above, we see a sequence in progress, at Step 30 out of 40.

Comprehensive output includes (according to your selections) -

bullet   a TradeStation workspace (with the optimization report in it) for each symbol/timeframe combination
bullet   a .CSV file of multiple iteration results for each symbol/timeframe combination
bullet   a "short format" .CSV file with selected performance stats for the best iteration in each  symbol/timeframe
bullet   an Excel spreadsheet version of the TS Performance report for the best iteration in each  symbol/timeframe
bullet   a .MHT file version of the TS Performance report for the best iteration in each  symbol/timeframe


( etc. for all defined symbols and timeframes)
