    Genetic Optimization on a cloud network

    Hello,

    Does NT8 have to capability to optimize (genetic) on a cloud system?
    With my computer, It's taking me forever to go through each iteration for 1 year of historical data.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Hello markkm,

    Thanks for your post.

    NinjaTrader will need to be installed on a PC or VPS and does not provide cloud computing services for backtests or other calculations. The calculations are local to the machine running NinjaTader and limited to the resources available on that machine.

    Optimization backtest performance will be affected by:
    • Amount of data and granularity (1 year of tick data is a lot of data to process)
    • How many iterations are involved in the optimization.
    • If the strategy has been written to take advantage of the IsInstantiatedOnEachOptimizationIteration property set to false


    Strategies that utilize IsInstantiatedOnEachOptimizationIteration (IIOEOI) set to false will not recreate class level variables during the backtest and can perform better in optimizations with the property set to true. This requires the strategy developer to reset class level variables in State.Configure or State.DataLoaded. Publicly available information on this property can be found below.

    IIOEOI - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...niteration.htm

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
