Genetic Algorithm

Very simply put the Genetic Algorithm attempts to find the most optimal set of parameters for a strategy. It does this not by brute force testing each individual combination as the default optimization method does, but instead using the concept of evolutionary theory borrowed from biology where only the fittest parents (combined with mutation and crossover) produce children for the next generation. Through testing of multiple generations you should have narrowed down on the most optimal parameters and therefore saving you time from having to test every single parameter combination.
