hi Everyone

WL SB is back going the same thing where I can't get my imports folder to oppen and then WL freezes where clicking another tab and then clicking back to WL does not change the screen back to WL. Much of the WL page becomes visible if you wipe the mouse over tha page. It is like an etch-a-sketch. No functions work at that point and you have to close and reopen the program.

01-19-2013 10:40:48
Steve
how many applications do you have running?
01-19-2013 10:41:11
cosmo
Only Prodigio
01-19-2013 10:41:26
Steve
do you have virus scan enabled?
01-19-2013 10:41:41
cosmo
yes...Avast
01-19-2013 10:41:57
Steve
i use avast also..the free one
have you tryind to look at what the process is doing in task manager? how is the CPU and Memory?
seems like you may have to change resolution being that the screen is painting sketchy
01-19-2013 10:43:46
cosmo
I will if it happens again. The other tabs seem to work ok however.
Only the WL tab section locks up
01-19-2013 10:46:06
Steve
SB tab is ok when you browse folders?
have you changed the default folder location?
is it pulling from a remote drive or mapped drive?
01-19-2013 10:50:09
BruceB_RR
Good Moring Guys :)

Hi Bruce
I have to run.. be back later.. was just trying to help out cosmo
01-19-2013 10:51:28
BruceB_RR
I am getting the same problem that Cosmo is seeing.
01-19-2013 10:51:43
Steve
mine is fine
01-19-2013 10:53:10
cosmo
SB works normal (other than being very slow right now) until I try to modify a strat. It does not happen all of the time. SB may work fine for quite a while then fail. BT has also been an on/off issue where I have to bring up another strat and then switch back to the one I want to the engine to run.
01-19-2013 10:53:21
BruceB_RR
How many Rules do you have in your import folder?
+/-
01-19-2013 10:53:39
cosmo
a lot
01-19-2013 10:54:10
Steve
hope you figure it out..see you all later
01-19-2013 10:54:24
BruceB_RR
Have a good one.
01-19-2013 10:54:50
cosmo
Actually it is RB where I am having the problem
The whole sub tabs within WL become inactive
01-19-2013 10:55:55
BruceB_RR
Yeah, me too.
01-19-2013 10:56:37
cosmo
It may work for a long time and then all of a sudden go to etch-a-sketch mode.
01-19-2013 10:57:05
BruceB_RR
I also still have a large number of rules that have errors.
01-19-2013 10:57:07
cosmo
A program restart gets it working again
WL always seems to open now on a restart with the last worked on strat when it was last closed. That strat says "unnamed" rather than the strat name.
01-19-2013 10:59:29
BruceB_RR
I've seen that also.
01-19-2013 10:59:37
cosmo
The old version never did this. It always opened with a clean slate
From BT results I find that RTS only matched some of my fills and none of the RTS fills closed when they should. BT closes looked correct.
01-19-2013 11:01:03
BruceB_RR
If it works, I like this behavior. Been times that I was working on something and didn't get it saved.
01-19-2013 11:02:22
cosmo
The on TM I am seeing are on the stop side even though the stop and exit are in the same rule with an OR block.
01-19-2013 11:03:36
BruceB_RR
I've got a number of rules that I know that I have fixed that are broken again with the same problem. Problem with the way the Prev and other nodes work now.
01-19-2013 11:04:41
cosmo
I move Prev around as suggested by Mike and fixed my main ones. They now come up black everytime it opens
moved
01-19-2013 11:05:58
BruceB_RR
I also moved mined mine around, they just seem to reform back the way they were.
01-19-2013 11:05:58
cosmo
Do we have a way to isolate a single bar to measure it?
Like finding highest high bars some time back.
01-19-2013 11:08:23
BruceB_RR
I'm thinking that maybe the .wls file still holds the strat and all of the rules as they were when I first imported them. and at some point that info gets reread and changes the rules.
01-19-2013 11:08:38
cosmo
And then measuring or doing other math functions on them.
01-19-2013 11:11:08
BruceB_RR
Not sure what you mean I guess. You could do a capture.
01-19-2013 11:12:38
cosmo
Would a capture only capture a close price by default or what ever part of the bar you filtered or would it capture all values of OHLC
01-19-2013 11:13:41
BruceB_RR
Capture would hold the value it is given.
01-19-2013 11:14:40
cosmo
I'm more interested in capturing a certain bar with all of it's OHLC values to later do math with.
01-19-2013 11:15:36
BruceB_RR
Hmmm, I guess you could use four captures..........
01-19-2013 11:18:31
cosmo
That is what I was thinking...pretty messy. Are you still using your entry rule in your exit rule as a work around to not having our entry price?
01-19-2013 11:19:13
BruceB_RR
Not in any of my current strats.
01-19-2013 11:19:31
cosmo
Did it work as I never tried it?
It seems like it might work on a strat that does not fire much
01-19-2013 11:20:45
BruceB_RR
It does to a limited extent. In that it can get a new value if the entry strat fires again.
Yeah, that is the type of strats that I was trying it with before.
01-19-2013 11:22:00
cosmo
So...if the price jumps around and dives in out of where our strat fires it would reset each time.
01-19-2013 11:22:19
BruceB_RR
Yes
I also came up with a different way to get just one value but it seemed to only backtest about 50% of the time.
01-19-2013 11:23:46
cosmo
That would be a problem. We really need our entry info. Do you have an example of it. I thought I had one however it has been so long I can't find it in the mess of stuff I have accumulated.
01-19-2013 11:24:27
BruceB_RR
Let me get some coffee and a bowl of cereal and I will take a look. :)
01-19-2013 11:24:50
cosmo
Time to eat here too
01-19-2013 11:37:42
BruceB_RR
Wow, found it fairly quickly :)

It still needs your entrance rule, but the entrance rule really only changes the state of the first capture, I'm using it as a switch.
01-19-2013 11:56:40
cosmo
My rule would be the one you have as Master Snow Tire (what a name)?
01-19-2013 11:58:29
BruceB_RR
LOL, I think it was last year about this time I was working on it. It is looking for traction in front of a LR Slope. :)
I never figured out why the logic either worked and gave me the %5 I was looking for or it basically got me out at the entry price. Never figured out how it got the Entry price to the line.
01-19-2013 12:10:59
cosmo
I will give it a try later this afternoon. We had high winds a few weeks ago and neighbor's tree fell on my property. I'm in the forest so its not a big deal...just free firewood:) Out with the chain saw...50 degrees here today. BBL
01-19-2013 12:11:40
BruceB_RR
Keep your fingers clear :)
01-19-2013 12:12:02
cosmo
I can still type:)
Can't log in tonight.
01-20-2013 05:09:11
BruceB_RR
Interesting, I thought I was still connected, But a quick BT says I'm waiting for two others.
01-20-2013 05:18:47
cosmo
BT for me this afternoon said 1 in front. I went out and worked for 2hrs and it was still there. I restarted and it won't connect now.
01-20-2013 05:19:41
BruceB_RR
Ha, you are probably the second in front of me then ;)
I'll txt Mike and let him know something is up! (or down;)
01-20-2013 05:21:21
cosmo
Loading now.
01-20-2013 05:22:11

Are you getting in?

Still loading
01-20-2013 05:54:01
BruceB_RR
Mike says he has someone checking.
01-20-2013 07:33:19
Steve
hi all
01-20-2013 07:33:48
BruceB_RR
Hey Steve.
01-20-2013 07:34:02
Steve
hey Bruce
Do you know what happened to scanning part of the straegy builder?
01-20-2013 07:35:49
BruceB_RR
They are re-booting the system.
01-20-2013 07:38:37
Steve
Prodigio is rebooting their build?
01-20-2013 07:40:57
BruceB_RR
Yeah, it will be the same build I believe. They had the data server on the BT engine go down I think is what Mike was txting me. a little cryptic.
01-20-2013 07:42:19
Steve
i just reread my question. wasnt expecting your answer to it..LOL
i was talking about the previous to Ver 5, there was a Scanning bucket in the straegy builder tab and all other management buckets.
01-20-2013 07:44:42
BruceB_RR
I'm still not following your question?
01-20-2013 07:44:49
Steve
i believe they were nuetral to the straegy. You can enable buy and other rules placed in management would automatically go to sell then you can name the strat
01-20-2013 07:45:40
BruceB_RR
Ah, I think I got it.
01-20-2013 07:46:23
Steve
they replaced it with buy sell and add to position
tabs
01-20-2013 07:47:16
BruceB_RR
It will be basically the same except the the different management areas are now tabs.
01-20-2013 07:48:34
Steve
i know that Shadowtrader created a strategy that is used to scan stocks. they created it with the scanning bucket. the strat no longer works
01-20-2013 07:48:41
BruceB_RR
You drag your rule in the top and set the order at the bottom. You can add more exits or Add to Positions as needed.
There are a lot of strats that don't work, there are a few changes to some of the nodes that have broken a lot of the existing rules.
You have a screen shot of the rule?
01-20-2013 07:50:30
Steve
i can get it
i have to launch Prodigio uno momento
01-20-2013 07:51:23
BruceB_RR
Hopefully it will be up now ;)
01-20-2013 07:52:47
Steve
not launching yet. probably still down. I can email it to you
01-20-2013 07:53:05
BruceB_RR
Sure
01-20-2013 07:54:17
Steve
do you have an email address?
01-20-2013 07:55:00
BruceB_RR
lol, send it to rr.tos.stuff@gmail.com.
It is on the site in a few places, just assumed.......
01-20-2013 07:55:35
Steve
sent it, thanks
01-20-2013 08:18:58
BruceB_RR
Still waiting :0
01-20-2013 08:19:10
Steve
:-)
01-20-2013 08:26:39
BruceB_RR
Well I have it, but I won't be able to look at it until Prodigio is back up.
01-20-2013 08:27:25
Steve
awesome, no problem
01-20-2013 08:29:14
BruceB_RR
Actually I was looking at the other Pairs Traders rules the other night. Here is what had to be changed in them.

ouch, laptop just bailed on me for the second time today.
01-20-2013 08:31:06
Steve
how do I attach a pic?
01-20-2013 08:32:17
RR
It needs to be on a server somewhere. I am using Imgur.
01-20-2013 08:32:41
Steve
like photobucket?
01-20-2013 08:33:34
RR
just paste the link as long as it ends in .png or other image extension.
01-20-2013 08:35:10
Steve
you sent me a few different rules a few days ago
i just emailed them to you. Do you think the one you just sent is better then either one I just sent you back?
01-20-2013 08:43:11
BruceB_RR
Yeah, I still like the ones I gave you then, the ones you just emailed me.
01-20-2013 08:45:05
Steve
:) so I should use the ones I sent you or the one you sent me today?
this one? http://i.imgur.com/hWmYlTi.png
01-20-2013 08:46:34
BruceB_RR
The one I posted here today was the first one we did the other day, it showed the errors that needed to be corrected. I hadn't made any other changes at that point.
Here is a article I am putting together on how to post in here.

Any work when Prodigio goes live with optionshouse?
word
01-20-2013 09:14:28
BruceB_RR
I think it will be once this version is stabilized again. Plus a period of confidence building.
01-20-2013 09:16:05
Steve
i think they made pretty good progress so far
01-20-2013 09:17:48
BruceB_RR
I was told +/- 30 days after this version was released, but I think there were a lot more fixes that needed to be made then they expected.
I think they have made great progress. :)
01-20-2013 09:19:39
Steve
i know how that goes. Im sure they will have a very stable product before they RTM
seems like they are still in maintainence mode. Ill try logging in again tomorrow
have a goodnight Bruce..thanks for the upload info
01-20-2013 09:28:30
BruceB_RR
Ok, You have a goodnight also. It is time for me to get some dinner anyway. :)
01-20-2013 09:29:03
