Parameter Dialog – Numeric/Time Series

Choose either a numeric value or a data series for the parameter whose name is shown in the title bar.

To select a numeric value:

  1. Enter a numeric value in the indicated field.
  2. Press the OK button.

To select a data series currently associated with your chart (file data, indicator inputs/outputs, or prediction inputs/outputs):

  1. Select one or more data series from the list.
  2. To select indicator, prediction, and trading strategy inputs and outputs, click the mouse over the small + and ‘ symbols to the left of the root indicator, trading strategy, or prediction.
  3. Press the OK button.

To create a new indicator to use as the variable:

  1. Press the Indicator button.

To select other instrument data that is not currently associated with your chart:

  • To determine the range of values that are valid for this parameter refer to the Indicator Help.
  • To list multiple values separate each value by a comma (i.e. 5,10,15,20). Note that if the windows regional settings are set such that a semi-colon is the standard Windows list separator, then separate each value by a semi-colon (i.e. 5; 10; 15; 20).
  • To list a range of values separate the start of the range from the end of the range with a colon (i.e. 5:10 = 5,6,7,8,9,10). You may also place an increment value after the end value, again separated by a colon (i.e. 5:25:10 = 5,15,25).
  • When selecting numeric values for indicators when performing Full Optimization or Parameter Search optimization from the Prediction Wizard or Trading Strategy Wizard you need to enter a range of values to perform the optimization across (the larger the range the longer the optimization process will take).
