Most importantly the ability to back test these and optimise per input is supremely helpful. Apart from the dissappointment that thus far I have not been able to get AI to work on my computer, something that I would very much like ( it gives an error upon launch ). All the discussions center around data points that are far apart i.e. day, week etc. One can get the same feel and faster feedback using closer data points i.e. 1hr., etc. Below 1hr. one encounters too much noise. I read that this data too is available free. Does AI generate and plot a chart ? Have you or anyone else tried running AIM against renko etc. bars which give different picture of market action. I encountered a trading software which relied on management to make it successful. Though only 1/3 of it's trades were winners, it,s management of them gave the software a positive expectancy. Now one of it's users coupled the software with range bars. In doing so he was seeing a different picture. His win % shot up ( shooting fish in a barrel was his description ) and coupled with the trade management this software offered his earnings were greater than others. A good trade management platform is a major positive. This management software is used by daytraders and long term investors. A good management software should be able to manage all scenereos irrespective of the data points choosen.
