This bundle includes both the Turbo version of TradersStudio and the genetic optimizer plugin for the platform.
TradersStudio Turbo is the next-generation of our highly revered backtesting platform, TradersStudio. This program is a complete backtesting platform enabling you to test strategies and money management ideas efficiently and effectively. It is used by some of the largest hedge fund managers and has a long history of producing accurate results because it was built by traders for traders. Indeed, this program is incredible for creating new, innovative ideas in the trading realm. TradersStudio Turbo efficiently uses the cores in your computer to run optimizations and portfolio’s in parallel. This version is 800%-1000% faster than TradersStudio Professional.
The genetic optimizer has been completely rewritten for the Turbo version and is significantly faster than previous iterations of the software. This product uses Genetic Algorithms to evolve the best sets of parameters for TraderStudio’s Sessions, even one running large portfolio, as well as Trade Plans, which allows you to optimize asset allocation and money management. The case study in the manual shows how without any programming, just using a few mouse clicks you can optimize a system on a basket of markets.
This new Genetic Optimizer makes problems that were once impossible, solvable within a few hours or overnight. One example that I have personally done involved an optimization that had 110 million combinations and would have taken 3 years to solve via brute-force techniques. Using my experience and intuition, I was able to get a set of results that were close to optimal over the course of one month. This involved a lot of work, however, as it was essentially done purely by trial and error. I then ran this problem using the Genetic Optimizer and was able to get the same answer overnight. This is the power of the genetic optimizer! Therefore a problem that through brute force would have taken 3 years to solve, or an experienced human one month of labor to solve, was solved by the Genetic Optimizer in a matter of hours!
Why You Should Upgrade to TradersStudio Turbo
TradersStudio Turbo is designed for maximizing todays multicore CPU. TradersStudio Turbo can run 4-5 times faster on a quad core machine and 8-10 times faster on a six core CPU. It also was designed to scale and effectively use today’s 8 and 16 core based machines. We design our software so that it can adapt as computer technology gets faster. TradersStudio Turbo is also very easy to upgrade. TradersStudio Turbo can run on the same machine as TradersStudio Pro and will not affect your TradersStudio Pro installation. In addition you can even run both versions at the same time.
Support for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
TradersStudio Turbo is the current actively supported version of TradersStudio and will continue to be maintained as Windows evolves over the next few years. Currently TradersStudio Professional is only approved up though Windows 8.0. If you have Windows 8.1 or are planning to upgrade your O.S. soon, we strongly recommend that you get Turbo instead of Professional.
If you purchase TradersStudio Turbo or upgrade to TradersStudio Turbo, you will get free product upgrades as we make major improvements to the product. We plan on releasing at least three new major upgrades this year. These will include many exciting unique features that only exist in TradersStudio Turbo:
- Walk Forward Live: TradersStudio is already the only product which can develop walk forward optimization models on a portfiolo or markets. Walk forward live will bring walk forward into a brand new era. This amazing feature means that once a walk forward model is created you can bring it into a live trading system. It will now only run optimization when a new training window is required a keep all previous results static. It also will work inside of a TradersStudio trade plan and allow advanced money management while using walk forward. It will generate new orders for each bar, just like a normal session. TradersStudio is the only product which can not only backtest walk forward models but actually use them in real trading.
- Meta Trade Plans are another amazing feature which only exists in TradersStudio. This feature allows you to combine trade plans of different asset classes: futures, forex, and/or equities, and combine them into one trade plan using any type of money management rules you want. For example if you have a winfall profit from futures you could allocate that winfall to equities the following period. This can all be done dynamically.
- 64 bit Support means that TradersStudio can access more than 1.5 gig of memory. Currently, this is the limit on the Professional version which is only 32 bit. This, combined with multicore performance, means that you can analyze 1000s of stocks at once. It also means color report (our version of Radar Screen) can do the same.
- New redesigned interface, faster multithread reports, improved custom reports, and including multiple custom reports in same backtest.
We will have all these features and many more over the next 6-9 months as part of your free upgrades. Your upgrade package will include all these features and access to the charter program for real-time TradersStudio Turbo, which will be in beta late this year. We currently plan on selling this upgrade to existing Turbo owners for $149.00 and $349.00 if you are currently on only TradersStudio Pro.
Support For a New Generation of Add-ins
TradersStudio Turbo requires a completely new generation of add-ins to support multi-threading. These addins include:
- Genetic Optimizer
- Trading System Bot Technology
- Universal Seasonal
All of these addins bring a new level of power to system development. Some of these technologies can finally be used to their fullest because of the power and speed of TradersStudio Turbo. Examples of these are Neural Studio, the Genetic Optimizer, and CycleStudio. Others now are possible like my Trading System Bot Technology. This technology will bring walk forward optimization and adaptive systems into a new frontier. This add-in can automaticly analyze N dimensional space and find the most robust set of parameters and give you access to past results of all training and out of sample windows. You can even have multiple walk forward systems within the same script. In addition it does not even require running from a system, you can now create indicators which parameters are optimized based on a backtest.
In addition you still get all the great features that come with TradersStudio Professional! Upgrading not only enhances your speed of TradersStudio but it also adds many awesome features to an already robust platform.
