Everyone who has ever optimized an Expert Advisor faced a problem of choosing the best parameters from all the optimization results. Best of the Best is intended to solve it.
The application has a simple and intuitive graphical interface. It allows sorting the results of optimization according to specified criteria (Profit, Drawdown, etc.; 4 criteria in total and 9 in the full version) and weeding out them using filters based on each criterion (for example: Profit > 5000,Â Drawdown < 0.2). The optimization results are read from the strategy tester report file of the *.xml format (must be located in MQL5\Files\).
After the final sorting, you can save any of the variants in a *.set file, which can be used for further testing and operation of the Expert Advisor.
How to Use Best of the Best:
Enter the name of the xml file with optimization results (the “Optimization Results” or the “Forward Result” tab in the strategy tester). The file must be located in MQL5\Files\.
Click the “Load File” button and wait for the message “File is read:<FileName>.xml” to appear.
Set the priority for criteria.
Set the filter parameters.
Choose the necessary variant and save it to a *.set file by clicking the “Save *set” or “Save All *set” button (the latter one will save all the variants from the table).
Use the obtained set files (\MQL5\Files\BestOfTheBest\<EA Name> <currency pair>,<Period> <StartDate>-<EndDate>\) for the real time working of for testing the Expert Advisor.
