MSA Version 3.5.0

Posted: Dec 22, 2015

 

This version of MSA includes a new parallel processing Monte Carlo algorithm to take full advantage of multi-core processors when performing Monte Carlo analyses. MSA can now also read trade data from RINA xml files and can automatically combine the trade data from multiple xml files. In addition, version 3.5 includes several other changes and bug fixes. Please see the release notes for details.

 

Note: Versions 3.3.0 and higher contain a new drop-down menu in the menu bar that initially shows as "Current Sequence" and can be changed to "Monte Carlo". If upgrading from an older version and the drop-down menu is not visible the first time you open the program, select "Customize..." from the View menu and, on the Toolbars tab, click the "Reset All" button.

 

This version can be installed concurrently with version 3.4.x or older. If you already have an older version installed, version 3.5 should not need to be activated; that is, it should be activated when first opened.

 

Anyone with a valid license for MSA version 2 or higher may upgrade free of charge to this version. If you need to activate version 3, please submit the 9-digit registration number from the trial/registration screen via the MSA 3 Activation page. The registration number is the 9-digit number found on the lower portion of the Trial screen that appears when you run the installed program. The activation code will be generated and emailed back as soon as possible (usually within two business days). For installation on a second (or new) computer, please submit the registration number for that computer.

Note: Recent versions of Windows are almost all 64-bit, so, in most cases, the 64-bit version of MSA should be installed. While the 32-bit version of MSA will run on both 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows, the 64-bit version will be able to take advantage of all available installed memory to process larger data files. If you're not sure which version of Windows you have, you can check the System settings under the Control Panel. Both the 32 and 64-bit versions are compiled from the same code and are functionally identical, including the files they generate. Because they're the same program, only one may be installed on the same computer. If your computer runs 64-bit Windows, it's strongly recommended that you install the 64-bit version. For older computers running 32-bit Windows, install the 32-bit version of MSA.

MSA Version 3.4.0

Posted: June 14, 2013

 

This version adds a new type of Monte Carlo analysis designed to detect when a trading strategy has stopped working. The new analysis plots a prediction envelope around the last N trades, where N is chosen by the user. If the actual equity curve falls below the lower boundary of the envelope, it suggests the strategy may no longer be working properly. Version 3.4.0 also includes several bug fixes. Please see the release notes for details.

 

Note: Versions 3.3.0 and higher contain a new drop-down menu in the menu bar that initially shows as "Current Sequence" and can be changed to "Monte Carlo". If upgrading from an older version and the drop-down menu is not visible the first time you open the program, select "Customize..." from the View menu and, on the Toolbars tab, click the "Reset All" button.

 

If you're already using a prior release of version 3, such as version 3.2.1, this version should install without the need to activate; that is, it should install already activated.

 

Anyone with a valid license for MSA version 2 may upgrade free of charge to version 3. If you're a current licensee of version 2 and you wish to activate version 3, please submit the 9-digit registration number from the trial/registration screen via the MSA 3 Activation page.

New Version of WriteTrades

Posted: June 28, 2010

 

The WriteTrades function is used to generate a list of trades from a TradeStation chart for use in Market System Analyzer (MSA). This version, called WriteTradesSym, appends the symbol name to the file name used to store the trade data. It's designed to make it easier to use WriteTrades when the same strategy is applied to multiple charts. Instead of having to change the file name manually for each chart in which the strategy is applied, the file name will be created automatically to match the chart symbol.

 

To use WriteTradesSym, enter the file name input without the file extension. WriteTradesSym will automatically append the symbol name and the extension ".csv". For example, if you enter the name as "C:\MyFileName", and the symbol is "MSFT", the output of WriteTradesSym will be written to "C:\MyFileNameMSFT.csv".

 

DOWNLOAD LINK: WriteTradesSym.exe

(right-click the link and select "Save Target As...")

 

The download file is a self-extracting zip file. After downloading, run the file to extract the EasyLanguage files. The download contains a file for current versions of TradeStation (WriteTradesSym.eld), a file for TS 2000i (WriteTradesSym.els), and a text file (WriteTradesSym.txt).
