Indicator runner - new tool to test indicators

Postby Konstantin.Toporov » Thu Feb 09, 2017 2:18 pm

Indicore SDK since 3.3.0 now contains a new tool - Indicator runner.
The tools is intended to make standalone indicator calculations and export the output data into a text file.
Indicator runner can use standard data source as well as external data (any csv file, downloaded, for example, from yahoo).
The samples how to use Indicator runner are included into Indicore SDK.
More details about the tool can be found in the Indicator runner documentation

I like this very much.
I have a few questions though

Can I output more than 1 indicator data at the same time? For example: would this be hard to achieve?
ni = mva
ni2 = stochastic
ni3 = bb

Can we extract both bid and ask at the same time?

How does -l options affect the output?
"clr" - Classic Lua Runtime
"jit" - Lua Vm Jit Interpreter
"ffi" - Lua Vm Jit Compiler

What is -rd for exactly?

I notice in sample file -h parameter, but not in the documentation, how to use this correctly?

I have problems using a custom CSV (cannot parse error). It is in the format used by "Get Historical Prices GUI" posted on General Discussion forum: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=63875, so:
DateTime BidOpen BidHigh BidLow BidClose AskOpen AskHigh AskLow AskClose Volume
21/10/2001 21:00 61.654 61.674 61.554 61.664 61.746 61.766 61.646 61.756 0

We tried to make the tool simple so it calculates only one indicator at time.
We will consider this feature to include into the future release.

Can we extract both bid and ask at the same time?

Bid and Ask are different price streams so the same indicator calculating Bid and Ask it is actually 2 indicator test runs.

How does -l options affect the output?

This option does not affect the output it should affect only calculations performance.

What is -rd for exactly?

This option is to get the output of ownerdrawn indicators. By default the OD ouput is written to out_od.csv. With this option the file name can be changed. We will extend the documentation to make it more comprehensive.

I notice in sample file -h parameter, but not in the documentation, how to use this correctly?

This parameter is to customize a format of the external csv files. We will extend the documentation about that topic as well.

I have problems using a custom CSV (cannot parse error)

We will research the problem and I ll post the results in this topic.

Thank you for the questions.

Cool. And what about tick frame indicators? Can t1 period be "simulated" on the candles in a similar fashion as backtesting works
