    Hi Traders,

    With risk diversification in mind, I am trying out different Reactor settings.

    I have made a few parameters slightly tighter in an attempt to generate better strategies.

    My question is; how long do you let the Reactor run, generating zero valid strategies, before you concede that the settings are too strict?

    10,000 calculated strategies?

    50,000 calculated strategies?

    100,000 calculated strategies?

    More?…

    Cheers, Simon.

    Normally I would stop and give it more air after 10-15 min of no results. But yeah, it reaches 10k and no results are there, you better stop it, unless you do not want to run it for 10 hours and get a couple of strategies at the end.

    I like what Petko says that it is better to have more strategies to choose from.

    Also, you can generate more but get stricter in the additional criteria in the collection where you can filter more the strategies.
