It would be nice to have the ability to run strategy optimization (determining the best combination of parameters), Monte Carlo simulation, etc. Any plans on back testing improvements?

The question above had been asked previously in 2014 in the following post, where you stated that you had no near term plans for any of the feature suggestions - https://www.sierrachart.com/SupportBoard.php?ThreadID=6816

Are there plans to add any of these features? Running back tests with different values for parameters is essential for testing automated trading strategies, and the ability to do this automatically would be very useful.

Thank you.

We would expect optimization to hopefully come within the next 6 to 9 months.
