NumTotalCycles

Repeat the complete simulation in training or test mode in as many cycles as given by this variable (default = 0 = no repetitions). This is normally used for doing reality checks, plotting histograms, running special Montecarlo simulations or evaluating result statistics dependent on changed parameters or randomized price curves.

TotalCycle

The number of the cycle from 1 to NumTotalCycles. Read/only, automatically set by NumTotalCycles.

LogNumber

When nonzero, appends the given number to the log and image files generated by the simulation. By setting LogNumber = TotalCycle, different log files or charts can be stored for any cycle. Set this variable before calling any function that writes something into the log.

Type:

int

Remarks:

Example:

function run()
{
  BarPeriod = 1440;
  StartDate = 2015;
  NumYears = 1;
  LookBack = 0;
 
// run this simulation 1000 times  
  NumTotalCycles = 1000;
 
// some random trading strategy
  if(random() > 0)
    enterLong();
  else 
    enterShort();
 
// plot the result of every run in a bar graph  
  if(is(EXITRUN))
    plotHistogram("Profits",Balance/PIPCost,250,1,RED);   
}
