When you run an optimization, you can choose between the Exhaustive or Genetic search methods.
Choosing between exhaustive and genetic search algorithms affects the optimization characteristics.
The exhaustive search will search all possible combinations of the inputs. This option is like the exhaustive search used within TradeStation. In addition, it enables you to use the extensive graphical and history bank capabilities of Optimax.
The genetic search enables the powerful genetic algorithms within TradeStation, and makes additional fields modifiable on this screen.
