If I launch a script for Testing/Trading and then [Stop] it and/or close Zorro, the panel continues to be visible on the screen without the possibility to close it (no closing/ 'cross' button in the upper right corner). I then have to kill that Zorro instance via Task manager.
I tried this in the click():
if (row == -1 && is(RUNNING)) panel(0, 0, 0, 0);
Then pressing [Result] while the script awaits a click on my START button in the panel (while (!START && is (RUNNING)) wait(100); )- works and makes the panel disappear.
However, if I then close Zorro altogether, an instance of Zorro still runs and still has to be killed via Task manager.
I am testing the money management and the "Capital" variable is set. How is MaxDD in % is then calculated?
I cannot see anything describing difference in calculations of this number in the "Performance chapter" - when Capital is set and when not.
Right now, it looks like % is being calculated relative to Gross Wins, rather than Gross Profit. It is appr 2x less than the number calculated manually from a _pnl.csv (with addition of Capital), even with the BALANCE flag set.
As for numbers in _pnl.csv: shouldn't they start from the initial Capital when Capital var is set?
If performance figures were relative to account balance or equity, a rich guy with much money on his account would get a different performance than a poor guy. You normally want to know the perfomance of your strategy, not of your account.
The exception is testing the money management. Then you really need metrics relative to equity, such as the CAGR. For this set up the "Capital" variable. All metrics change then their meaning. Read the "Performance" chapter - all is explained there.
The manual says that this number - in % - is calculated relative to GROSS profit, and not balance or equity - which is the commonly accepted way of doing it.
This of course makes it a much smaller number.
What's the meaning of such a metric?
Also, the numbers exported to a _pnl.csv reflect accumulated profit, without taking into account the starting Capital. Probably, ok if the Capital is not set, but is not "....the daily equity or balance curve" as the manual suggests.
I am new to this so sorry for the stupid questions. I installed Zorro, and want to use IG as broker as thats what I use today. I tried to follow the instructions
https://manual.zorro-project.com/ig.htm - to the best of my abilities (not a tech wiz) but IG does not show up as a option. So first things first, I used this Java version (Windows x86 202.62 MB jdk-8u211-windows-i586.exe)
Can anyone confirm that its the one I should be using? (I installed Zorro on an VPS)
These specific error messages can be ignored. They are coming from the Dukascopy's library (DDS2) and indicate some connection issues (timeouts, server problems, etc.), but the library handles them internally and reconnects if needed.
