Can I change strategy monitor auto run times? On my daily strategies, they run auto at 16:30 CST, but my data is updated by Fidelity at 1800 - can I change my script run times to like 18:30?

I've already requested that ability (especially for our international customers), but no, it's not an option. You can, of course, just close the Stategy Monitor after the market close and open it later so that it runs later.

Yes very useful. Especially the ability to set different strategies to run at different times.
Any updates on this? It has been over a year.

As far as I know it is planned for a future release (not in the upcoming one though).

afaik, this is not on the radar. The solution is as I previously stated.

For international WLD customers, MS123 will release a "Market Manager" for compatible data providers in which the Market Open/Close times are reported on a by-symbol basis. This will help in scheduling runs in the S. Monitor for international markets.

And is this "Market Manager" planned for a future release (not the upcoming one though)?

At the moment, to get around Y! data delays for Australia I have to set the return partial bar setting so it will be interesting to see how this "Market Manager" handles this. Refer to this post:
/Forum/Posts/Yahoo-EOD-data-delayed-30404

(FYI I did raise this with Yahoo, but looks like they haven't addressed the issue yet)

I understand the Strategy monitor as a tool to automate trading, and I believe control over its scheduling is important. With that in mind I would still favour the addition of this feature.

The MM isn't going to make Data Providers return data any differently than they do now. It allows you to specify market times and holidays on a per-symbol (or DataSet) basis. If supported by the Data Provider, those Market Times are used by the S. Monitor for scheduling.

You can also access this "MarketInfo" in a script, so it's really a quite versatile solution; we're not pursuing another one.

Edit -
Actually, Eugene has a better memory than me, and a customized default time does appear on the radar. Nonetheless, the M. Mgr will probably be a more timely solution for Y! and upcoming static and streaming providers.

Update: this has been a feature of WL 6.1.
