Trying to check a few simple optimizations for percent profit and the optimizer just keeps spinning. does not seem to be working. also shrinking window is being used.

There are not enough details about the "few simple optimizations". Have you updated the DataSet? Data load may be still in progress. What are the parameters, the data range and other Strategy settings? Attaching some screenshots could help.

I am using the building blocks. I was trying to run to following.

constants:
SP 500 data, 20 yr.
ROC 100 days
Positions 6
spy over 80 ema
Bars held 100 days

Variable:
% Profit 1 to 200 by 1

The optimizer would not work. I tried again this morning without success.

What do you mean ROC 100 days? What Building Block rule? Can you share a screen shot of the design surface?

Also, did you first try optimizing on a single symbol instead of the entire S&P 500 (which is about 1000 stocks with all the delisted and stocks that went out of the index?)

"Would not work" just does not work. Can you take a screenshot to illustrate what's going on there (data being collected, an error, whatever)?

OK that's a start. What's happening with the Optimization dialog then?

Normally when I run studies like this it only takes about 20 minutes or so to get the results. some of the more complicated studies can take hours to get results. I would expect this one to take about 20 min. However, on this one (pic above) the optimizer wheel keeps spinning and no results are achieved. it does not even give me an estimated time to get the results.

Not sure why but this seems to be working now!

I'm trying to test these simple perameters and the optimizer will not run. This happens often. I would like to use this program but it just dosn't run over half the time. Is there a problem with this below?

I've deleted your new topic as it's duplicate, and moved the post where appropriate (here). Please provide more info:

1. What does it mean it's not running? Can you switch to the Optimization tab which is busy running your optimization?

2. Is this happening on both your machines or just one, and if the latter which one?

3. Can you export the 'problematic' strategies and send us at support@wealth-lab.com? Please upgrade to Build 14, if not yet. For a how to please refer to the Help > Strategy > Strategy Import and Export.
