Hi guys,

Old problem still exists: when attempting to schedule a strategy which runs against an ASCII dataset, Wealth Lab has issues. It is impossible to set the time to run for tomorrow at any time - if you set the run time for 0600 am, as happens with the strategy which creates the ASCII files, it always tries to set the time for the current day at 0600 - which has already passed. If at 0500 you set it to run at 0600 it will not run.

This cropped up somewhere around the beginning of 2013 as it worked flawlessly during 2012.

You may remember that I was trying to implement a cross currency, cross market strategy which requires normalization to the currency in which the portfolio is managed.

On an ASCII dataset, shouldn't the strategy monitor function as a simple scheduling tool?

Thanks,

Hank

No, and I already answered this very question to you back in 2013. Please see my reply #7 here:

Strategy doesn't run in SM on set time
