                                                   Combined Trading System report causes hang


2013-02-11 11:39:28


After running a "Combined Trading Systems" analysis, when clicking on any of the "Report" buttons on the results grid, the Reportit window opens momentarily but then the entire system just hangs and I have to quit and restart Quant Share.
Anyone else noticed this?

Please wait until the process completes before clicking on "Report".

I wait for the Combined Trading System analyze function to complete but then when I click on a Report it never loads - I have waited several minutes. Then clicking on any window causes QuantShare to hang and it needs to be re-started.

Does this not occur when you try it? Does the report load correctly when "Report" button is clicked in the Combined Trading Systems window?

Suggestion 1: Show some loading bar/activity indicator when the Report is loading so the user has an idea of long it will take.
Suggestion 2: Clicking on a window while the report is loading should not cause the entire program to hang.

Incidentally, if I try to load a report from Simulator -> Tools -> Trading System Report, it loads fine

Please send the last trace file to support email. This file can be found under the "Trace" directory of "QuantShare" path.

I 've also had 'hang' issues when I running 'too many' systems through the combined tool.

Unfortunately the issue I'm experiencing happens even if there is only one system run in the combined tool. The hang is only caused when I try and view the resulting report, not from just pressing the "Ananlyze" button

The issue was caused by some trading systems where some calculations take a lot of time. This will be fixed in the next release. Thank you for reporting this.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
