What are the opinions on Stratasearch- anyone using? Is it a valid tool? Seems to take away the tedious part of strategy development, but very few comments anywhere on it-

Anyone have ideas?

just to highlight an old thread - are there any users of stratasearch that frequent these boards of late?

I'm just having a look at this software and would be interested in any comments.

Cheers,

SS is very fast and has an excellent library of preprogrammed scans. To be able to run a custom scan, some knowledge of the SS programming language is needed and this is where you could have some difficulty.
It has a 30 day unrestricted evaluation, you can easily find out if it suits you.

Cheers Kunal,

I'm currently using the software under trial. I like the look, but I'm wondering about the support. The discussion forum in't very lively, but perhaps the email support is better?

Do you use it?

Cheers, Rich!
I used it a long time ago in trial mode, got fed up of being unable to do the scans I wanted. If you have a rough idea of what you want, the same task can be done in Amibroker faster and with more flexibility since Amibroker can use VB too.
The language syntax in both is horrible, but at least AB has a huge archive of past solutions and a user support group to help noobs.
SS is defnitely a diamond in the rough, if only the programming was made easier the developer would have a goldmine on his hands.

hmmm....I'm tempted, though I share your concerns. I love the speed and simplicity at which it runs the scans - but suspect I'd need to learn some language. Reasonable price, mind. Thanks anyway.

Learning the language is'nt the problem, where do you learn it from?
