RealTest Coders Workshop (MEL Quant Traders SIG) - May 2024

RealTest Coders Workshop (MEL Quant Traders  SIG)

Monday 13 May 2024 at 8.00pm (AEST)

This is an online only meeting.

A new series of events from the MEL Quant Traders SIG.

Purpose:  This workshop is designed for ATAA members and visitors who are already using RealTest software and wish to join a workshop group to build knowledge and share experiences.



8:00 – 8:05 Chris Meakin - Intro

8:05 to 8:30 All – Continuing on with the XTO rotational code Robert Grigg posted in the forum last month. There was some discussion towards the end of this topic last month about using/optimising other indicators. I know some of you have been exploring the code some more recently and this is an opportunity to present your findings.

XTO code and subsequent discussions can be found here:

8:30 – 8:50 All – who’s been doing what; questions for the group; anyone seeking a coding “buddy” or two.

8:50 – 9:00 All – call for someone to be first speaker next month.


We envisage that participants in the workshop will:

  • Share and discuss code they are developing.
  • Share tips on features they are using in RealTest.
  • Discuss optimal use of some of the RealTest features.
  • Discuss more complex code snippets.
  • Discuss problems they are experiencing where others may be able to assist.
  • Discuss transition issues from other software such as Amibroker.
  • Develop “code buddies” as appropriate.

To make our Zoom meetings as productive as possible we request that participants:

  • Join the meeting with audio on mute, their video (preferably) ON, and with their full name showing (if you are displaying a nickname or initials only you can right click your personal image in zoom and then click ‘rename’).
  • Be prepared to speak at each meeting to ask questions or provide a reply.
  • Be registered on the RealTest Forum and be reasonably familiar with it.
  • We want the workshop to be highly interactive!

The meeting will be chaired by Chris Meakin.

At this stage we have scheduled six workshop meetings to be held only on Zoom.  We will generally schedule them on the second Monday of each month at 8:00 pm Syd/Melb time  (to give members in western states a better chance of attending.)
