    Hi Maxim,

    This link will give you more info about the strategy tester than I will be able to do here: MetaTrader Strategy Tester | metatrader.info. There is 2 parts to this, so just follow the link at the bottom.

    If it is taking a long time, it might be because you have the "Visual Mode" turned on? Try turning that off. I only pay attention to the Results and Graph tabs, I don't watch every order open and close on a chart.....

    To the comments above about the strategy tester not working, that is only true to a certain extent. If you have a crappy broker with a not-trustworthy data feed, yes, the backtest will contain errors. If you have access to a clean feed, then your backtest should, if nothing else, let you know whether or not you have a winner or loser EA without having to forward test for 9 months......

    Funyoo, how were you able to generate the results you have in posts 15 and 16? I have not been able to replicate them......

    Thanks!
    Kat

    Default Executing vForce like EA

    Hello, Funy00,

    I had down loaded vForce like EA v1.1.mq4 into my Program Files/Expert
    folder and it appeared in the Expert Advisor Folders in the Navigator section
    as an .mq4 file. I tried to attach it to the chart as such but it never would
    attach. I have never programmed coded MQL4 or compiled a program with
    the MetaEditor. After a few attempts at compiling it (by making a minor
    change in the coding) it finally compiled and created the .ex4 file and was
    able to attach it to my chart.

    I downloaded MaximF's v201.mq4 version into the same Expert Advisor Folders of the Navigator section and was able to attach it without doing
    a compile. Why did the two versions act differently as far as being able
    to attach them to the charts?


    Thanks,

    daldup

    Thanks for your updated version of vForce like EA v201.mq4. I have downloaded
    it and attached to the eurusd 1 hour chart. Would it be possible for you to code
    in a changeable comment line that would appear in the History log of the trading
    section. I would like to be able to tell which program executed the eurusd pair.

    Thanks for your work.

    Hi Maxim,
    Attached is a pdf that I have from when I was trying to get to grips with the Strat Tester. I didnt end up going to the extreme of creating & deleting a new account.

    Will see if I can track down a better word doc I was given later, that set me up with 90% data quality.

    cheers bt2

    Hello daldup,

    Please clarify what you mean by "changeable comment",-I don't understand this term.

    Default Does this EA play well with others

    High,
    I loaded this EA in my demo account yesterday and it promptly did 12 profitable trades for about 150 pips...very nice. My question is this I seem to remember reading somewhere that it likes to be the only EA runnning on the platform. I ask because I am demoing other EU EA's, do I need to put them on a seperate platform,

    thx
    Nick

    Question

    Hi
    I attached vForce 2.03 to the EURUSD H1 chart in a demo account with Alpari UK, but nothing happens! no order! no action! Just smile!
    I read this thread and in post#1 was mentioned some inidicators, but I'm not sure which indicators I have to put on the chart, and with which setting for those indicators to be applied. Also I changed some parameters for 5 digits price except slippage.

    I appreciate for any help in advance.

    Hello traders.
    Sorry for my bad English ...

    Prime, I also test vForce 2.03 from 2 days and no orders. I noticed in the backtest, that EA signed orders only on Friday and closed the other days of the week.

    In general I like this EA, but will take more tests.

    Thanks funyoo and maximf for EA's in this forum.

    3 weeks, spread = 4:
