    Hi Jynxx,

    You have to use LFH trading simulator (some scripts that you put in the scripts folder). Then when you will use the strategy tester, you will choose LFH trading for the expert advisor, you will click on start, you will see the chart and will apply your template, and finally the required script (just drag the script in the script area to the chart) to open and close orders.

    The hottest news available in today's market will no doubt be the interest rate decisions by the Bank of England (BoE) and the European Central Bank (ECB) today at 11:00 and 11:45 GMT, respectively. As interest rates are one of the primary tools used to value a nation's currency, the impact of these announcements will likely push the GBP and EUR to new extremes in the minutes after they are announced.

    One way for you to back test your system is do it manually by looking back at the charts and testing your system. Yes, this can be time consuming but hey, you need to test your system before putting it to use right? Also, before you keep on trading your system on your live account, I HIGHLY suggest you test it out on a demo account first. This way, you'll be able to see how effective it is in today's environment.
