You can also upload your indicators and template for trading in the Strategy Tester.

In mt4 this is done directly on the visualization chart. In normal mode, you transfer the necessary indicators from the navigator to the tester's chart.

In mt5 this is done differently:

  1. Open a regular standard chart
  2. Put on it all the necessary indicators and configure them.
  3. On the chart where the indicators are installed, right-click - Templates - Save Templates
  4. In the strategy tester on the visualization graph in the top menu Charts - Templates - Load Templates
