A must ! Before using it or asking any question : please read the Online Help (Also accessible by F1 on your MT5 platform)
As noted by erdah, SendNotification, SendMail, SendFTP don't work in Strategy Tester (of course).IndicatorParameters() doesn't work in StrategyTester.OnChartEvent() in Strategy Tester.CopyTicks() function doesn't work on Strategy Tester.
Running optimization from command line : https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/13468
Announce of the launch : MQL5 Cloud Network launched.
Some useful topic about usage of the Cloud :
Error message : endless loop detected in OnInit functionHow much it will cost !
As Providers (agents)
Work in progress, stay tuned !
What is about my source when i test it in the cloud ?
I mean, is it save ?
You don't read the FAQ about Cloud ;-)
Firstly, all data exchange between a computing ordering customer and
agents is encrypted. Secondly, a testing agent does not save a code of a
submitted program on a drive. So, it cannot be captured on the
computer that performs calculations. Besides, the agents themselves are
protected from the attempts to penetrate their execution environment and
capture data from their memory.
Thus, all necessary measures are taken to protect computing ordering customer data.
thank you for this summary. You are right, did not read it. Now i did and have one more question:
The cloud power can only be used or can save most time, when it comes to optimization.
I mean, for a single test run there is no benefit by using the cloud (except there is more powerful CPU installed than my own)
Can you confirm this ? Or is there some secret or magic concurrency method behind ? Thank you
I asked this because i have a strategy using more than 1 symbol which takes much time for a single.
So i thought to use the cloud, but may be in my case there is no benefit...
The bars reach up to but not include the current date which is very frustrating because you always like to test the latest data, specialy when the expert is a daily trader. It was possible in mt4 if I remember well. I hope Metaquote would let us test until the current day in the near future, It doesn't seem too difficult to implement.
