This question has already been asked to Renat (CEO of Metaquotes), and unfortunately he answered no, sorry.

You don't read the FAQ about Cloud ;-)

Can someone access my program's code or any other data, if I use MQL5 Cloud Network agents?

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.

Hello angevoyageur,

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...

I am not aware of a solution for "testing only" with Cloud. It works only for Optimization.

hello,


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.

I think it would be great if tester have a data feed from for example TCP/IP socket, I want to test my strategy with MATLAB generated tick data with specific properties and data is online generated in matlab and I want to feed them to tester, I think there is not any way to do this except writing data to file and then generating FXT,.... If I am wrong please correct me

There is no fxt file in MT5. And there is no way to use your own data in the Strategy Tester.

Serious question here, what is the functional difference between "testing" and "optimization" in this case.
