I am wanting to backtest both weekly and monthly timeframes, but MT4's strategy tester only goes as high as daily. Is it at all possible to backtest higher timeframes?
You can get it to work if you stipulate the timeframe when you code your ea. Don't select anytime frame when coding. Then strategy tester in Mt4 will work for you.
Fritz, could you elaborate on that? I have tried specifying PERIOD_W1 everywhere possible. But, I still see that the trades are acting upon the Daily chart when the tester is set to Daily, and M5 when set to M5, etc., etc...
This would really be great to accomplish.
