Can you _test_ an EA for the future ? in Strategy Tester on MetaTrader5 not with a broker ? Not only in the past ? I use free EAs like Roman5 and I cant test it for the future why ? Do you know a free EA that I can test for the future in markets...

can you trade with EA in the future, for future date, for example from today to 2014 ? is it possible or not ? I dont understand, I'm a novice in that so that is why I ask, I cannot evolve without you.

Of course it's not possible. Future doesn't exist yet, how can you get data from future ?

but how can you earn money with an EA with past results, a robot will play on markets for now and earn money for a period ahead of you, you cannot earn money for past results, because markets wont allow to see litttle amount and big amount, if you see them completly in the past, just bid always on high always, when I trade myself with my hand and my eyes, it is for the now. Explain me how we earn money with EA, if it is ever possible..

Ok, now I see what you mean. You are talking about the Strategy Tester, but about a forward test on a demo account. You simply have to attach the EA to a chart and lets it run.
