I want to test an EA in tester with my own tick data. What I did:
recorded ~3.2M EURUSD ticks the last months. I ran simple_csv2fxt script with this tick
data and it created a EURUSD1_0.fxt file and a EURUSD1.hst file. The script tells me
that it added 1.7M ticks and finalized 54000 bars.
- Why 1.7M ticks? The file consists of 3.2M ticks. Is it because of a lot of ticks occur in the same second?
My tick data:
I copied the both files to C:\MetaTrader4\tester\history\. Then I choose EURUSD and my EA in tester, choose "every tick" and period M1 and ran the test.
- How can I be sure, that tester uses my own ticks / .fxt file?
- Is there a documentation or a tutorial how to use tester with custom tick data?
Thanks a lot,
