Do you have M1 data for the date range you are trying to test ?  open a M1 chart for Gold and scroll back to the date you are trying to test from in the Strategy Tester,  if you cannot get back to that date you do not have history data,  if you do not have history data how do you expect the Strategy Tester to run ?

I appreciate your response . Hear me out.first i erased the history centre in Mt4. then I downloaded the 1 min data for gold from forex tester website and saved the file in wordpad format. Then i loaded the data. still it wont work. please tell me precisely how to make the back testing work.

Did you open a M1 chart ?  can you see M1 data for the date you want to start from in the Strategy Tester ?  please try this first and report what you find . . .
