Please forgive me, I'm relatively new to using the Strategy tester.
I'm trying to test an EA I've written to implement a strategy on GBPCAD. But when I click in the "Symbol" box on the Strategy Tester Settings, I get a drop down list of Symbols, and GBPCAD is not there. I see no options for adding it. GBPCAD is showing up in Market Watch, and I have a GBPCAD chart open.
Can anyone help me?
Did you try scrolling the list up and down ?
I have exactly the same problem...and your solution does not work, sorry to say. There is no scroll bar on the right.
If there were, I think it's fair to say this question would not have been posted.
Dave, did you ever get the answer?
I have exactly the same issue :(
Many years ago I had this problem a few times.
Attach the EA to a chart of the symbol that you want to trade (disable autotrading)
Right click on the chart, click on Expert advisor and then Strategy Tester.
It should open the Strategy tester with the symbol.
