New article Testing and Optimization of Expert Advisors has been published:

The article provides a detailed description of the process of testing and optimizing Expert Advisors in the MetaTrader 4 Strategy Tester. The importance of such information and the need for this publication cannot be underestimated. A lot of users who only get started with the MetaTrader 4 trading platform have a very vague idea of what and how needs to be done when working with Expert Advisors.

Almost every day (quite literally) the forum gets filled with beginning users' questions on how to install an Expert Advisor in the terminal, how to get started with an Expert Advisor, what is optimization and how it can be performed in the MetaTrader 4 Strategy Tester, what is forward testing, etc.

The proposed article gives simple and clear answers to all of these questions and provides a slightly more professional approach to handling these issues using a specific example. As the article unfolds, you can find links to the relevant articles and pages of the MQL4.community website for further, more detailed familiarization with testing and optimization processes.
