Hi,

i had two EA produced for me from Mql5 in the past.One was made in 2012 while the second EA was finished June 2013.I tried running some more test using strategy tester on either of them and got these error messages in the journal:

2013.12.07 11:11:09 TestGenerator: current spread 30 used

2013.12.07 11:11:14 TestGenerator: unmatched data error (low value 1.35173 at 2013.11.06 21:15 is not reached from the least timeframe, low price 1.35176 mismatches)

sometimes the spread read 15 used..

I don't understand these errors or how to go round them,what could be wrong since these EA ran strategy tester smoothly in the past.Please what do i do?

I think they are mql4 but made as a result of a Jobs request . . . in the mql5 forum. I'm sure MetaQuotes could have made the whole situation less clear . . . not sure how but I'm sure they could.

That isn't an error, it's just telling you that the current spread is 30 points.

The spread used is the spread on the symbol you are testing at the time you start the test . . . if you want to ue a fixed spread you can set it in the Strategy Tester.


The message about "mismatched data errors" is because your have different data on different timeframes . . . you should get better data, preferably M1 and create the other timeframes from the m1 data.
