I want to use MT4's tester to test an EA which runs on other investment products by import their history data.

for example, I open history center in MT4 and select "USDJPY ", and import stock's M1 data, such as C, and then get other time frames by converter.

so after that, shall I test an EA on stock data which is imported into USDJPY?

if not, how can?

Thank you!

You can, do you understand the implications of doing this ? swaps ? tickvalue ? min lot ? lot step ?

He means you can, but you should choose a symbol with properties that are similar to the one you are importing.

What I meant was, yes you can . . . but you need to understand how all the incorrect symbol information will affect your calculations in your code . . . you know your code so you are in the best position to understand the implications.
