I'm not sure of the question here, but let me ask one that is probably the same, only expressed differently. I have several indicators (the really great SSL, for one) that when placed on a chart will bring data from higher timeframes down to lower timeframes. Does anyone know if the new MT5 and its Strategy Tester will allow us to test indicators that use multiple timeframes? This would be a huge boon to us as we attempt an entry on lower timeframes because we see a higher timeframe recycling back into the larger trend. Right now, it's impossible to test those sorts of multi-timeframe strategies with the Strategy Tester in MT4.

 

Thanks.

I am coding a robot, there is 1 EA and 1 indicator, the indicator placed 3 timeframe(chart), it is GBPUSD H1,H4 and D1, the robot placed in GBPUSD H1,

in this case, how to test it by  Strategy Tester ? I think the client terminal donot support it. but I have an idea, create a vitual MT server, then send the ticket data to client software (mt5) quickly, 

then I can test as backforward like   Strategy Tester, is it possible? thanks
