Hi I am backtesting a EA on Silver vs USD.
So I downloaded the history data in the menu Tools -> history center and download XAGUSD M1 data.
Then i start strategy tester, i set the symbol to Silver and start the test,
However, MT4 always says : No History data Silver1.
What i did wrong here ?
Thank you for you help!
isn't XAG silver ?
or even SILVER1. Weird.
so do we still need to open the offline hst file and put up the M1 charts, before the test ?
The XAGUSD history data is from the "Tool -> history center", I believe its is from meta trader 4.
There is no such "Silver" history data to download.
Then the Symbol 'Silver1' is in strategy tester and i believe is provided by meta trader 4 as well.
Do you know how match them up?
If don't know what you mean with offline hst file.
I add a new symbol to Market Watch (USDSGD), never used, never open a chart for this symbol.
I run the ST with some EA on this symbol and it works, data are downloaded automatically.
