while backtesting and optimizing I realized that something must have changed the way mt4 uses/handles the fxt-file - am I right?
I have created the fxt-file myself (Birt's script) and first I launched the mt4 by Tickstory Lite and I get what you see in the
left column: Modeling quality: 0.99 and Ticks modeled: 40684579 - Then I started the mt4 again directly and run the same EA with the same setup, same time (2 years) and I get the
right column: Modeling quality: n/a and Ticks modeled: 40684579 (same amount of ticks)?
Having the same amount of ticks (40684579) does this mean the mt4 now (b628) uses the tickdata (fxt-file) even it was not created on the fly by itself? Must be - no?
As far as I remember if another program (TickStory, Bit's Earview) created the fxt-file mt4 refuses to use (file not found) it and has to be launched by one of the programs.
