Why MT4 tested the EA for only 1 year when I selected 14 years?

I testes an EA, and I selected 14 years for the test (2000 to 2014) and it only make 81 trades. I checked diary and all trades are made in 2014. ¿What happened here? (I select do the test from 2000)

Except mbi chart only controls ram usage. You need max bars in history

Sometimes you have to restart MT4 to make it see the new history
