I back tested my strategy. When I click Open Chart after the test is done, I saw a black background, green bars, and the trades entry and exits on the bars.
I wanted to visually backtest and make sure that the EA was entering and exiting as I wanted, but I was not able to add any indicators or anything to see the indicators at the time of the trade.
I then saved a template as the same name as the strategy. Now after the backtest, I Open Chart and I can see all my indicators, but I do not see the trades' entries and exits.
I have attached what this screen looks like.
How do I see both?
I have proprietary indicators that I purchased, so unfortunately it is regulated by license so I cannot provide to anyone for testing.
I appreciate your advice!
There are no trades after the backtest, only in the tester window.
Either add your indicators at the start of the backtest, or make a template. Priority is <EAname>.tpl, tester.tpl, default.tpl.
@gooly, You might be right, I will check on that.
@WHRoeder, I did that. Before, I would click Open Chart and the default template (black background with green bar chart) showed the backtet's trades on those bars (the arrows with the lines). I then did what you are suggesting and saved the template as the <EAname>.tpl. Then when I did a backtest, I would click Open Chart, it would only show the indicators and not any arrows of the entries and exits for each trade.
I will take a look at the code and see if ObjectsDeleteAll() is the reason.
