Thanks in advance,

Hi Martin,

I bough recently new indicator and I have tried to test with binary tester and unfortuantely I can't get data for different timeframe then default. I'm trying to use following instruction (picked period = M5 in strategy tester but I need data from other periods as well):

double Trend = iCustom(NULL, Period_M15, Market\\Indicator_name", "", 6,3.0,"", true, 7, 0)  - doesnt work

double Trend = iCustom(NULL, Period_M5, Market\\Indicator_name", "", 6,3.0,"", true, 7, 0)  - works

Coudl you advise on this ?

Please note that using standard EA and the same iCustom call I can get data for all periods.

Regards,

Lukasz

Hi Likasz,

did you get any error messages?

If you get the correct values in any mql4-code you should also get them by using an indicator for Binary-Option-Strategy-Tester - it is only an indicator to bring up the values to the tester.

Which indicator did you use? Is there a free version of the indicator?

I will contact you via PM.

Regards,

Martin
