LifeHack Balance Equity:

Author: Vladimir Karputov

Vladimir,

thanks for the useful indicator. Should be possible to make it compatible with the tester strategy ( it works only in real time ).

This indicator works well in the strategy tester.

You need to: add an indicator "LifeHack Balance Equity" to the graph, then right click on the graph and select "Templates" -> "Save Template" -> enter the name "tester".

After that, you can run the Strategy Tester for any Expert Advisor.


LifeHack for Traders: Indicators of Balance, Drawdown, Load and Ticks during Testing:

Introduction

You may run visual testing in the MetaTrader 5 Strategy Tester for different purposes. For example, sometimes you may want to see how the balance and equity of a trading account were changing during testing. Sometimes, you may need to visually monitor the possibility of trend emergence while testing in the "Every tick based on real ticks" mode. It means a separate LifeHack indicator is required in each case. We will run different indicators in the MetaTrader 5 Strategy Tester, while saving the chart template as tester.tpl (the template of a chart, on which testing results are displayed).

The common rules for the use of indicators in the tester:

  1. Run one of the LifeHack indicators on the chart.
  2. Save the template as tester.tpl.
  3. Start visual testing.

This indicator does not store history - it displays data online.
