Hi Christina,

Thanks for such a great tool...!

It is a really innovative application to use Strategy Tester for immediate testing of different trade strategies...

Just in case for newbies - to use this EA in Strategy Tester...the Allow DLL Option needs to be checked in Tools/Options for the EA to work...(just Allow DLL...not confirm DLL)

Thanks for sharing your great work to make testing new strategies easier.

You need to have this checked because it uses "user32.dll". Thanks.

Lol, I read it too fast and thought you asked a question but you didn't. Thanks for the reminder, I forgot to point that out.
