So, suppose I wanted to try and see if I can do better (or worse) than my EA, is there a functionality to manually place orders on a historical period (say 6 months) and get similar reporting as when using the Strategy Tester

I know you can play back historical data, but is there an option to manually place trades and get the summary report afterwards?

Thanks

Create some chart objects i.e. buttons for buy, sell and close.

Check the state of each button in OnTick() and get your EA to open/close trades accordingly.

Run the EA in visual mode and click the buttons to trade manually.
