I would like to know how do I perform a backtest on MT5 based on bollinger bands.
I would like that the MT5 backtest tool tell me when the price touches the BB upper line or lower line, then open an order to opposite side to five minutes then close the order.
Is it very hard to do? Im new on MT5.
Sorry for my bad english :(
Thanks a lot for the help!!!

A must ! Before using it or asking any question : please read the Online Help (Also accessible by F1 on your MT5 platform)
As noted by erdah, SendNotification, SendMail, SendFTP don't work in Strategy Tester (of course).IndicatorParameters() doesn't work in StrategyTester.OnChartEvent() in Strategy Tester.CopyTicks() function doesn't work on Strategy Tester.
Running optimization from command line : https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/13468
Announce of the launch : MQL5 Cloud Network launched.
Some useful topic about usage of the Cloud :
