MT5 backtest

To add comments, please log in or register


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!!!
