Hi, 

I need to deb an MQL5 EA using tick data that I would create on purpose, so to understand a strange behaviour i have noticed during real testing.

If I use backtesting or real testing I may not find extreme situations that make the bug happen again.

I know in 2012 it was not possible to backtest in MT5 with tick data other than that provided by MT5 itself. https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/9600#comment_5457186

Has the situation changed?

If not this is still for me a big disadvantage of MT5 respect to MT4...

Is tick data backtesting possible in MT5?

Well, i'm new to MT5, i've full tick data and therefore i'd like to backtest using using my tick data (not randomly generated BID/Ask by Metatrader).
