Hi,

Right now I am back-testing my EA. In EURUSD I find a gap or data-missing. I have attached the screenshot. Is there any way to will it up? or Will that gap disturb while back-testing? If I want to test from 2004 means what should I do?

I am using MQL5.com's demo.

With Regards,

Krishna

15 march 2013 is a friday. It's a week-end gap, there is no data missing. Nothing to do with the broker in this case.

It may be related to the start of the week time (many brokers are starting the week in different time).

Anyway - I agree - it is nothing with Metatrader itself.

Of course end/start time can differ from broker to broker, but here we have a 150 pips gap on week-end. To answer the OP, an EA have to deal with such things, that can happen from time to time. Nothing abnormal.
