Hi, does someone know how to import tick data in MT4 to make a 99.9% backtest without using a commercial software? I tried with Tickstory free but it doesn't work with build above 545...I struggled all day to find a solution but without success, so I decided to open a topic, this could also help others...
I finally was able to do the backtest with tickstory data. Some things:
I was not able to do the backtest with 8 years because, even if I have enough space on the hd, the file was probably too much big to work properly in mt4. I did the test with 6 months.
I set max number bars (in Option -> Chart) to 250000, it probably
served to load all history data and make the backtest work properly.
Note: 99% number is not visible. The result shows n/a instead of 99,9%. But we can deduce that quality is 99% if error bar is totally green.
Attached the link of the tutorial for tickstory, it could be useful for someone who is trying to do this.
