Hi there!

Am I doing something wrong?

When the market is closed, I ask ST to run a test ona EA based on "today’s" market data.

To do this, I am setting the dates are shown below. Yesterday for example I did 05/20 > 05/21.

I have played I little bit with these dates with no success.

Is there any hidden process to do this here ?

Regards, 

MRC

I don't think you can do a backtest with today date. It's a limitation of the Strategy Tester.

Yes I was thinking about that, but never tested. However I don't know why there is this limitation on the "today" data.

Probably this limitation is regarding Cloud performance and compatibility, since this limitation removes most of real time data from backtesting, what would be a no cache intensive processing.

In my opinion, and if I'm right, a wise architecture decision.
