Yes. The validator always used to stress test using bigger lot sizes and negative margin but I think it is not using the normal lot sizes anywhere in the tests thats why we are getting the error "there are no trading operations". 

Yes you got right. For some reason Automatic validator starting its test with negative margin. If you have some print command  on CheckMoneyForTrade()  then it will show Log file size exceeds. And if no print command on then it shows there are no trade operations.

Syed Oarasul Islam: trade with 100 lot against a deposit of 100000? Isn't it violating what the EA is supposed to do? My EA is is set to 0.01% risk

100 lots, account balance, and percent risk is meaningless - you are missing two other values.

If you are worried about margin and leverage, you are not controlling your risk. Never risk more than a small percentage of your account, certainly less than 2% per trade.

In code (MT4): Risk depends on your initial stop loss, lot size, and the value of the pair.
  1. You place the stop where it needs to be - where the reason for the trade is no longer valid. E.g. trading a support bounce the stop goes below the support.
  2. Account Balance * percent/100 = RISK = OrderLots * (|OrderOpenPrice - OrderStopLoss| * DeltaPerLot + CommissionPerLot) (Note OOP-OSL includes the SPREAD, and DeltaPerLot is usually around $10/pip but it takes account of the exchange rates of the pair vs. your account currency.)
  3. Do NOT use TickValue by itself - DeltaPerLot and verify that MODE_TICKVALUE is returning a value in your deposit currency, as promised by the documentation, or whether it is returning a value in the instrument's base currency.
              MODE_TICKVALUE is not reliable on non-fx instruments with many brokers.
  4. You must normalize lots properly and check against min and max.
  5. You must also check FreeMargin to avoid stop out
Most pairs are worth about $10 per PIP. A $5 risk with a (very small) 5 PIP SL is $5/$10/5=0.1 Lots maximum.

I agree those steps you mentioned must be followed and are good advice's. Thanks. I did followed them very well in my EA.

My EA is not trading with 100 lot but the Automatic validator is. EA's risk is set to 0.01% but the Market's Automatic Product validation tester is not following the risk set in the parameters. I am trying to validate it for the market to sell my product. Its for MT5.

My EA went through autovalidation after I replaced OnTick () with OnStart (), and then I returned everything back and once again passed...

I tried it. After replaced Ontick() with OnStart() then it passed. But when I tried with Ontick() the second time it failed. Am I missing something? Do I have to submit when it passed and the try to with a different file name? This solution sounds strange but if it works then I am speechless :D
