The new MetaTrader 5 version will be available through the LiveUpdate system.
Thx for the new release.
I've seen a bug that also appeared before in earlier releases in the "Market scanner" part of the backtester.
After a scan I see again the same symbol appearing more than once.
Forum on trading, automated trading systems
and testing trading strategies
It is difficult to learn.You can read/write on the Russian forum using the automatic
translation tool which exists on every post (many users from English/Chinese/etc parts of the forum are using this automatic
If you really want for some post (technical/programming issue/question) to be sent to the Russian forum (to the threads where the
admins are replying on technical questions) - so ask the users to pass your post to Russian forum (because some moderators and users
can read Russian/English, and many members are using automatic translation tool with no
problem at all).But it is much more better if you will use this automatic translation
tool by yourself without asking anyone (on the same way as many people are using it).
I've discouvered a new bug in the backtester. I've added a url with a video that demonstrates the problem.
There's a difference in results when backtesting over a 1 day or 2 days period.
To resume what happens in the video:
first run: using OHLC over 1 day: the backtest shows 2 trades
second run: using OHLC over 2 days: the backtest shows for the most recent day 6 trades
third run: using OHLC (same as first run) : the backtest shows 6 trades
fourth run: using real ticks over 1 day: the backtest shows 2 trades
fifth run: using real ticks over 2 days: the backtest shows for the most recent day 6 trades
sixth run: using real ticks over 1 day (same as fourth run): the backtest shows 6 trades.
I hope the video will clarify the problem.
I've also seen a huge difference between OHLC backtesting and real-tick backtesting; it's like the indicators are wrongly calculated
PS: I've seen the same problem also in the latest beta release 2363
I've noticed another problem in the backtester
I've been setting breakpoints during visual backtesting and I 've seen that the "commission" costs are still not calculated in.
It's not possible to have reliable backtests when this does not work as expected.
I have tested 'real ticks' and OHLC; both have the same problem.
I have also added a url that demonstrates the problems
Thx for your quick reply !
