RLE: Wondering how reliable is MT4 Strategy Tester.

To my surprise results are not the same.

What did you set for spread? Always specify Tester-SpreadDon't use current

The spread is constant during the run. It is the current spread for the pair (your broker,) at the moment you start the test.

If you start the test on the weekend, the current spread is likely to be very large.

Most brokers with variable spread widen considerably at end of day (5 PM ET) ± 30 minutes. My GBPJPY (OANDA) shows average spread = 26 points, but average maximum spread = 134. The charts show Bid prices only. Turn on the Ask line to see how big the spread is, Tools → Options (control+O) → charts → Show ask line.

Here there is the multi time frame version.

With multi time frame I mean thath it draws support and resistance in the choosen timeframe (OTF = Other Time frame)
For example if you choose on 1 minute chart the Input parameter 5 minut you'll support/resistance of 5 minute chart painted on 1 min chart.


In the below chart you can see that after Neighborhood bars from a min/max the indicator draw the support/resistance line segment.

The figure show the parellel between SupportResistenzeGioMTF.mq5 applied on timeframe 1 min with input parameter OTF=5' Neighborhood=10 NBar=50

and  SupportResistenzeGio.mq5 with input Neighborhood=10 NBar=50 applied on timeframe 5'


Note that a min/max could be classified Support/Resistance only after Neighborhood bars from it!



Brilliant! Grazie!!

Hello.  I have a problem. I'm a starter trader. I opened a trading account with the broker ALPARI. I also downloaded 2 EA robots there / Legend EA , EUR/USD, M15 , and Envelope EA , USD/CHF, M5 /.
From the beginning, 14 days PC has not opened the transaction.  
I have on PC panel in the top right corner SMILE  and - AUTO TRADING-  is white. If I click - Expert Advisors- Strategy Tester - then there is a GREEN  LINE.

Maybe you can give advice and what should I must to change? 

Regards,
Toomas
