Expert: not enough money

Hi,

I'm uploading an EA into the marketplace,

and the backtest shows me: Not enough money.


The default start lot of the EA is 0,01 lots (no marti), when I look into the backtest journal I see, that the EA is being tested with 0,2 lots.


Why, can someone explain?

You might want to check the pair/symbol''s specification for minimum lots.
Have you tried your EA with other symbol too ?
Good luck.

Thanks, but I have no limitations in the EA for currencies (aso).

Now, that I decreased TP and SL in the default settings, backtest trades with 0,1 lots (not 0,2 lots).

Still, I get the same error presented.

You could also print out balance information during backtest verification.
There might be bugs/errors on mql5 EA verification processes.

The first parameter is the symbol name, the values of the second function parameter can be one of the identifiers of ENUM_SYMBOL_INFO_INTEGER, ENUM_SYMBOL_INFO_DOUBLE and ENUM_SYMBOL_INFO_STRING.
