There is a BUG on MT5 which appears very often. If you wanna make a forward test, the tester stops after half of the time (depending on your settings when you wanna reset your equity). It happens quite often!!! After that forward test does not continue!

 

I dont know if i am the first who is writing this on the forum, but if not, im wondering why this bug is not removed!!!!

Okay so maybe its not a bug, just a misunderstanding but i will show my problem:

my idea is to optimize backtest. And then make the forward test for resetting equity to proof that this settings would be profitable after some time. So at first i will show the backtest. Then the forward test which should reset the equity after half of the time. The used period is between 2012.01.01-30.06.2014

1. Step Backtest see attached files

I was able to reproduce the error with a different EA using the same settings. The forward testing works fine for me after I disabled visualization.

Br,

I don't know if it can be considered as a bug, but I suggest you to write to Service Desk.

All good now. Solution = Switch off visualization mode before forward test.
