Strategy tester cache

Alon D  

In the documentation, it's said that MT5 caches optimization results for each testing parameters such as period in order to not repeat them.

What if my "to date" is today's date?

Is it still cached and not retested?

Because new data will come until the end of the day and I want the testing to run again every few hours and not rely on old information...

You can delete the tester cache by going to File->Open Data Folder then go to directory Tested and delete the content in it

Does that mean that I'm right?

If I test that way, the test will not take into account the last few hours?

I think it will, but it will use cached data from last test so it will perform additional test only on the new data and keep the cached results from the hours being available in the previous test
