can you recommend a good strategy tester please?
I am willing to pay for it. The strategy testers I have used don't let me use all the indicators.

Here we talk about MT4/5 Strategy Testers only, since is a Metaquotes website.
Yes, a good strategy tester is MetaTrader 5 (or MetaTrader 4 if it is the case).
If it can't test your indicators, then most probably it was not properly coded! There are exceptions of course, but if properly coded it should work correctly in the Strategy Tester.
Testing trading strategies on real ticks and the explanation is on this post.

You can read this article (TESTING TRADING STRATEGIES ON REAL TICKS).
-------------------Just an example - MT4 and very old builds of MT5: I optimized the EAs from this thread just to find good settings for the pair, I was backtesting them, and I traded on demo for some time just to be sure that EAs are profitable. With new builds of MT5: I will optimize the EAs from this thread to find the settings, and I will backtesting them with 'every tick based on real ticks' - and it will be same as trading by those EA on real account for many months or years!
