Why does the OPEN PRICE ONLY setting, generates orders at time =0 and at time =21:00?

Once there's no smaller time frames then 1 minute, does the Every Tick method generates prices within an 1 minute bar at a 1 min time frame?

Sorry, for delay. Anyway you should investigate your EA logic.

dear all,

I tested my EA and my modeling quality is 90% (start from 1st february 2008 till 14th july 2008).

with use trade: "everytick...."

but when I extended the period of testing (older than january 2008),

the modeling quality shown "N/A".

Could anyone explain to me how the MetaTrader calculate the Modeling Quality so the result of modeling quality could change dramatically like the data I shown above??

Many thanks for your help.

Rgds,

Michael

Hi,

Since most of the articles regarding testing of trading algos are old I wonder if there is any updates. Particularly I'm interested in finding out if I can download the sample of rearranged (bootstrapped) forex rates to MetaTrader 4 and apply testing on those samples?

Thanks

I think that this subject needs a more clear explanation ... some parts of the article can not be understood easily.
