In MT5 I've managed to automatically load a template (tester.tpl) after backtesting finished, in order to show my indicators and see where my expert traded.
However, in MT4 this doesn't seem to work. If I manually load tester.tpl, all my indicators show properly, so my template is fine. After the backtesting finished, no chart is loaded. I also noticed that if I start backtesting in MT4, one of the first journal outputs is:
2015.05.05 08:36:07.399 Tester: template 'C:\Program Files (x86)\MetaTrader 4\templates\tester.tpl' applied
Why is this applied at the beginning, shouldn't it be applied AFTER backtesting is done?
I also noticed that there isn't an option "Open Chart" and "Auto Open Chart" in MT4's backtesting -> results/report -> context menu. Is automatically opening templates after backtesting simply not supported in MT4, or is it done differently to MT5 (maybe a different template file name)? Any help would be appreciated.
Have you been able to finish this task. I would love to test the program on my ea's. It's such a hastle having to type in every setting. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org Can you share?
