Backtesting MT4 vs MT5

To add comments, please log in or register


Which one is better for back testing accuracy with expert advisers?

My expert adviser is used on the minute one timeframe for 8-15 pip take profits depending what the average true range calculations are on my expert adviser.

I have heard that MT4 cannot back test multi time frame expert advisers accurately yet metatrader 5 can very effectively.

I have seen different results from mt4 strategy tester and mt5 strategy tester results.

I want to know what other peoples experiences have been so far.

From my knowledge MT5 strategy testing is far superior in every way.

What are your thoughts?

i dont know if accuracy does matter between two (all OHLC data are known), but i experienced some difficulties in both platform while using algorithms based on tick data directly. i guess the tick simulation is not realistic enough...
