Hi

I have an EA that enters its first position when a trendline is crossed.

I have 2 instances of the MT4 platform on my computer.

The EA works perfectly well in live and demo trading on both platforms. 

However, strategy testing of this EA only works on one of the platforms.

On the other platform the EA starts in Strategy Tester but then stops as soon as the trendline to trigger the first order is hit.

Would greatly appreciate any advice.

Thank you.

Ok thanks. Will try that.

I'm away from that computer at the moment but will let you know what I find when back again.

Cheers

Hi Alain,

Your suggestion was perfect. Turns out to be a funding issue. All I needed to do was increase the leverage.

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Cheers,
