Hi

Can anyone here help me explain something about  Optimisering in backtesting ? The number that thats is showed at the green status bar what is that ? like this: 4 / 1280 (3600). What are these number ? 

2nd does the test make all possibly options within the start and stop I have in inputs?

I hope someone can help.

1)  4 / 1280 (3600) = total probability  optimized

2)  start = first value

     step = value increase

     stop = limitation

Thansk but the 4 / 1280 (3600)

4 is the number of test runned ? 1280 the count of test it will make ? But then the 3600 is ? 

 If soo there will be 2400 combinationes NOT tested ?

1280 is the total passes optimization will perform. 4 is already passes performed.  Regards.

it's in ex4 only, unfortunately. In general, could you say it's an error of EA? Or perhaps some error in backtesting data? Test results show 0 mismatched errors and modeling quality 90%.

It could be many things.

And even if it is a error how are you going to change it without the source code?
