Hi all, I'm facing a problem when using strategy tester. As the picture attached shows, it just ignore my TP and SL and go ahead with the trade. Is there any solution for this problem. I'm using MT5, build 2085. Tks!
The attached is a bad strategy for testing only (don't actually trade it). On axitrader it won't open during live trading but it will open during demo trading and in the strategy tester (yes, I have a smiley face, enabled auto trading, etc.) It was generated with  fxpro quant. I...
A few sentences in advance before I come to my question: unlike in live trading, I usually don't give much attention to the "official" balance that I get in the strategy tester via AccountInfoDouble(ACCOUNT_BALANCE). The reason behind this is that - with a low spread ECN broker - I need to emulate...
Hi, I know it is possible to know if an optimization is running using MQLInfoInteger(MQL_OPTIMIZATION), but is it possible to know which kind of optimization it is (e.g. genetic or complete)? Thank you, Tuche.
I'm having a strange anomaly with the Strategy Tester. I have coded a very simple EA that places Buy and Sell stops with SL and TP values. The Volume is calculated to use the difference between the Buy and SL in order to limit the risk to -1% of the account balance as per popular recommendations...
Hi, What is the best method to stop interference when running EA on multiple pair? I'm getting wrong indicator from the wrong pair on my chart. Would something like below do the trick by using _Symbol == _Symbol ??   if(BuySignal>=NumberOfSignal && _Symbol == _Symbol)     {      SellBuy(BuyAmount...
Hi, I am running some optimisations, and with some more aggressive settings, the algorithm performs very good, but when I do a single run, it turns out that stop out occurs. What would be good, is not to include the original score of how good the algorithm performed, but in case it was terminated by...

I have switched brokers and wish to continue to use several EA that have been purchased via the Market.  Do I: 1) use the existing MT4 terminal with the EA currently installed for the new broker/account ( I tried to pull up new broker but it doesn't appear after search), or 2) use a new MT4 terminal...
Hi guys, I'm facing some issues while optimizing EAs using MT5. I'm testing a lot of instruments for some EAs. Always using "Every tick based on real ticks". And after sometimes my Windows install just got kind of stucked and real slow. For the last, before it demands a clean W10 install, when I've...
