The MetaTrader 5 platform allows developing and testing trading robots that simultaneously trade multiple financial instruments. The built-in Strategy Tester automatically downloads required tick history from the broker's server taking into account contract specifications, so the developer does not need to do anything manually.

In this article we will demonstrate the development and testing of a spread strategy on two Moscow Exchange futures.
