For several days now my Strategy Tester does not work in MetaTrader. I have researched the problem and it seems that the data from the server is the problem so I have downloaded the history again and I get the same problems. The statements below are from the Strategy Tester's journal. Also when I look at the other tabs like Optimization Results and Optimization Graph I do not see anything.

2007.12.28 15:01:58 There were 1 passes done during optimization, 1 results have been discarded as insignificant
2007.12.28 15:01:58 Moving Average: optimization stopped
2007.12.28 15:01:53 Moving Average: optimization started
2007.12.28 15:01:53 TestGenerator: unmatched data error (volume limit 64 at 2007. 12.26 20:30 exceeded)
2007.12.28 15:01:53 TestGenerator: unmatched data error (volume limit 142 at 2007. 12.21 20:00 exceeded)
2007.12.28 15:01:53 TestGenerator: unmatched data error (volume limit 24 at 2007. 12.20 03:00 exceeded)
2007.12.28 15:01:53 TestGenerator: unmatched data error (volume limit 32 at 2007. 12.20 02:00 exceeded)

What are possible solutions to this problem?

 
Synthetic Bars - A New Dimension to Displaying Graphical Information on Prices
The main drawback of traditional methods for displaying price information using bars and Japanese candlesticks is that they are bound to the time period. It was perhaps optimal at the time when these methods were created but today when the market movements are sometimes too rapid, prices displayed in a chart in this way do not contribute to a prompt response to the new movement. The proposed price chart display method does not have this drawback and provides a quite familiar layout.

Same problems for me also, metaquotes don't care one bit. They ignore all my emails. Keep that market maker $$$ rolling in though ;) That's the way and their only customers! Just remember that. I have not had history center or backtester working as it should for months now and no longer able to download M1 data from metaquotes.

There was/is an EA that collects tick data - I think it then may allow backtesting in a more accurate and working way but not really sure.

'Break Through The Strategy Tester Limit On Testing Hedge EA'

I have the EA somewhere here and should still be on codebase...I think...

volume limit error is likely to be with the EA though I think. I was having many different errors I never had before but when I have no errors I am still having poor backtest results of 25% modelling quality when I've downloaded updates from the metaquotes history center.

Did that happened after you downloaded new history?

It happened also to me. For me it looks like it is better not to download history from the download center at all.
