I have been using strategy tester for a long time with no problems. Just yesterday I had to do a system restore (windows 7) and now I get this message when I try to run strategy tester with a 5M time frame. " 2013.02.08 12:46:37 TestGenerator: internal error because the file not opened ". I have never seen this message before. Can someone help? I have redownloaded all history data for EURUSD, did refresh etc. And still keep getting this message. Help!

 
Buying into the NZDUSD dip

Buying into the NZDUSD dip

This is another rather high risk trade, buying right into a dip.  The potential gains are quite high with little downside. If price breaks lower, it is an instant close. The question is why does it look like price will go higher. First off, we see a major sell off. The overlapping bars are quite big, which shows that for the past hour, sellers are closing out with new sellers and possible existing buyers turning to sell.

Yep,  I can help. Find your MT4 folder, then navigate to the   tester/history  folder and delete the fxt file(s) that are in there . . . that should fix it.

Thank you very much. Your suggestion worked liked a charm. I keep learning secrets.
