What is the most efficient way to test a custom indicator? The only way i know is to attach it to active charts and waiting for it to work. Any suggestion would be great.
 
Dollar holds steady vs. rivals, as Fed statement still supports; Russian ruble gains
On Monday the US dollar was little changed against the other major currencies, moving towards five-year highs as expectations for a U.S. rate hike next year continued to support demand for the greenback. The Russian ruble gained ahead of major month-end tax payments in Russia.

You can test an indicator in that? It is my understanding that you can only test EAs in the strategy tester.

In that case, you have to rewrite the indicator as an EA and recompile, which isn't always easy.

You can run any EA in the Strategy Tester and add your Indicator to the chart or o the tester.tpl . . . a word of caution though, the Strategy Tester is for testing EAs so some things do not work correctly for some Indicators.
