You don´t have the history data needed to display a visual chart for the selected period.
Make sure you have downloaded all data for the dates & timeframe(s) you are using first OR that you are connected to internet when starting the tester and you will be ok.
Also if you run Vista or Windows 7 run MT4 + MetaEditor as an administrator or you might encounter trouble with saving downloaded data in you program-folder creating the need for the client to download new data each session.
Also the history data are saved server-wise in your client meaning that if you for example switch from Demo-server1 to Demo-server2 you will have to re-download all data.
I need help too: although I start the program as an administrator, I download the data before running the test, etc. I get Waiting for Update error message on the Stategy tester on Metatrader4.
It has been happening to me from time to time. Then other times it doesn't happen. Maybe there is some cache that needs to be cleaned out, but I don't know about it.
Non of these solve my problem as I also have the same problem. Any more ideas please.
Where did you get your data from ?
When you open a M1 chart for the Symbol you want to test and scroll back to the date you are trying to test from do you have bars on your chart ?
