I was using the strategy tester last year without
difficulty. Now I can't seem to get it to work. It's a new installation and an
upgrade to build 625. Bars just won't appear in the chart. And I indicate the
spread should be 2 pips yet Mt4 claims the spread is 140 pips spread. What am I doing wrong? Please
see the picture below.
That is the contract specification and is for information only. It has nothing to do with the the strategy tester's operation
You have the spread set to 2 points, not pips. You can see that the symbol has 5 digits so 2 pips will be entered as 20 points.
Maybe you are confusing the tester.
You tell it to skip up to 19th April, which is a Saturday and the last data is from Friday 18th.
I'm surprised it does anything in visual mode
You have a good point about the skip to date. I assumed the
skip to date would only be used if the skip two button was pressed. I have put
in a reasonable date but that did not solve the problem.
Next I used the skip to button and it did produce some
results. Notice on this one minute chart the date spans from February 1 -- November 9. Something's got to be broken here.
Note that I have changed the color scheme and layout from
the original picture for legibility.
