Hi all,

I was about to launch a question concerning an issue I am getting at the time of running the strategy tester, the message is the following:

Tester cannot calculate prices.

The actions I am taking is to download tick data from DAX index, from Dukascopy, the EA is running with another assets as EURUSD or GBPUSD.

Do you know what could cause this?

Regards,

Z

The solution for me was to delete the data files for the affected index/currency pair/whatever.....

So (on windows 10 anyway...) go to

C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\<LONG RANDOM STRING OF CHARACTERS UNIQUE TO YOUR TERMINAL>\tester\history\

and delete the relevant file like 'GBPUSD(£)60_0.fxt' for example. You'll then need to download the data again, should do this automatically.

DISCLAIMER: WORKED FOR ME. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU BUGGERING UP YOUR SYSTEM IF YOU CHOOSE TO GIVE THIS AGO! ;)

Hope this helps!
