Re: BTCUSD Backtest Issue

Hi Acosma,

There may be some residual data files in your <MT4 Data Folder>/tester/history folder. Please all *.fxt files have been removed, other than the one that contains the 6 months of data.

Thanks.

Re: Symbol properties are not being loaded

Hi Gu00hero, The "Load from FXT" by design only loads the account information. If you wish to automatically get symbol information, it can be done simply by selecting the symbol from the "Map to" field. If there is a good use-case for loading all the symbol information from the FXT as well, we could...

Re: 1 minute csv data

Hi Yasha, You're welcome to share your analysis method/EA here. The data is provided as-is from Dukascopy. The data represents the trading activity that has occurred on their platform including any days that they may have had a trading gap. As you go back to earlier years, you will find that this ac...

Re: EURGBP tick data error

Hi Adamwu, The numbers shown in your Excel screenshot don't look correct at all. These are not the numbers that Tickstory generates on our side. The timestamp seems out of order (cell sorting?) and the prices are way out (should be ~0.9). To discount that your spreadsheet is formatting/changing the ...

Re: Cant use the history Download from tickstory

Hi Rendy,

This error may have occurred due to the data not being available at the time you requested. If you try the same download again, it should be working now for that particular date range.

Thanks.

Re: Slow visual back-testing speed

Hi Lorraine, Do you see the slider bar in the Strategy Tester that is just to the right of the "Visual mode" checkbox? This sets the speed of the visual back-test. Slide it to the right to make it faster, left to make it slower. If you just want it to back-test the fastest and get the final report, ...

Re: Metatrader 4 build 1330

Hi Marcelo, The most recent Tickstory v1.9.6.2 (i.e. the version you should already have - just check Help -> About ) does support MT4 Build 1330. There is no need to roll-back your MT4. Please launch as usual and everything should be fine. As for the settings for export, in most cases you can leave...

Re: Highs and Lows and Time for Candles has turned to Zero

Hi Thomas: What would happen if I were to run more than 1 MT4/Strategy Tester at the same time? Would that require exactly double the memory and would each one cause the other to be more likely to crash? Not necessarily. MT4 is a 32-bit program which means that it can only address 4gb worth of memor...

Re: Highs and Lows and Time for Candles has turned to Zero

Hi Thomas, What you can do is have several MT4 terminals each with a subset of data (for example, 1st terminal=2015-2018, 2nd terminal 2018-2021, etc). This will also ensure that you are not over-fitting your strategy. Given that you are using 500 day moving averages, I am guessing that your trading...

Re: Highs and Lows and Time for Candles has turned to Zero

Hi Thomas, It sounds like your data is back-filling from your broker. Could you please log out of your terminal ( File -> Log into Trade Account ->Enter an incorrect password). This will prevent it from happening. After that, you will need to re-export your data range and try again. You shouldn't se...
