Re: v1.7 Released!

I have now tried two other EA's also and I get the same problem where the profit in the optimizer is larger than when I run it as a backtest with the same parameters. The size of the history file is only +- 1.5 GB. Are you sure the optimizer uses the correct spread? I use it with my setting as "Curr...

I purchased Tickstory instead of Birt's Tick Data Suite because of the big price difference. Don't tell me now that I still need to purchase Tick Data...

Re: v1.7 Released!

What is the use of the Lite version if it can only run on old versions of MT4? All MT4's get updated automatically and the current build is 950. So there is no way to test the software before deciding to buy it!
