Re: GOLD

Hi Huangwh88, Thanks for the further explanation. Yes, you will get errors while back-testing with 'Open price' mode (as described in Step 2 of https://tickstory.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=809#p3663). This is not a problem. Continue to follow through the rest of the steps to copy all the setting...

Re: GOLD

Hi Huangwh88, Everything seems to look ok as far as your FXT output goes. In the first instance, you may want to try un-checking 'Use dates' in the Strategy Tester as there are instances where this can be a workaround to the 4gb limitation. If you believe the errors you are getting are a result of ...

Re: GOLD

That sounds correct if your MT4 symbol is same as Tickstory's (XAUUSD). You might need to check the FXT and ensure your .FXT files are marked as 'read-only'. Are you able to do 99% back-tests correct with other symbols? If you continue to have problems, could you please send a few more screenshots ...

Re: GOLD

Hi Huangwh88, If you are getting "data mistmatched" messages it means your exported data is not being used. Are you sure you have mapped to your MT4 symbol correctly (eg. "XAUUSD" -> "GOLD")? Thanks. Hi Tickstory, gold appears as 'XAUUSD' in my MT4. When exporting I left the 'map to' box blank. Is ...

Re: GOLD

Hi Tickstory,

I was trying to test gold but got the error as attached. All the forex pairs do not have this problem . Can this be solved by using the correct broker settings as mentioned above? I am referring to post #2 in https://tickstory.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=809

Re: Choosing best timezone for broker (FXOpen)

Thanks Tickstory!

I did not realize there are more options above 'none'.

Re: Choosing best timezone for broker (FXOpen)

Thanks Tickstory.

It seems that Fxopen uses GMT +2/+3 but the shift dates follow the new york dates. All the GMT +2 options in tickstory (athens,jerusalem etc) have shift dates that are different from NY by about 2 weeks.

Is there a way to get the same shift date as NY for this timezone?

Re: Choosing best timezone for broker (FXOpen)

Thank you.

Looks like I exported with the wrong timezone previously. If I re-export and check 'overwrite existing files', both the HST and FXT will be overwritten with the new timezone right?

Choosing best timezone for broker (FXOpen)

Hello,

I am using FXOpen, which uses GMT +2 and +3 with daylight savings.

When exporting, should I choose +2 or +3?

Daylight savings should be YES right?

Among the many locations for each timezone (athens, jerusalem etc), which one should I choose?

Thank you.
