Re: MT4 OrderSend Error 3

Hi Elliot, I assume you're referring to "OrderSend Error 3" message? If so, this error is due to "ERR_INVALID_TRADE_PARAMETERS". It means you have either: 1) Specified the incorrect parameters in your "Custom test settings" (eg. Set of a lot step of 0.5 but trying to send an order of lot size 0.1) 2...

Re: Swaps & 3-day swap roll-over

Hi Elliot, The 'swap' fields denote the amount payable if you hold your position overnight. For example, if you set the ' Swap type ' to ' Interest ' and ' Swap long/short ' to 0.11, then you will pay 0.11% interest on overnight positions. The 'Roll-over 3 days' is the day of the week (0=Sunday, 1=M...

Re: Equity stocks work on brokers with no stocks

Hi Erpthetrader, It should be possible to do this by using one of the existing MT4 symbols as a "proxy". Simply export and test with the proxy symbol name. The main thing to note is that you will need to know the specific MT4 settings for that symbol (eg. Lot size, digits, etc). You can do this by e...

Re: No valid optimization results

Hi Matjazov, Thanks for the further information. From your message, we seem to have 2 things: 1) Regarding the error message you received from AT, do you have the exact sequence of steps that can reproduce this error? 2) Regarding the "EA lock" you are talking about - is this some sort of feature in...

Re: No valid optimization results

Hi Matjazov, You might want to check that all parameters and date ranges are exactly the same in both tests. Advanced Testing parameters such as variable spread could affect also your results. The best approach is to ensure that all your advanced testing parameters are as basic as possible until you...

Re: The data download does not exceed 0 Download data fails MT4

Hi Uriya, Thanks for the screenshots. As you say, it seems that the data is not being downloaded for some reason. In Tickstory, could you please go to File -> Settings -> Dukascopy and click on the 'Test' button. What is the result? If you get an error here, it means that something is blocking Ticks...
