I have some problem with BT of Eitan.The program doesnt'work perfectly
Id he could tell us in which folder he put it .....
since the indicators dont repaint you can test a lot in a short period of time.
i personally like to test more pairs only for this year instead of some pairs but for a few years because i think because of the low volatility a lot of trading types which worked in 2011/2012 having problems in 2013/2014 for this reason i am so happy with eitans trading style
(at this point thanks again eitan)
because it even works now.
HOW TO BACKTEST ON MT4.
I am not much of an expert on MT4 but my wonderful Sister is. These instructions were given to me to use, Unfortunately I have not yet had time to do more than play around on this, however I do intend on back testing these methods. Perhaps if everyone finds this easy to use we could split up the testing and all take a few pairs and methods to lighten the workload, then publish here.
1. Open a blank chart and attache only the indicator(s) you want to test to the chart.
Then save the chart as a template maned tester.tpl
2. presss Ctrl-R to open MT4's strategy tester, then enter the settings exactly as in the screenshot below ie;
Expert Sdvisor; MACD Sample ( we are simply ysing this factory supplied EA as a 'dummy' EA.
We are not interested in the test results; we merely want to see the extent to which the indicators repaint)
Symbol; (whatever pair you want to test
Period; (whatever time frame you want to test
Optimization; check this is OFF
Model; Open prices only
Use date; Check this is ON and select a date range over which you want to run the test
Visual mode; check this is ON. Move slider to speed 10-12 (the speed is shown in the little help bubble that pops up.
The Skip to date is irrelevant.
3. Click the 'Start' button to start the process. You can click the pause/play button (next to the speed slider) to pause/continue the chart video. Then stop at any candle that generates a signal.
I sincerely hope this helps........ happy testing!!!
This is not a perfect entry, because
1) the not correct order of moving averages and the tunnel.
2) you´re not using the new addition to mts the trend indicator
3) the stoch cross is far from being perfect as well. (not coming from 15)
hope that helps
