Is there an easy way (with free software) to achieve 99% backtests. I have read about it in lots of forums but cannot seem to find a simple way (without converting & exporting etc)
Or can somebody please explain in layman's terms how I can do this?
I have tickstory lite, downloaded the currency pair I want to test on, exported to MT4, but now in the journal tab I am getting errors about it only being 'read only' and 'demo and live server differs' and so on.
RSTrading posted: Ok, I was up until early morning hours figuring out how to do this. Now I offer this to others who might need it at 80c a month tested, plus I will send you a performance report of your EA. Pm me..
Nobody is going to pay that and give an EA code for something that takes less than 1 hour to setup...
Here is how to achive such quality for those who want to run the tests in their computer:
I hear what you say.. I really battled for hours, did everything as the instructions said (google is full of explanations and youtube videos) First my backtests said modelling quality n/a then it said 99% but it was red. I am just offering this to people who are battle like I did. Software would have to be purchased if there was a demand for it.
The idea is not to make $ with this and do it full time. It is only to provide a service to others struggling to get it right.
You will be happy to know that there have been no takers, and I will do it for free until my licences are up, then stop completely.
I wanted to do some accurate backtesting and googled how.
The above youtube video doesn't work anymore - only paid versions of the program for mt4 terminals build 765 and up. We are already at build 950. With a lot of effort you can downgrade to a previous build and it will still be too high.. I have searched high and low for a terminal of previous build. I found a few that were in the 200-300 range. Once again the launcher couldn't start the mt4 terminal, too old.
Eventually after hours of searching and tweaking, I found a way to do 99% modelling quality backtests easily and unlimited if anyone is interested. You will be amazed at the difference between 90% and 99.9%. I believe that past behavior is not a predictor of future behavior, but it gives us an accurate picture
Well, I calculate it manually! In addition, I don’t have any specific target that I want to make in my every single trade position, I set my Stop Loss and Take Profit positions in order to neatest support and resistant levels! In addition, I count profit ratio here so seriously and I use only 1.5 and above profit ratio’s trade positions!
