Because Metatrader EA's are written and compiled in whatever manner...... and soo restrictive when optimizing, to me it does not seem worth while to accommodate them in FSBPro.
FSBPro can make far superior strategies....
Far better to propose, in my view, small changes that will improve the functionality of FSBPro.
Popov is far from finished in the development of this project.
As far as huge data, you can change the dates and go back as far as you like, make whatever periods u like, that should not be a drawback.
We can optimize 4 (or even more) long periods simultaneously and interchange values to get a solution.
My thinking is that the program is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy above MT5 and MT4.
Be sure to point out to Popov whatever characteristics the MT4 or MT5 ea has that you feel could be advantageous, I know he will try to incorporate those.
There may be an indicator or calculation method or logic sequence... document it completely and with pics and add it to the list.
Put them in the wish list.
Again, I have experienced similar thinking to yours and then, as time passes, I learn to utilize FSBPro features more and more.
My 'secret' goal is to push EA Studio until I can net 3000 pips per day....
