You are talking about 2 different things, which are not, they are not the same! Backtest quality and data quality are not the same. If you have lousy backtesting engine like mt, then it doesn't matter how good your data is, the result is still shi+.
What errors you have then? Not enough bars? Can you set up your 99.99 to start after say 500 bars? For example, if you have a MA200 in your strat, then it needs at least 200 bars to calculate the first MA value. That's how this works.
BUT, it takes literally multiple days to back test
Yeah, my point exactly! Mt is useless as a backtesting platform, FSB does much more and is way faster.
I have downloaded all ticks
Ticks are not needed. The whole concept of FSB is based on bar data. If you have a backtest quality of 100% or 99% then what ticks? Bars are enough.
What is the point of using this software
To develop and backtest strategies and trade them. What else is there? Backtesting hasn't made anyone a profit yet, trading has. Trading is very difficult business and much more than a backtest in mt.
And exactly how do you know the data history in FSB is 99.99% when it is originally imported from the same MT4 broker that is giving less then 99% when back testing other EA's
Ok, answer my question I asked before, what is 9999 and what is less than 9999? What is it? Give me a formula! Then we can discuss. 9999 is hocus-pocus until there is factual statement in the form of mathematical formula.
And you can use History Center in FSB to see stats about loaded data and make up your own mind. Again, those are facts you see there, not some 9999 voodoo, which cannot be explained.
import quality ticks/bars from TDS and load them into FSB
Bar data is needed, not ticks.
And I also want to be able to send the EA to a buddy or even sell it on MQL5
Whose stopping you? Don't they have a live track record going on in mql5, why don't trade then? Are there really people who buy third-party EAs based on unknown backtests and backtests alone? Hmm, I could churn out a backtest result, which would make anyone's head spin - straight diagonal shooting from the left corner to the upper right!
Long story short. FSB interests you only in the form of EA export function. And it has to be backtestable by 3rd party data providers using mt. Ok, there's your problem - TDS and mt malfunction when using FSBs EAs. Ask them if there is a way to start a backtest further back, so there would be enough bars for the EA to calculate correct values. If they say it is not possible, then that's the end of the road for you. You have closure and you can stop wasting your time and find what suits you best.
Hope this helps!
