FSB is relative user friendly and easy to use. Sometimes when we crowd our minds with too much information it is rather daunting and overwhelming.
Before you start, I would recommend to download the script to your MT4 broker so that you can start collecting the historical data from your own broker and use it for your EA statistical results. http://forexsb.com/forum/topic/5379/met … ta-export/
I would recommend using JFD, an investment company guy recommended me this broker, very credible and professional. https://www.jfdbrokers.com/, if you are looking for a broker's historical data is rather similar to FSB Demo data and most of my EA developed by FSB, did well in JFD demo and live account.
So do break it down your learning curves into small little steps. Start with making your own EA (if you already have a trading strategy/plan/theory to begin with).
If you don't have any, then here you can explore what you think makes a good EA based on what you already know and test out your theory.
I do suggest (of cos it's personal preference) using 1 min time chart where you can include other time frames indicators by using the Long Time Frame (LTF) besides of the default time frame (which follows the time chart you have chosen, in this case it's 1 min). The 1 min time chart allows you to use 1min, 5min, 15min, 30min, 1 hr, 4hrs and 1D indictors. Whereas it is not possible for you to use 1hr time chart and then include Lower Time Frame into your opening conditions. You can only include Higher/Longer Time Frame, LTF.
Please read this discussion thread if you want to know why I recommended using 1 min http://forexsb.com/forum/topic/5457/lon … t-changes/
You can use MyFxBook to track your EA results and study which EA performs well based on Entry/Exit accuracy, read here for more info http://forexsb.com/forum/topic/5805/fil … ame-chart/

I use a lot of opening and closing conditions, the default is 8, however you can increase it to 26. http://forexsb.com/forum/topic/5621/ins … onditions/
Popov, can you kindly adjust the default to it's maximum 26 because it is very troublesome for those who want to change it to hunt for the thread/info/instruction and furthermore, most new comers wouldn't know that they can change it from 8 to 26. Furthermore, it wouldn't make any difference to those who don't need 26, they can just use whatever number they need. Whereas, those who needed more, don't have to hunt for the instruction on how to increase the default. Thanks. (meanwhile, if you don't mind, I look the liberty and put the instruction on how to increase the default number of opening/closing conditions under sticky)
