Re: Amazing AE Fails to build and run !!!

I in option added 1 more 0 to 100000000  Max Bars, now it looks like it works.

What's wrong with FSB's backtest?

Re: Amazing AE Fails to build and run !!!

Don't bother FSB said "major find", Metatrader said "Major Fail"

When you run MT tester, it loads exactly 100 bars. There is no way to set it loading more. It looks like that your expert need minimum 300 bars. The bars needed are calculated from the periods and shifts of the indicators.
Example: Moving Average with period = 200 and Shift = 100 will require 200 + 100 = 300 bars.

Solution:

Set starting time in the MT Tester to a date that will ensure 300 bars like that:

Metatrader said "Major Fail"

Our experts are clever enough to warn you that there is no enough bars and refuses to run. In the other case, the results would be absolutely wrong.

Fortunately, the EA printed the exact reason for the failure.

EDIT

For the attached strategy, Envelop requires 299 bars and FRAMA requires 198.
The max is 299 bars. The EA requires 1 bar more in order to be able to calculate the signal and asks for 300.

You can see that in the FSB screen:
We have 20 000 bars loaded, but the program says that 19 701 bars are tested. It means that the strategy requires 299 bars.

You can see that also in the exported strategy:

Re: Amazing AE Fails to build and run !!!

if you back test this strategy, you will see that it is a major fail, that is what I meant.It does not even come close to what FSB predicted, I did get it working, but the AE is bad, Thank you anyway.

Re: Amazing AE Fails to build and run !!!

Hello Popov,

Also in trouble for testing my first ever EA!!

On FXSB no problem (apparently). Troubles arise when try to run it on MT4, nothing happens.

I hope some pictures I sent by email (it seems there is Qty limitation here) attached would help for troubleshooting. If not, please let me know if you need more information.

Thank you so much,

FSB doesn't predict anything, user does.

Please make sure you use the same Historical Data as FSB Pro, FSB Pro default data is Dukascopy tick data, so if you use FSB default data, you should import the data from Dukascopy to your MT4.

Another way is by exporting your MT4 Data to FSB Pro.
