Topic: MT4 Strategietester very slow with FSB EA´s

Hello

The Strategietester in MT4 is very slow with FSB-EA´s

Is it possible any make in EA-Code, that the MT4-Tester have a normal speed?

Thank you, Marcus

Re: MT4 Strategietester very slow with FSB EA´s

Nothing Idea for that?

I understand that the Backtest not good, but it is not possible to make faster with MT4 Strategietester?

Footon you a old People here, you have no Idea?

Marcus, I'm afraid it is as it is. For reliability purposes, essentially, at every tick all indicators get recalculated and it makes EAs so calculation-intensive and slow in MT tester. But we have to bear in mind that FSB exported EAs are not meant for additional backtesting, they are meant for trading. Because MT test is mostly useful for checking whether the strategy behaves correctly, there's no practical sense to address the slowness in MT tester.

Sometimes its is possible to edit the source to let the code execute only at needed moments and then there's significant improvement in speed, but this is possible if your strat trades at once a day in specific time (only at 12 o'clock, for instance).

What is the reason you need MT test if I may ask?
