The Multi Market tool can help you compare how your strategy preforms on different markets. In a sense, this is a robustness test tool. Here you can add markets to test your strategy on. EA Studio will draw a backtest balance curve for each test.
Start/Stop button - run or stop the Multi Market tool
Progress - Shows how much of the work has been done i.e. what percentage of the market tests have been calculated.
Calculated - Shows how many backtests of the strategy have been ran.
Validated - Shows how many of backtest results do pass the Validation criteria tab in the tool
Adding markets is very easy. Just click the + Add market button. To set the market use the dropdown select options. To remove a market use the x button on the right side of the market.
The chart shows how the strategy preforms on the markets you selected. The color of each line corresponds to a different market. You can see the color for each market on its left side.
The statistics tab shows some basic backtest statistics for each market test.
