MT4 Backtesting & Optimization
Here is a visual tutorial (aka HOWTO) on how to run optimizations and backtests with MetaTrader 4 (MT4). This is but one method of backtesting! There is another method that you can use but which involved downloading backtesting data NOT from your broker but from MetaQuotes (the makers of MetaTrader 4 – MT4) directly. For a guide on how to use this other method please see this post of mine instead.
I hope you find the guide useful and if you do feel free to give me a shout out by leaving a comment. Here goes the guide:
*Due to the limited screen real estate my current blog template affords I had to reduce the size of the images a bit. So if you find that you cannot clearly read a particular item in this visual guide please click on any of the images for a full screen version*
By the way in case you are wondering the EA’s backtested in this guide come from Bogie Enterprises.
That about does it for this post.
Have fun backtesting! Hey don’t forget if you find that elusive holy grail EA, send me a copy! 🙂
