Step by Step How To Test A New Forex Robot On MT4
When I buy a new Forex robot, I like to spend some time testing it in Metatrader 4 against some historical data. Usually I will start out with about a 3 year period.
If the robot passes that test, then I will try it out on short and longer time frames to see what happens.
The strategy tester in Metatrader 4 is actually pretty good and runs pretty fast after you download the data from the historical data section.
