Step Forwad 1 Step Feature

In FT, there is are two buttons, one is 'Step back 1 bar' and 'Step Forward 1 bar'. I usually use the backspace key to go back and remove data. But when I go back, then go forward. The data will not rebuilt. I guess what I'm trying to convey is that data is removed when going back but it is not rege...

Basic question regarding cross pairs

Hello, I'm hoping to find some basic help on non USD/cross pairs. I've back tested the following to create an example: AUD/CAD made 770 points with a gain of 6.06 GBP/JPY made 1280 points with a gain of 13.79 EUR/CHF made 420 points with a gain of 3.44 All of these trades were entered into with a lo...

Re: How many of your are profitable in FT3?

If you're not getting many responses. I think I can tell you why. FT is an application that helps prove the profitability of your trading method. It will not create a method, or make profits for you. Think of it like this... If you are an artist and you are painting on a canvas, the canvas is your t...

Re: Trading multiple pairs simultaneously

Hello, Does the project need to be saved after a project was created? In FT 2.9 I would always generate ticks, but never start or save a new project. I simply generated ticks, then ran a new test. Then lastly, save the account history. I'm assuming, but I have to verify. In FT 3, does starting a new...

Trading multiple pairs simultaneously

Quick question, Is there a limit to how many pairs FT3 can test simultaneously? I currently back test 26 pairs simultaneously. Sadly, I only receive results for 6 pairs. I have a dll for each pair. Each of the 26 work independently. Any combination of 6 out of the 26 works. But to run all at the sam...

Hello, I've used the Profit Chart feature in v2.9 but in v 3.0 I'm not seeing any charting. Attached is a pic. You can see that the deposit was 15,000. The profit was a little over 16,000. Leaving a balance of roughly 30k Problem is that all I am seeing are straight lines. I would think that a profi...

I agree with wowzers. If word was out that ForexTester could automatically convert strategy/dll files into ex4 or even mql file. WOW, that would be a game changer.

A few simple questoins, but one very important.

I've been using FT3 for a few weeks now and notice some slight differences between the two versions. I have some questions that are pretty simple.

No 'OnTestCompleted' event in FT3

One of my strategies relies on the 'OnTestCompleted' event. Is there a reason why it was removed from v3.0?

Here it is shown - viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3297

Would it be possible to receive that code or have it implemented back into v3.0?

Thank You.

Yes, I too rely on VM. My strategy is pretty much dead in the water without it. Anyone testing code in a greater scale than your average retail trader should use a VM in case the code is problematic. FT 2.9 did have the ability to use VM's with no problem. Version 3.0, not so much. Hopefully there w...
