Running custom EA testing

#1 Postby MartynasP » Thu Sep 07, 2017 12:48 pm

Hello. I am new here. I would like to add my own EA to test it over a long period of time (the best I was able to do up until now was 10 months) but I don't know how.

Could someone advise me on this subject?

Hello,

You can use custom experts in the Forex Tester 3 but they should be written in Forex Tester format and have .dll extension.
These experts can be added via File -> Install -> Install New Strategy menu.
Please check this tutorial about how to use EAs in the program:
http://www.forextester.com/expertadvisers

If you have the expert in another format, it can be written by a programmer in the Forex Tester format using Forex Tester API libraries (we have Delphi and C++ API for writing indicators and EAs).
Please see more information about API here:
Forex Tester -> Help -> Strategies API

viewforum.php?f=9

API files can be found in C:\<ForexTester3>\Examples\Strategies folder.
