    When I use the tickdata from tick data downloader, metatrader runs back tests extremely slowly. The 1st part of the backtest is the slowest, when it is calculating from M1.

     

    I loaded the .csv files into the history center, from M1 to D1. Is there a step I am missing? If I use .txt files from forexhistorydatabase, the tests run very quickly.

     

    Thanks

    do you use tick data or minute data from TDD? tick data will be always much slower than minute data.

     

    I don’t see why using minute data from TDD should be slower than minute data from FHDB, it is hard to say what MetaTrader does internally.
