    Hello,

    I apologize if this is explained somewhere and I missed it. But I’m trying to figure out how to combine a backtest from 7 different pairs on MT4.

    Would anyone know how to do this?

    Looking to get a chart / data of what it would have looked like, if all 7 pairs were being traded on the same account at the same time.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, but I’m not even sure how to do that? I was following the tutorial and it was having me add via the Data Manager, but the columns were not identifying in a way that would work. Unless the method for this is different?

    Hi Keith

    I think the solution is:

    1.: You should first run the 7 backtests in MT4 and save the reports >>> so you will have 7 reports.
    2.: After that open Quant Analyzer
    3.: Load the 7 reports
    4.: Click on make portfolio (or stg like that…) >>> now you will see the performance of the 7 strategies

    Sorry, forgot to attach some screenshots to show you the steps.

    First you need to obtain HTML reports from MT4, then you load them into QA and combine

    Check the image attached

    Hi Tomas, is there yet a way to see the combined performance of teh strategies referencing the *account balance* rather than the *strategy balance*?

    (I have been using QA to combine the statments but then need to switch to excel to do a compounded portfolio return and drawdown analysis)
