    Hi I see this message in Pseudo code

     

    IMPORTANT – BACKTESTING ISSUE IN MT4 DETECTED WITH THIS EA !
    //|
    //| Your strategy contains multiple charts, or multi-symbol / timeframe
    //| blocks or indicators – an example is Open Daily, Low Daily, etc.
    //|
    //| MetaTrader 4 Strategy Tester doesn’t support multi-TF or multi-symbol
    //| strategies, so this strategy will be not backtested correctly.
    //|
    //| MT4 supports trading of such strategies, but not their backtesting,
    //| unfortunately there is no known way to backtest these strategies in MT4.

     

    If i have generated a startegy to trade eurusd whilst looking at the eurgbp and gbpusd how can i reliably backtest it? or this this statement  above wrong?

     

    Thanks

    Hello, the message is obsolete. You can use MT to backtest multi-symbol & multi-timeframe strategies

    i dont think so, that its so simple

    in MT4 we can backtest only multiTF strategies looking at the higher TF

    no multimarket, no multiTF with lower TF

    You can check this

    Trade EURUSD based on GBPUSD close bar above / below its MA 14

    As mentioned it is recommended to reference only higher (multi-tf) or higher/same timeframes (multi-symbol)
