I found the solution! 🙂
It was here in https://strategyquant.com/forum/topic/advanced-sl-ea/#post-204012
Download the updatefiles and put and overwrite the folders in the EAWizard-Directory and it works again.
The Java Error occurs whenever you uninstall and reinstall EA Wizard and when you’re changing drive-letter or location or harddisk.4.22.2018 1:19am in reply to: How to run a back test of 7 charts same EA but different settings in each chart? #233337
Hm, what I understand you want and what is possible:
-Running the same EA on same account on multiple charts (the same charts or other) – yes
– All running as one – No (because it’s defined per chart and/or account. That’s why you must take for every EA on the 7 charts different magic numbers )
– defining max Lot per EA – yes
– you can’t backtest alltogether. But you can backtest one after another e.g. in metatrader, save the reports and then take Quant Analyzer
(it looks like the SamplePortfolio.png in the attachment. The blue bold line is the Portfolio of the 4 Backtestreports below)
There must be away to add holidays in this? I would speculate if you can enhance ‘ffcal_net_orig.zip’ and import it into EAWizard successfully then the rest will be ok.
Of course there is a way to add holidays but you must add it at several places in the code and I’m not a programmer for mql4 to do the logic. I use EAWizard too. 😉 In this case it was only a one liner I added. That was not a big deal. So someone else must add this to the code perhaps.
As I said, you can’t import the indi after editing it with the MetaEditor. I think it’s better to find a newsindi with holidays and import that into EAWizard.
The license issue with EA Wizard is fixed today and here is my how to:
The indicator I use has the imapcts: Speaks, High, Medium and Low. I want to AVOID big news (Speaks and High impact news). I want to take the EA off 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after. EAWizard didn’t take my modified version of ffcal_net although MetaEditor said that everything is okay.
First import the indicator from ffcal_net_orig.zip in EAWizard.
Take then the EAwithNewsfilter.sqw and put in your strategie.
Export your EA and put it in the expert folder of mt4.
Take the indicator from ffcal_net_new.zip (my modified version) and put it in the indicator folder of mt4.
It seems working with it. Please test it first on a Demo.
Any suggestions or improvements are welcome. 🙂
after testing it looks like it’s working now. I will put here a how to with the sqw and indicator soon until my license problem with EA Wizard is fixed after changing the harddisk. I already contacted support.
Maybe it’s useful for you too. And you can adapt the how to with another indicator you want?!
I found 2 other Newsfilter, but I couldn’t import them to EA Wizard. They produce the same error “unknown return type!”.
So I changed to the newsfilter in the first post of the topic and this is not producing any errors in MT4 and EA Wizard. It seems working now, but I must still figure out which outputBuffers it has and which logic I must take in EA Wizard not to trade for example when Speaks and High News occur. Unfortunately it has no “holidays” so I think it’s useless for you. 🙁
here is the EA. I thought I have done all right but perhaps you can detect the failure?!
Thanks for your help! 🙂
Let me rephrase. You got to import it into EA wizard firstly without throwing errors? – it must somehow compile within your EA like that then be compatible with the MT4’s version. Maybe Tomas can help us.
My EA works, but not with that newsfilter.
This is an older post, cause it was locked:
Aaah…now I understand. 🙂 Tomas said that it has impact value for the most recent event (Low = 1, Medium = 2, High = 3)
But as you can see in the screenshot, it is also possible to set for Speaks and Holidays. But I don’t know the impact value for these two. 4 and 5? Try it out. But in strategytester it is not working! You have to put it on a demo to test.
