    Hello Petko,

    as far as I know Backtesting Meta Trader 100 bar could be an issue with algo trading.

    I know that Meta Trader starts the backtesting from the 100 bar securing that there will be bars for the first entry.

    Is this an issue for FSB Pro or EA Studio?

    Hello John,

    You have opened good topic here, and good questions inside.

    Yes, the Meta Trader backtesting starts from the 100 bar.

    So sometimes when you make a backtesting with FSB Pro, and it has in some of the indicators higher parameter than 100, you wont see a backtesting. It can not start. That is why you need to place manually a starting data(not using the whole period).

    In EA Studio you have the option to choose if you want to use the 100 bar in during the backtesting or not.
