It is enough to run the robot once in the strategy tester in optimization mode and it will automatically select settings for 20 or more currency pairs at once.
Preparing an advisor for trading
Download the robot to the MT5 terminal in the environment where it will work (computer or VPS);
Connect to your real account (preferably – ECN, necessarily – Hedge);
Run the robot in the strategy tester on any pair in optimization mode (tick generation model based on open prices);
Wait for the robot to automatically select settings for all traded currency pairs (the robot optimizes up to 30 or more currency pairs at the same time);
Attention! when optimizing an Expert Advisor, DO NOT connect MQL5 Optimization Agents. The whole process should take place strictly within the framework of your computer / VPS . It is also necessary to trade in the environment in which the optimization was carried out. All this is due to the fact that during optimization, the advisor creates files on the computer / VPS which he will need to trade.
Another important feature of the Expert Advisor is that to carry out optimization, it is enough to select a strategy using the “Strategies” parameter, and you can immediately start the optimization process. You do not need to check any other parameters. The Expert Advisor automatically marks the required parameters and sets values for them (start, step, stop).
Launching an advisor
Open your terminal settings and add the followihe “Custom indicators” option. This makes the possibilities of the advisor unlimited.
- Any currency pairs (preferably with a small spread);
- Any period of the schedule;
- Any broker (preferab );
- Optimize fastest based on opening prices;
- It is better to run the robot on the pair on which you optimized it.
If the robot is not tested
- The current spread exceeds – MaxSpread (change account or broker);
- Incorrect settings (reset all settings – to default settings, read the description carefully).
