Weird issue with MT4 Backtest

Hi there,

I have just backtested three pairs and began the forth pair.

The optimiser begins OK with two or three passes, then, all following passes return a zero result.

I know the data is OK, and I have reinstalled MT4 from scratch.

The first three pairs were EUR USD, EUR GBP and USD JPY.

I have the problem with USD CAD and AUD JPY.

The first three pairs continue to test flawlessly.

Can someone suggest what might be going on?

The journal entries are normal.

I am using a fast gaming PC on windows 10.

Just to say that if I choose any of the 'zero result' cases and accept the settings, everything runs perfectly.

I have been backtesting for about ten years and never seen this happen...

The settings on the EA can be identical between pairs yet still fail to display the results.

If anyone can help I can attach a screen shot.

Yes I have tried the same backtest on a VPS and get the same bug.

Is there no more support for MT4 ?

Have you tried using MT5?

I have proved it to be a bug in the EA. Sadly the Coder requires a substantial deposit up front before he will look at the code again. I think I have figured out a work around though. It does feel good to finally have the indication of good profits after trialing various methods over a 12 year period.

I don't know, I haven't encountered such problems.
For me it's better to update everything and try it first.
