Forex Tester software allows testing multicurrency strategies with multiple entries but please note that these experts need to be written in the Forex Tester format and have .dll extension.

Forex Tester program doesn't allow using MT4 experts, so you can't test them in our program.

The only way is to rewrite these EAs into the Forex Tester format (we provide Delphi and C++ API files for this purpose) and then add this EA into the Forex Tester program.
The conversion is not very difficult because our API is very similar to MQL. Please see more information about API here:
Forex Tester -> Help -> Strategies API

API files can be found in C:\ForexTester3\Examples\Strategies folder (by default).

Return to “FT API”
