Have you ever regretted you couldn’t use a custom indicator or EA while backtesting? We are happy to announce the development of the tool that will change the entire backtesting process - our MetaTrader 4 to Forex Tester 4 Converter!
The idea behind this tool is powerful: with the help of this program, you will be able to convert your favorite MT4 indicators from the .mq4 format to the .dll format suitable for the Forex Tester program.
The Converter will be integrated into the Forex Tester 4 software, so no additional installations or payments are needed: you simply upload your indicator / EAs the .mq4 format into the Forex Tester, wait a couple of minutes and get your ready-to-use indicator / EAs in .dll format suitable for Forex Tester.Keep in mind that we are still developing MT4 to FT4 Converter, it might take some time to finish it completely. Our team improves this tool every day, however, some of the functions are still at the development stage, while others might be not implemented at all.
The MT4 to FT4 Converter is currently under development and you can contribute to our main goal – release this effective tool faster and with wider range of features!
All you need is to send us the indicators you use most of the time so that we can determine the priority of each one of them. This would save a bit of our time while testing and refining our program and, as the result, we would be able to provide you with the top indicators in the needed format as soon as possible.
If you are interested, please send your best indicators to email@example.com. We will be truly grateful if you specify the subject of your letter (e.g. Indicators).
As every indicator/expert advisor is a set of functions and constants, we work on each function in course: from the most common and widely used to the specific ones.
1st step. Upload your indicator / EAs to the form below, it will show you all the unimplemented and implemented functions of this indicator/strategy.
Once all the features are accomplished, the indicator/strategy is most possibly ready to use.
2nd step. In case a couple of functions are in progress, check below the planned deadlines of the development works. If you are fine with the listed deadlines, you will be able to convert your tool once we finish the development of the functions you need.
|Status||Keywords||Approx. time of implementing*|
|Partially implemented||0 days (may behave differently than in MT)|
|Currently implementing||3 month|
|Not implemented||5 month|
|May not be implemented at all||∞ days|
*The calculations are approximate and may vary in some cases.
**Please, make sure your EA/indicator can be successfully complied by the Meta Trader 4 Editor.
In case, you can find any functions in the “May not be implemented at all” section, we are sorry, but most likely we won’t be able to implement these functions (or it may take quite a lot of time and efforts to make it work in the distant future).
Let’s say your send the indicator / EAs that contains only 2 functions: iMA, iMAOnArray.
In the case if these functions were already implemented in our Converter, we will convert the file for you, so you will get the .dll format file absolutely free. Since we have a lot of manual requests, it may take some time (up to a couple of months).
Another example: your indicator’s file contains more complex functions, for example, iMA, iMAOnArray, iStochastic, and iStochastiс function wasn’t implemented in the Converter yet.
In this case, we will collect statistics from all users, draw up a table of the most requested functions and begin to implement the most frequent first.
If it turns out that your indicator / EAs is not working correctly, we will eliminate the bug in the Converter for free, and you can get a correctly functioning file.
We will also keep you updated on the progress in functions regarding your indicator / strategy. As soon as the Converter will be able to convert your file, we will immediately notify you about it.
Please note: that all the features that will be required to convert your indicators will be added to the Converter.
If the indicator/expert advisor sent by you will help us in the development of the new Converter’s functions, with your permission, we can add this tool to the distribution kit of Forex Tester 4. In this case, it will be useful for a large number of traders. You can also leave the converted EA/indicator exclusively for personal use in Forex Tester 4.
Depending on the significance of your contribution to the development of the Converter, you can get a discount on our products.
We do care about our users’ privacy. So don’t be afraid that your indicators will appear on open access or will be transmitted to other people.
