Strategy Testing

The terminal allows not only write expert advisors, but also test them before using. This useful function allows to check operativeness and efficiency of the trading system on history data. Testing allows to start automated trading with the full knowledge about expert conduct under different market conditions. The special "Tester" window was built into the terminal for this purpose. Using this window, one can optimize expert inputs, as well.
