    Could you Please let me know how have backtested the strategy and posted the results graph.

    I am having terrible time in finding a way to backtest the strategies. Do I need to write an EA for each strategy to test them. Ofcourse I am an outright programmer but I dont find enough time to code the strategy.

    Please let me know how to backtest the strategies.
