Get access to a powerful EA testing environment
In this more technical trading environment, testing quickly to ensure EA reliability is critical. The MT5 Strategy Tester uses MQL5 language to allow for enhanced EA optimisation.
This tool cuts the time it takes to backtest EAs from several hours, and in some cases days, to minutes. That is possible through the MQL5 Cloud Network where you can test the EA across thousands of computers, allowing the task to be completed much quicker.
Although this service is chargeable by MetaQuotes, if this is your core need, we have the solution to respond to this.
