Testing EA in Renko charts in MetaTrader


Many people messaged me regarding how to test any EA in Renko charts. Below is the step by step instructions for them.

1. Download Tickstory to download the historical ticks. You can use free version of Tickstory incase if you cant purchase it. Free version can only allow one year data.

2. After installing TickStory Right click on pair which you wanted to test and select export to file.

6. After restart, run the RenkoFSTBuilder and enter the path for CSV file downloaded in step 1 , starting date, end date and Time frame and click ok.
