I recently started working on Multicharts and did a few charts importing from ACII.
I am however having problem with backtesting some of the build in strategies. I follow the instructions yet I keep getting the error: DATA FOR NONE OF THE LOADED SYMBOLS IS SUFFICIENT FOR BACK TESTING OR OPTIMIZATION.
I went through all the settings 9 times did all the bar and magnifying settings etc.
The 2 signals I tested out were Bollinger Bands LE and SE.
You need to provide a lot more details. Exact type of data imported, how much of it, length of backtest, etc.
Did you open a chart and confirm the data is valid?
Is it tick data? Minute data? Daily data?
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

It goes back to the above date from the current date. I have tried doing a back test with less bars, but get the same error then. I just hate not getting it right because I want to start back testing my own strategy, but can't even get the build in ones to work.
