FXCE Giga Backtest

Criteria to create EA with FXCE Giga

  1. History Quality ≥ 99%: The backtesting process is accurate and does not omis price data.

  2. Profit Factor ≥ 1.5: This number needs to be at least 1.5 because it is a good signal that the trading EA has higher profits than losses.

  3. EDD ≤ 15% x Total Deposit: Ensure there are no uncontrollable chain of orders with serious losses.

You need to do a backtest for a period of at least 2 years. The longer the backtest period, the more complete the EA's ability to work is demonstrated. 

Backtest Process Guide

  1. After the EA configuration, EA config file has been saved, FXCE Giga also automatically saves the template chart into 2 files: 

  • file named "EA Name.tpl'' (so that next time you load the correct template file corresponding to the config file).

  • file named tester.tpl to use for the Backtest.

  1. In case the EA was previously created, you must load the saved template before running FXCE Giga. This template has enough necessary indicators of your EA configuration you want to load. When you upload the EA config file, FXCE Giga automatically records the template tester according to the corresponding chart template.

  2. Open the backtest option from FXCE MT5's View > Strategy Tester menu (or press Ctrl+R) and select Visualize.

  1. In tab Setting, choose GigaFactory.ex5 in the bar Expert.

  • Select currency pair in bar Symbol to trade,

  • Choose a trading timeframe.

  • The bar Date should select Custom period, then select at least 2 years.

  • Tick on the box "visual mode with the display of charts, indicators and trades".


Since all the parameters in tab Inputs of the EA are already set and saved in the config file, you do not have to make any adjustments there, unless you want to enable the Print Log function to check the entry/closing order conditions during the signal testing.

  1. Click the Start button

Note: If you edit the EA configuration while the backtest is running, you have to run the backtest again. The new backtest will read the new config file and run according to the corrected configuration.

If it is the first time you are running the backtest, you must enable the options that allow the DLL to be imported into MT5. Go to Tools > Options menu, in the Options window select the Expert Advisors tab and set up as shown below:
