Results of an Expert Advisor testing are displayed on tabs "Backtest" and "Graph".

Bar chart

Detailed testing results are displayed on the "Backtest " tab. The tab contains general testing results, including profit and the number of trades, as well as many statistical values to help assess the performance of the trading robot.
Additional charts visualize the distribution of the number and success of trading operations by hours, days and months, as well as describe the risk parameter of the trading strategy.

Testing Graph

On the "Graph" tab, you can visually determine how successfully the Expert Advisor performed on the selected instrument in the selected time interval.
The balance curve (blue line) and the equity curve (green) are shown in the main area of the tab. Dates are shown on the horizontal scale, balance/equity values are shown on the vertical scale. The bottom part of the tab features a histogram of the load on deposit, which is calculated as the ratio of margin and equity (margin/equity).

  • Balance values are shown on the chart each time they are changed (when a position is closed), equity values are additionally shown with a certain periodicity between balance changes.
  • When testing on accounts with the exchange risk management model. the chart only shows the equity, while the balance and the deposit load are not shown. The trading status of such accounts is evaluated based on the equity level. The balance only shows the amount of money on the account and ignores the trader's assets and liabilities. Deposit load (margin/equity) is not displayed, because in the exchange calculation mode margin is equal to the current discounted value of the asset/liability, and it changes along with equity.
