2,2014-01-23 14:43:00,2014-01-23 16:43:00,1.36440,0.00000,0.00000,0.00000,Buy,EURUSD

Important: Files can only be opened in the terminal_directoryexpertsfiles folder (terminal_directorytesterfiles
if for expert testing)
So csv files must go there in those two folders.

Recommendations:

  • Copy signals.csv into the two folders terminal_directoryexpertsfiles folder and terminal_directorytesterfiles
  • Copy mq4 file to terminal_directoryexperts
