This video shows you how to add an auto trader Expert Advisor to your MetaTrader chart, and also how you can test the accuracy of the Expert Advisor (EA) by using the MetaTrader Strategy Tester.

The Strategy Tester is also very useful to look at the performance of indicators, because it allows you to “play back” exactly what the market did in the past so that you can see how the indicator performed “live”.

This is important since some indicators “repaint”, and if this happens a lot, it makes the indicator unsuitable for live trading, even if it looks very impressive in retrospect.
