Product Description

Birt’s Tick Data Suite is a launcher that allows you to test Metatrader Expert Advisors (EAs) with tick data.  It offers a couple more features over the Tickstory Launcher including:

  • Allows backtesting with real, variable spread.
  • Offers the option to enable slippage in backtests.
  • Allows starting multiple Metatrader 4 copies from the same folder, letting you run multiple backtests or optimizations at the same time
  • Automatically detects if your data files are using variable spread or not.

The Tick Data Suite is compatible with Tickstory*, which means you can conveniently export data via Tickstory and begin your back-testing (Tickstory will seamlessly launch the TDS launcher once it’s installed in the MT4 installation folder).

If you are new to back-testing with tick data, you can try our free product Tickstory Lite which allows you to download quality tick data and back-test your Metatrader 4 Expert Advisors in 5 Simple Steps.

* Note that Tickstory does not provide technical support for the Tick Data Suite, however you can get any necessary support from the vendor.

  1. 5 out of 5


    As the original inventor of 99% back-testing on Metatrader 4, Birt has been around for many years freely providing his expertise to the Metatrader community. Combined with Tickstory, the Tick Data Suite (TDS) is a complimentary piece of software – it essentially replaces the Tickstory launcher and permits you to incorporate several additional back-testing features such as variable spread and slippage. This allows you to perform a lot more “what-if” type scenarios to evaluate whether your EA is really fit to trade live.

    Of particular value is that Birt prides himself with assisting subscribers. If you are an avid backtester, Birt’s TDS is a valuable addition to your toolkit and is highly recommended by Tickstory!
