Hi,

I have a library of ASCII intraday data which I wish to use for backtesting in zorro.

I can convert the data so it comes in as latest data first.

Two issues :

One: I could not do a demo run with the given data.

I tried to do a demo run using the workshop1 script and EUR/USD from the symbol list. Broker was set up as MT4/5 demo.

When clicking on test, I get a message "Workshop 1 compiling... Result = 3". There is no report.

Two: I am not sure about the steps needed to start a backtest.

I created a symbol in the Assetfix.csv file. What next? How to tell Zorro I am in demo doing just backtesting.

Any help would be appreciated.

What you probably wanted to do was running workshop 4, not workshop 1.

Yes. Thanks. Workshop4 did process and give a chart with results.

I assume, I can import ASCII data into an asset I created, with the demo and MT4/5 as broker (I do not have an account with the broker)
