A new build of of MetaTrader 5 platform has been released by MetaQuotes today. Build 871 is a small quick fix to a bug that prevented backtesting of expert advisors employing custom indicators as resources. Other updates include:

  • New compiler directives for conditional checks: #if [n] def, #else and #endif.
  • Fixed display of Strategy Tester tabs and results for indicator backtesting.
  • Fixed display of tooltip when using crosshair cursor to measure pip distance on charts.
  • Other bug-fixes.

You can launch your MetaTrader 5 terminal and it will update itself automatically. See this MetaQuotes post for complete list of changes.
