    MT5:
    When I do strategy tester on MT5 using "Every tick based on real ticks"
    I get many "Real Ticks Discarded", "Price Mismatch" and "Minutes Bars Absent" errors.
    How to fix this?

    That's probably an issue with your broker's tick data. Try contacting them about it.

    Is "Every Tick" more accurate than the "Real Tick" since I don't get error?
    Can I depend on Every Ticks?

    No, "every tick" is just a simulation of real ticks. Real ticks offer the best possible backtesting quality.

    Which brokers do you have experience testing with real ticks without any errors? I tested real tick with Alpari, FX Choice, FXOpen, Metaquote Default and they have errors.

    It all depends on the pair and the period. RoboForex worked great for me, but only on a small time span.

    Would it work if I tested into 1999s, 2000s, 2010s, 2016s?
    Was it because I tested too far back?
    Are real ticks only good for small time span?

    As far as I remember, it had real ticks data only back to June 2015.

    Chances are you won't find a broker with quality real ticks data since 2000 or so.
