Dukascopy Jforex historical tester is full of strange bugs


This historical tester in Dukascopy JForex is pretty weird. I get this event error when trying to run my strategy:

2018-01-03 00:00:00 Exception java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The chart cannot be opened for AUD/JPY, select AUD/JPY before testing @ jforex.strategies.sdk.QLNStratFXVol3d.setupChart(QLNStratFXVol3d.java:680)

I do leave the AUD/JPY open before trying this.

I can run it no problem in my demo account so I have no idea what is causing it. Nor do I care as I can just run this thing in regular test mode against all my 40 + subscribed currency pair instruments. I am sure this is caused by something stupid but it looks like sloppy internal programming to cause this. Not only that, you would think the idiot architecture person would have come up with better messaging. I have so much confidence that Dukascopy support is so useless it will get ignored or take a year for a fix. This is just one more reason why I believe ‘rolling your solution’ can work in your favor.

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
