In order to start using Strategy Tester in MetaTrader 5, open MT5, then go to: File > Open Data Folder.

You can also hit Ctrl+Shift+D on your keyboard.

Open data folder

Once the folder is open, go to MQL5 > Experts.

Then drag your MT5 Expert Advisor into the folder. The EA can either be in .ex5 or .mq5 format.

After the file has been moved, then restart MT5. You’re now ready to start testing your EA in Strategy Tester.
