Strategy tester Visual market playback error



I'm opening up the Strategy Tester and selecting a default EA (moving average or macd are the supplied) to run through past price action and practise my price action trading skills using the visual playback mode. I can select a data range for any available asset and it loads and starts: but it only runs for a few days then stops completely the moment the EA has made a trade, and I cannot start it again.
I tried replaying a few forex pairs on the hourly, and the data was always also jumping to early September 2019, regardless ofthe date range I had selected, though when I tried to playback the Nikkei225 on the H4, it *did* start at the correct date, but then similiarly *stopped completely* once the EA had made a single entry.

I basically just want to playback past price action, without interruption, between two dates. Help much appreaciated!

Edit: I can get continuous playback by testing an indicator rather than an EA. So I've started 'testing' the IG Candle Countdown and it plays back uninterrupted price action between the dates I have selected.
Unsure about the EA stuff, but this is a suitable workaround for me!

    • In the news; - oh dear never mind, it's all good data;  'A Turkish Prof, Zafer Kurugöl has said on TV that they have "accidentally" vaccinated babies with covid vax (adult dosage) and will publish the results (of their accidental experiment). He was also member of the Scientific Committee at Pfizer's Scientific Research Competition.' Professore Notte Botta @note_bot_ Pfizer’in Bilimsel Araştırmaya ve Genç Araştırmacılara Desteği Devam Ediyor | Pfizer Türkiye     'Newly reported deaths in Hawaii have risen 1,740% in the past two months despite one of the longest mask mandates in the world & overwhelming compliance…so I have to ask once again why Ron DeSantis did not mandate double masking & spend more time promoting vaccinations there.'  IM @ianmSC         Cases in South Korea have been at record high levels for nearly 3 months now despite 99% mask compliance, mask mandates and fines for non-compliance, so it’s always nice to hear politicians and experts keep pushing more mask mandates & forcing masks on 2 year olds.  IM @ianmSC   .
    • Ei Robsy, unfortunately nothing apart from the comment above. you? any more luck?
    • yes, and as everywhere else did nothing but harm;     'Type 2 diabetes in children appears to have doubled during the C-19 pandemic, data from two new US studies suggest, with the lead investigator of one saying she was "surprised by the staggering increase in cases of type 2 diabetes .. severity of presentation."
