i use GER30. Spread is 1 pts. I am SURE of it
I have a BUY STOP AT 10000 with STOP at 9995.
When prise is 10008 i change with my EA STOP. It is now at 10003.
Price is now 10003. And my position is closed.
But in my report it is a loss.
And for all my trades .
A reason ?
To explain this, a few pictures :
Capture 1 : My BUY STOP order with stop 3 pts under.
Capture 2 : On position
Capture 3 : The EA has changed the stop. 3pts with a 1 pt spread i can not loose.
Capture 4 : Position closed, the price has touched the stop.
Capture 5 & 6 & 7 : My reports
I have never trader the GER30 so I don't know its particulars, but the only thing that comes to mind is commission. However, as far as I know, the Strategy Tester does not simulate commission, unless you are using 3rd party generated tick data, such as with "TickStory".
It was using whs's mt4. I installed a virgin mt4 with server and logins of WHS and i have no problems.
It was a WHS configuration ? Perhaps.
Another question, what is the use of the spread button on strategy sester ?
During the night, MT4 uses night spread during a day backtest
Sorry but it is diffucult to follow what you tell :
during the day, spread is 1 pt. So in the field i choose 10 because there is 1 digit.
So, why, in my backtest (done during the night but on day hours for the trades) if i put a stop at 30 the position is forgotten with 10 in the field, and used with 80 in the field ? (night spread is 70)
