could you tell me how strategy tester calculates profit?.
profitInAccountCurrency = ( OrderClosePrice() - OrderOpenPrice() )* Direction( OrderType() )
* OrderLots() * DeltaValuePerLot( OrderSymbol() ) ;
WHRoeder, i am working with a index instrument, i guess i have to manually set the profit, maybe in an excel, because with indexes i have a ticksize and tickvalue (a little different than forex), any idea?
How can show the correct profit in strategy tester?.
For instance, the instrument (cfd index) that i am testing has this properties:
Tick value: 2.50
Tick size: 0.25
Sorry, was my fault,, the result is correct i had set USD insted of EUR in the testing tab, damn.
Problems again, is this a bug?
TickValue (full lot) = 2.50
TickSize = 0.25
EUR Account, Look the profit in Strategy Tester
1) 3730.25 - 3715.50 = 14.75 / 0.25 = 59 ticks * 2.50 = 147.50 -> 147.50 CORRECT
2) 3721.50 - 3711.50 = 10 / 0.25 = 40 ticks * 2.50 = 100 -> 96.13 WRONG!!! Why calculates 96.13?
