I hope I am not overloading the forum with my noob topics, but though I cannot overcome the issue on my own
on the image below are the results of my EA strategy testing
order #3 (blue line on the graph) is a buy order opened at price 16.800 and closed at price 20.124 with lot size 32.46, which should be about 107$ profit, but the results section show 24.64$ loss. I am probably missing something obvious, but I don't see it. Please help!
spread is set to 2 and I am currently searching for where the swap is set
the test was performed on historical data that was imported from csv file, so, maybe MT4 is applying some wild swap for the trades?
the swap should be in that pop-up window, but it isn't
I don't get output for that particular order, it jumps over several numbers, but for some orders that have output comission is about 145%
When I run the test on original data that came with the terminal installation (that is subsequent to the historical data I used on the screen images) everything is fine.
I guess the problem is due to csv data mounting (I mounted all timeframes from 1 minute to 1 month), but the candles of the mounted historical data look pretty good.
when I run the test not using every tick but with open prices only (my EA works exactly on bar opening, so it is fine with my EA) I get those wild comissions again, here is the screen:
>create all your timeframes from the M1 data
do you mean creating them with instruments built in MT4 if there are any?
or do you mean I should make M1 from tick data and then make other timeframes from M1, but not from tick data?
because I created all timeframes from tick data directly
There aren't any if I am clicking in the right place.
