Hello


I have a doubt regarding setting spred in tester.

Values set in spread parameter are 1 pip or 0.1 pip?

For example, if my broker provides 1 pip for EURUSD. Do I have to say spread to 1 or to 10 in spread settgin for testing EA ?




Thanks in advance

The Spreads are in Points. For 5_Digit Broker, EURUSD Point = 0.00001 (5 digits after the decimal point). For 4_Digit Broker Point = 0.0001.

A Pip is always equal to 0.0001 for EURUSD. If you need 1Pip within the tester and the broker is 5_Digit then you set it to 10. Otherwise you set it to 1.
