I decided to test my EA against some indexes and I noticed the movements were quite strong when compared with currencies. One notably volatile index is Nikkei, the market itself was relentlessly choppy and each movement had a sizable effect on capital.

Is this typical of the index are is this a data issue with mt4?

I just read that it is the most volatile stock index among the developed markets.

Thanks, I'll put my EA up against that as well. It's more expensive than the others.
