Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the Spread: 2 setting for build 625 (and perhaps any other previous builds) being far less than 2 pips (perhaps it's at 0.2 pips)?


After recently doing some backtests on the spread 2 setting and getting unbelievably great results on all timeframes, I did further backtests on the Current setting which was 3 pips only to get the opposite results. Upon examination, I saw that the spread 2 trades were actually only around 0.2 pips, not 2 pips.

if you have a 5 digit quote the set the spread to 20.

Spread is in points, from the start it has been introduced.
