I thought the strategy tester only analyses 4 ticks per minute, the high, low, open and close? If this is the case then what you are attempting is only possible using tick data?

The Strategy Tester simulates ticks between OHLC values. See https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/1490

probably the best you could get with any degree of certainty to a trade at the end of a daily bar would be take the first price that arrives in the last one minute bar of the day.
