Are the values of the spread settings for the Strategy Tester actually a tenth of the shown values?  For instance, is a spread setting of '2' actually a spread of 0.2?

for a 5 digit symbol, 1 point is 0.00001

for a 4 digit symbol, 1 point is 0.0001

for a 3 digit symbol, 1 point is 0.001

for a 2 digit symbol, 1 point is 0.01

So, if I understand this correctly,

for a 5 digit symbol, a spread setting of 2 is 2/10 of a pip

for a 4 digit symbol, a spread setting of 2 is 2 pips

for a 3 digit symbol, a spread setting of 2 is 20 pips

for a 2 digit symbol, a spread setting of 2 is 200 pips

Right?

4 digit symbol & spread 2

0.0001 x 2 = 0.0002

0.0001 x 20 = 0.0020
