I am having difficulty getting accurate Strategy tester results.

I am finding that the close represented is far higher than what is actual on the chart.

I think this is a bug withing MT4 as it occurs with many EA;s including the standard test EA that comes with MT4 (MACD Sample0

Has anyone else encuntered the same problem and has it been fixed.

Thanks in advance

Turn on the Ask line so you can see the size of the spread. You buy at the Ask and sell the Bid, so sells are closed at the Ask.
