When testing my EA, I found some strange behavious of the tester:

In 2017.04.24 01:02, when there apears a big gap in EURUSD M1 chart, my EA opens & closes some orders at prices that shoul NOT exist.

Even when I set the tester to run in "fatest mode with open price only", it still interpolates some non-existing prices inside the gap and results faulty values.

I wonder if this a rare incidence that caused by my own coarse EA or it is the official way of tester of MT4.

Any one have a clue? Thanks in advance:)
