Hello,

I use ACCOUNT_PROFIT to close the positions, I would like the info ACCOUNT_PROFIT to give the result only after the opening of a new candle m1 and not at each tick.


Here is the code I use:

double Profit=AccountInfoDouble(ACCOUNT_PROFIT);

if  (
      Profit >=TP_Money
                        )
      CloseALL();

Does anyone have the solution ?

Особенно полезен данный индикатор при использовании в тестере стратегий — получается визуальное отображение баланса и эквити: Для применения индикатора в Тестере нужно записать его в шаблон тестера "tester.tpl". Делается это так: откройте любой график очистите график от лишних индикаторов, объектов и советников (желательно ото всех) возьмите...

Hi

static datetime NewBar = 0;

if(NewBar != iTime(Symbol(),PERIOD_M1,0)
{
 double Profit = AccountInfoDouble(ACCOUNT_PROFIT);
 
 if(Profit >= TP_Money) CloseALL();
 
 NewBar = iTime(Symbol(),PERIOD_M1,0);
}

Thanks Vladimir & Seyed for your help, it works.

What I do not understand is that I do not have the same results with an Price Open and every tick backtest, while the calculation of the strategy at entry and exit is based only on the opening/closing of the candle m1. Do you have any idea why so much difference ?

If you do not understand what the difference is, then I highly recommend using the tick mode " Every Tick "

Ticks are required for testing and optimizing Expert Advisors, because they use tick data for operation. Testing can be performed on real ticks provided by a broker or on ticks generated by the strategy and based on minute data. Real Ticks # Testing and optimization on real ticks are as close to real conditions as possible. Instead of generated...

If you are sure that strategy only uses prices and informations of latest closed candle and you are not using functions that are tick-influenced (like trailing stop, break even... anything else that uses Ask/Bid for calculations) you will obtain exactly same results.

Probably you get less trades becuase you have less historical data of Ticks instead of 1 minute HOLC.

I just backtested in 1 minute HOLC and I get exactly the same result in every tick ;)

Thanks to you all for your help
