How does backtest give 2000$ in one day 0.01 Lot?

 

in backtest, it gives me 3 positions in date Dec 2, 2019, AUDCAD, 0.01 Lot

at 00:00 as shown

my qustions:

1- Is this error or real values?

2- if it's error, is it because of EA, Backtest or Chart?

3- is it possible  to give the same value with negative? 

4- How to avoid it if it's dangerous?

while my strategy depends on night trading.


Thank you

An error obviously.

Impossible to answer, you didn't give any technical details (code, logs, settings, parameters...).

3- is it possible  to give the same value with negative? 

No idea what you mean.

4- How to avoid it if it's dangerous?

There is nothing dangerous here, we are talking about the Strategy Tester.
