Optimizing Every Tick Strategy for Every Tick Based on Real Ticks

 
Hello,
im having a strategy which just works perfectly in the tester on Every Tick but not so good on Every Tick Based on Real Ticks.
Is there any way to optimize the EA for Every Tick Based on Real Ticks?
Or could you emulate "Every Tick" in a live EA?
How can the difference be so big?


Thanks for answers;)
 

Every Tick emulates real ticks (there is an article about it) based on a formula. And optimization optimizes an EA acc. to that formula.

On the other hand Real Ticks aren't allowed for cloud optimization.

Well test you EA live on a demo account and check which is better for your EA.

Generated (or emulated) ticks never occur in the wild. "Every Tick" mode is suitable for development/debugging only. It does not make any sense to optimize in this mode.

 

But is it possible, to change the logic of a strategy to Every Tick?

So that your using the OnTick() Function, that receives ticks and then calculate the ticks for the strategy like the tester does calculate every tick.

Why would you want that? Are trying to make the EA falsify it's results?

In real live trading, real ticks are used. So you should strive to make your EA better at real tick data and not necessarily at virtual tick data.
