In an attempt to gain better understanding of grid strategies I programmed a simple grid EA and then tried to make sense of the Strategy tester Report output in Excel.  For the purpose of experiment I used a lot size of 0.1 and checked for execution without errors.

Where there is a buy one lot followed by a sell one lot, the figure in the profit column is the number of pips difference between buy and sell multiplied by 0.1 as would be expected.

When there is a buy one lot followed by another buy one lot followed by a sell one lot, things appear to become more complicated and I am unable to determine how the profit figure is calculated.

Is anyone able to demonstrate how the profit column figure is calculated as I am sure the problem must be in my understanding and not an error in the Report Generator.

regards
