Only changes I have done to my MT4 i can think of was I have started using this indicator <link removed by moderator> only a couple days ago.
edit. my fault for posting link. The link was to a mt4 indicator that recorded and charts a histogram of average/high/low spreads.
Figured not a bad idea to watch spreads throughout day to help test to real spreads. Just not sure how it would affect strategy tester.
Indicator is not used on strategy tester of course. Just my same EA i am backtesting. The spread indicator is running on a seperate live chart.
My Tallinex Demo tests like usual with same indicator.
Tallinex MT4 build 910
I have tested a little more. And its only not working on 'Every Tick' setting
The 'control points' and 'open prices only' works fine. Changing spread drastically affects results.
Same here for me under MT4 build 950.
Using the 'Every Tick' model in strategy tester doesn't use the Spread set anymore.
Instead the Spread is now 0 by default.
To work around this annoying bug:
1) Switch the test model to 'Open prices'
2) Now select or input a new Spread.
3) Start and stop backtest.
4) Change the model back to 'Every Tick'.
If you now start the backtest you will have the new Spread set also in this model.
Let's hope for a bug fix soon!
