MT4 strategy tester have custom spread value.

How come MT4 strategy tester did not have that custom spread value to test the EA?

Because MT5 uses historical spread value (from each M1 bar).

Using historical spread value might seems like a good idea, but custom spread value is best for testing EA. This will tell me if that EA is profitable or not if broker's spread is high.
