Hello,


I realized that when I chose under "expert properties" GBP instead of USD while EURUSD is tested, the results vary quite a bit.


Does MT4 use one price for converting all USD to GBP?


So would it be better to choose "USD"?


Thx

You mean - initial deposit in GBP?
I can not say anything as I do not have this case sorry (I am depositing in USD only).

If you deposit in British pound so you can choose initial deposit to be in GBP for example ...
