Hi. Does anyone know if it's possible to determine if the last trade was a Buy or a Sell? I thought that comparing the Ask or Bid to the Close[0] was the answer but Close[0] always returns the Bid price.

im not totally familiar with all of this, but i was thinking... i know there are a number of us who want to use metatrader (a great platform) as a charting tool for our brokers (who have crappy platforms) data feed. for example, there is a way to access Interactive Brokers data feed, but no way...
We all need a backester, which shows the same results as a forward test does for the same period and with the same broker.
