But in general, I want to know how the past indicator values are read - whether by calculation or by internal memory. To give an...
How does MT4's strategy tester handle price action within each bar, if you test using "open prices only"? For instance, I have the hourly bar below: O: 1.4400 H: 1.4460 L: 1.4300 C: 1.4400 and I buy on the open @ 1.4400 with a SL @ 1.4350 + a TP @ 1.4450. Both limit orders can be filled at some...
