WaltSoft Log Spread EA

The WaltSoft Log Spread EA will log the Average Spread on the chosen Interval and create a .csv file in the MQL4/Files folder or when testing in the tester/files folder.

Typical use

Meant to be used in the Strategy Tester to check the spread on the history data.

If you are testing an EA with the Tick Data Suite on downloaded history data with variable spread, then you have no clue if the spread from 10 years ago is the same spread you have today on the same pair, and so you may want to adjust the spread.

For example: The spread on Dukaskopy history data for the AUDNZD pair was around 11 pips in 2007. And in 2018 only around 2.2 pips!


  • Interval --> of which the average spread is calculated
  • Add to File Name --> if you want any addition to the file name
  • Show Comment --> shows Ask, Bid, Spread, Number of ticks in current Interval, Average Spread in the left-top corner of the chart



PS: there's also an Indicator version available here:  https://www.mql5.com/en/market/product/34364
