Marketscope & Backtester Prices Completely Different

Postby FrostyTrader » Fri Dec 30, 2016 10:15 am

Gday folks just a real quick one here and i sure hope someone can shine some light onto this. I'm currently workin on a few different signals at the moment - now the signals arn't the problem, theyre doin their job, but on comparison between the marketscope prices for candlesticks and the exact same candlesticks at the exact same time on the backtester were way out of wack, in some instances by up to 30 bloody pips. I checked my settings a million times and hope theres a simple explanation to this massive difference. Cheers in advance folks

Regards.

It seems that they have different data sets for different databases.

I had tried to create charts with 2 or 3 data sets, yes, the prices are different, but the charts, the shape of each candle stick look the same, I don't know why, hope that useful to you....

Do the candles have the same value?

There is also a difference in the results,
for live data simulation.
