Topic: Tick or bar

Hi,
I would to know if I could use in FSB the historical by tick instead of bar ?

Re: Tick or bar

You mean tick data? And what is your reasoning?

Re: Tick or bar

for exemple  in this exemple you have 50857 bar and you have 112941121 ticks. https://c.mql5.com/31/333/insight-trend-screen-1582.jpg
I think it's more precise to start from the ticks instead of bar.

Re: Tick or bar

The fact there are more ticks than bars does not mean a greater precision, mind you, the so-called ticks in MT is not real tick data.

FSB is built on using bar data and that is enough, it gives speed and efficiency. When using FSB, focus on ambiguous bars! If there are 0 of them, the backtest is precise 100%. If you are not convinced, use Bar Explorer in FSB, and verify the workings of the strategy for every bar, does MT offers this kind of precision? No, it doesn't. Make sure you have good quality data covering lower timeframes as well, there is no need for tick data.
