Re: Live Trades different than in FSB
FSB probably thinks that the entry signal was before the exit. That's why it cancels the entry after position close. Check Journal by bars carefully for that bar and see if there is a canceled entry signal at the corresponding level. In such case, try using scanner with intrabar data. It will improve the backtest accuracy. Is this bar marked "Ambiguous"?
Yes there was a cancelled order. That was exactly it. So why does FSB differ from FST in this instance?
At least I know that this was just a rare occasion where there was just an overlapping entry signal with an exit signal in one bar.
I'm trying to figure out which one was right. I am trading one lot. Was FSB right to cancel that order. Or was FST right to instigate a new trade after the TP was met from the first trade?
I mean it was a valid signal, but FST shouldnt have traded it, if there was an active trade in progress. But if the entry signal came after the first trade was closed, then FSB should have displayed the trade as normal?
I have zero ambiguous trades for this strategy-data set.
EDIT: Are you saying for my 15minute data to be super accurate I really need to have the corresponding 1minute and 5minutes data for that timeperiod?
