Topic: Needed clarifications to ensure understanding
I am running some additional tests and seeing a few things I don't understand and would like to ensure my expectations/interpretations are correct:
1. I am running a test on EURUSD, and have the "Closing Point" set as "Bar Closing" to exit at the end of the bar. However, the trades appear to be exiting at a price intrabar. The opening trades always open at the beginning according to my "Opening Point" specification. Is there something else I need to do to ensure the trades always close at the end of the bar, regardless of whatever other Closing Logic Conditions I use?
2. I am trying to review my results in "pips" vs. equity - does this mean that when looking at the journal "Profit Loss" column that is really in pips as well - how is that column calculated as I tried to do the math manually for a few trades and couldn't get it to match up?
I have attached a screen shot of the systems/settings/journal which will hopefully be helpful.
Thanks for all your help!
