Topic: spread as a filter

lately i got stopped before my stop loss point  more than one trade and the stops were before my stop point 11 pips and enen 14 pips and i have been told this is because of the spread get widen at that time

this is a behavior we have no control on  but it gives me an idea to use spread as a filter when enter the trade " if spread > specific amount so trade not taken or if spread > average last X bars spread range  trade also not taken

is that idea applicable to be coded as indicator or to be build in in FSB !!!!!!

Re: spread as a filter

bar data from MetaTrader doesn't include spread info and we cannot backtets strategies taking into account the spread.
