Topic: Use all available shorter periods and tick data
Could you kindly explain following text I can find in Control Panel regarding one of the two parameters for Backtester:
“Use all available shorter periods and tick data to improve the backtest”
My understanding of FSB tells me that tick data is not available or used by FSB. I have been explaining and propagating this view in my posts on forum. What we are today downloading from FSB or from other sources are never tick data but only bar data.
Is this sentence wrongly formulated or I have to change my understanding (and excuse for all my wrongly formulated posts)?
