#### Topic: Reversing the logic does not give me opposite results

Why is is that when I reverse the logic I do not get opposite results? This is true even after i set  all my "charges" to 0.
For example if you buy at an up fractal and close at the end of the bar. and try the opposite you do not get opposite results!

Btw great program!

#### Re: Reversing the logic does not give me opposite results

Hello daven613,

It's a bug in the "Enter long at a Down Fractal" logic when there are overlapping fractals.
Happily it does not affect the "Enter long at an Up Fractal" logic.

We will publish a bug fixed version probably in a week.

Thank you for the feedback!

#### Re: Reversing the logic does not give me opposite results

Still all other logic when reversed dose not return opposite results. The fractal case was just an example.
Another example is the pivot points try entering long at r3 and hold until the end of the bar, then try going short at r3 until the end of the bar. The results should be the opposite but they are not. I have not yet found one set of logic that when reversed gives opposite results.

Of course all my charges are set to 0.

Thank you again.

Hello,

As you know we can compare opposite strategies when:
1. All the charges are zero;
3. "Information in Pips" is switched on (Menu Account);
4. There is no Adding, Reversing, Reducing;
5. There are no ambiguous bars.

About the Pivot Points - the backtest shows 8 ambiguous bars.
Forex Strategy Builder uses different interpolation methods to master the ambiguous bars.
The Comparator is designed to compare the different methods and to calculate a mean balance.
We think that this mean balance line is the most reliable one.

Using the Comparator we see:

[Opening Point of the Position]
Pivot Points
Enter long at R3 (short at S3)
Base price  -  Previous bar range
Use previous bar value  -  Yes

[Closing Point of the Position]
Bar Closing
Exit the market at the end of the bar
Base price  -  Close

[Opening Point of the Position]
Pivot Points
Enter long at S3 (short at R3)
Base price  -  Previous bar range
Use previous bar value  -  Yes

[Closing Point of the Position]
Bar Closing
Exit the market at the end of the bar
Base price  -  Close

P.S.
------------------
That is a good idea to check opposite logic for opposite results.

You are unbelievable!

Thanks again!
