Topic: Generate strategies with spread or without?


how do you do this? When export historydata did you put in Spread so that eastudio build strategies with a spread or with history data without spread and later in strategy tester set the spread? Which is better?

Re: Generate strategies with spread or without?

It is safe to set spread a little bit higher than the average real spread.
Please note that , if you set Spread = 0 in the "Data export" script, it will use the current spread at the moment of the export (rounded up to a prettier higher number smile ).

Plea be careful when testing with the MT's Tester because it works strange when you make several tests with different spreads. It may be only on my machine but I found it very unreliable.

The best practice is to always use spread, swaps and commissions that are same or higher than the real ones.
