3. Account Exchange Rate

Account Exchange Rate - updated

The Account Exchange Rate area lets you set the rates. Those are mandatory to set, since FSB Pro calculates all your strategy backtest based on the Account Currency from the previous panel. Depending on your Account currency, the exchange rate might be in a different relation to the strategy’s symbol currencies. That relation might result in the Account Exchange Rate to be equal to the Deal price, to be unused or to equal a certain value. When you change the currency pair in “Data source and Symbol”, you will see the contents of the boxes below will also change. When the exchange price cannot be determined from the strategy/account relationship or from the broker, the account exchange rate will be manually changeable. However you can easily set it’s values using the “Update” button below, which will take the rates for the present currency rates from the Internet.
