  1. This may be a really stupid question.. When shorting would my limit be hit at the bid price and stop hit at ask price? Vice versa for long positions. Or is it when shorting, both my stop and limit will be hit at ask price and long positions would both be hit at bid price? Thanks!
  2. Sweet I didn't know mt4 was better for backtesting. I'm gonna give that a shot. Thanks
  3. Yeah that makes sense. I'm gonna look up the average true range and go from there. Thanks
  4. I'm trying to work out the best way to do this. Do I need to keep toggling between the bid/ask price view as I'm backtesting to see where my buy in, stop loss and limits would be hit. Or is there another way to factor it in? I'm guessing as it keeps changing I can't just add/subtract a certain amount of pips. Thanks
  5. Looks like I have more homework to do haha Thanks for the help guys!
  6. **** I see that now, thanks for pointing it out. Is there any way I can try to factor this in? For example when back testing do you use the ask/bid price rather than the mid? Thanks
  7. Yes GBP/USD. Opened today at 26 Mar 2021 17:21:21 Australia Eastern Daylight time. Closed at 26 Mar 2021 18:00:02
  8. I just noticed price did spike to 1.37621 but still nowhere near my stop loss and literally just above my opening price.
  9. My trades keep closing way before my stop loss and I can't seem to figure out why. I'm aware of slippage and spreads but some of them still don't make sense. Today I set a an order to sell at 1.37611 with a stop loss at 1.3766 and limit of 13749. The price filled my order and then moved down towards limit, came back up to 1.37607 where it apparently hit my stop loss and closed the trade. Price then went down far below my limit so should have been a good trade. Basically my trade closed while it was in profit, saying it was at the stop loss. Please can somebody help is there any way I
  10. Hi, this morning my charts haven't started running again after the weekend. The Aus200 has been open for 4 hours and my order has gone through however the chart still shows Saturday. Same with Aus/Nzd which usually would be open now. I've tried different browser, clear cache, etc. Any ideas? Thanks
