Hi,

 

So far I’ve only been importing M1 bars into SQ3.

 

Anyone who has imported real tick data, please tell me:

 

  1. Is the spread in the bid and ask prices used (real spread), or the default spread entered when the symbol was added? 
  2. If I’ve already imported M1 bars for a symbol, can I now import tick data?
  3. If a symbol already has M1 bar data and I import tick data, which one is used for M1 and above timeframes, the tick data or the M1 bars?

Thanks,

 

Mike

1, bid ask is used.
2, Why don’t you just create another symbol called “EURUSD_tick” and import it there and you’ll have both. Otherwise you can delete your M1 data and import the tick data, you can still test on m1 data, SQ automatically converts to any timeframe as you know.
3, you cannot import both and have both in 1 symbol. Read #2. If you import tick, all timeframes will be recalculated from tick. Bid ask will only be used if you select precision testing: real tick.

Thanks, I will add it as a new symbol (with the Tick suffix like you suggest).

 

Cheers,
