Hi,

 

can i ask you,

how is the difference? How exactly the backtest works? It is necessary for me. I have strategy good aat tick and M1 but not good at Selected TF precision.

 

Thanks to all.

When you select higher timeframe SQ calculates it using M1 data so it can be considered more accurate than the other method. If you have a strategy which includes Stop or Limit orders the ‘Selected TF precision’ testing accuracy might not be sufficient for you and that could be a reason why you get different results.

So you think it is not a mistake that strategy works only at tick and M1, because Selected TF precision is not so exact?

In general sense yes but I would have to see the strategy to say that testing method causes differences.
