    I have a databank of main currency pairs:

    M1 quality, ~5000 days for every pair.

     

    Genetic builder gives me some nice strategies, but when I’m testing them in MT4 I’m having totally different results.

     

    Here’s the genetic builder “List of trades” window:

    And here’s same strategy in MT4 tester:

    I have trades on totally different dates, times and price levels, often with different volume (when using money management).

    I’m generating strategies with M1 precision and testing them in MT4 with tick precision.

    I’ve tested all pairs, same error everywhere, even worse with the metals.

     

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hello,

     

    it seems you are using limit and trailing orders in your strategy. For that it is highly recommended to use the tick data even in SQ. 1 minute data might be insufficient. Also make sure you test on the very same data (MT4 and SQ) using correct timezones

    1. If I use “Enter At Stop” orders, is it recommended to use Tick Data precision?
       
    2. If I use “Move Stop Loss to BE”, is it recommended to use Tick Data precision?

    Dont use 4H TF on SQ 3.8.1. there can be a bug specially if you are using time shifted data. i dont understand why this basic bug is not fixed yet

    Yes,

    if you using Tick based indications use Tick data.
