    SQ generates a strategy based on selected time frame only fast Daily D1

    I test is in MT4 open price only – all good, strategy results match more or less SQ and MT4

    but when I test on MT4 tick backtest then suddenly strategy loses rapidly

    why is that?

    SQ does not have a reliable on new open bar event check… it reacts to every tick?

    selected TF only for DAILY strats is not enough. But selected TF only is your choise, you can have tick data or 1M data, so you can choose whatever precision you want

    imagine that you are testing only on OHLC values for the whole day – with this kind of backtest you will never found out if the SL or TP are hitted first

    build on selected TF only and always retest on 1M precision. 1M precision is good enough also for daily

    ic

    so open bar strategies are useless?

    only tick is good enough or live trading?

    then what is the purpose of Prescision Selected timeframe only (fastest) if it has no meaning?

    i told you – i use only 1M precision

    i am building mostly on selected TF only, but only TF M15-H4, the build process is much quicker and after that i am doing retest on 1M precision

    for daily strategies i am using 1M precision in building already, because daily strats are fast and selected TF only doesnt make sense to me for daily strats

    so you manually retest?

    no automation?

    but all strategies generated on H4 will fail when properly tested with M1

    you need to teach and teach and teach

    with SQX you can automatically do almost everything – you have crosschecks in the builder, where you can test with higher precision, or you can use custom workflows, where you can make tasks and describe your whole workflow…so i am not doing anything manually
