    Hi

    Im robustness testing XAUUSD on other markets but not sure which is best to test on. My 1st thought was to test on Silver XAGUSD but the spreads and pip/tick values are different so i cannot successfully back test on these with reliable results. Is there a way around it? or prehaps a better market to backtest on?

     

    thanks in advance

    there is no other market for the GOLD, you can only use different TF, as Mabi said

    ive noticed for my xauusd i have 2 decimal places  on pepperstone see below

     

     

    compared to dukascopy i notice

    Im assuming i need to change the tick step from the 0.01 for dukascopy to 0.001 for my pepperstone and keep the tick size the same as 0.01 (same as dukascopy data downloaded.

    i can trade this symbol from as low as 0.01 lots on my account

     

    assuming these changes can i then build and test strategies on silver?

     

    thanks in advance
