    HI All,

    I’ve been trying to find help on this but can’t seem to locate.. hopefully it’s an easy one.

    I’m in the Re-Tester section of Strategy Quant and in the Spread settings. For GBPJPY right now I’m seeing a spread of 47 currently.

    I know I should put in an average but is it 47 that I put into the settings or should it be 4? I’m aware that its 4.7 pips but it’s 47 points..  is the spread expecting points or pips?

    How do I ensure I’m using the correct setting?

    Hello,

    the spread is set as number of pips not points. So considering the quotes you show you should set 4.7 (pips) spread in SQX

    my advice – dont set the exact value you see now in the platfrom – because of changes in the spread, widening in the evening or in the volatility times – set always some higher value – something like 1.5-2x times higher – i use for GBPJPY spread as 6 pips
