Im wondering if there a bug in the code? not being a coder i would have no idea
thanks in advance

trading GOLD as CFD is a little bit tricky, but everything could be set properly – first thing, why your price in backtest has 3 decimals? so you are using setting 0.001/0.01?
did your broker has really 3 decimal point GOLD – i know only 1 broker with 3 decimal poing GOLD and thats the Admiral Markets
every other broker i use has only 2 decimals
BTW – slippage 10 for gold is not enought, i am using 40
here is for example 1 gold strategy – and the backtest (black line) is accurate with a MT platform trades (red line) – but for gold i am using setting 0.01/0.01 because my brokers has only 2 decimal points CFD contract
