Modelling quality for H1?

Post by tarnteach78 »

Is it possible to use Tickstory to get 99% Modelling quality when backtesting on hourly bars instead of just ticks? How?

I do not need tick backtesting because my EA only runs on new bars and testing with ticks is much much slower.

Hi Tarnteach78,

If you are referring to testing in "Open price" mode instead of "Tick mode", then yes, you can use this mode to do your back-test but by virtue of the fact that you are only simulating the open tick and not all ticks, it will not be 99% modelling quality.

If you want to test with tick data (99% modelling quality) but only take the first bar of every hour, you will need to code this into your EA.

Hope this helps.
