How to test with variable Spread

Post by fardibavar »

Hi,
I am working on a EA with Spicky strategy and is so sensitive for changing spread, from other side I can not find any "variable spread" option in your expert Tick data.
Will I be able to correctly read the real & natural of spread on that Tick time, if I internally monitor the spread number by using "Spread=Ask-Bid"?

Thanks

Hi Fardibavar,

If you are referring to Metatrader 5, then you can access the variable spread by performing a Ask-Bid calculation. If you are referring to Metatrader 4, then this feature is currently in plan but not available yet.

Hope this helps.
