Hi to all,

Does anyone use Multicharts with MCFX (Fxcm) dataFeed for Forex?

I try to do Extended backtesting (using ask and bid price) but the differences with normal Backtesting (using only bid price) are totally different. Because I use a simple daily strategy theoretically the spread must be a little effect on results but...instead they are totally different.

the settings are : Extended backtesting with bar Magnifier (1minute) on EurUsd.

I have serious doubts on the reliability of data provided for ask and bid price.

What do you think about this?

Thank you.
Bye.
