Strategy Analyzer: Profit and Entry on Same Bar Scenario


How are you doing? I am still learning about developing and testing strategies in NT.

NT7 (Using NT Strategy Analyzer only OHCL historical data with CQG feed)
5 min bar chart
Stop Loss : -17
Profit Target: 7 ticks (I also test with 11 tick profit)

1. I am reviewing the Strategy Analyzer and I notice that each time the entry and profit target price is on the same bar, the profit target is assume hit first, so the trade becomes a win. I am seeing this alot after a back test on the chart.

2. See attachment please. The backtesting simulation resulted in a win (profit) even though the OPEN was above the above the profit target price, which means price actually went up first, then down to entry. However, this trade resulted in a profit, when it should have been a loss.

3. I am worried that problem 1 and 2 is giving my false performance results in my back test.

Question :
1. Is it true that if profit and entry occurs in the same bar, Strategy Analyzer defaults that trade to a win? (I do know that if the stoploss and entry is in the same bar, Strategy Analyzer defaults to loss)

2. Can you please comment about question 2 above and provide some clarity how I can obtain more accurate backtesting?

Thank you,
