My stop loss incorrectly being triggered

#1 Postby rchua » Sun Aug 28, 2022 9:08 pm

I was doing my backtesting on Forex Tester 5 on AUS200 index. I had a long position (ticket #71 in account history) open and my stop loss got hit even though the market did not go down. Please see screenshot. Market was going up but the software closed my long position thinking my stop loss got hit.

Hello,

Thank you for the screenshot.

It looks like date of testing has switched from 22nd of February back to 21st, looks like data in your project is corrupted.

Please open Data Center window, click on AUS200 symbol and then click "Clear history" to delete old data.
Then download newest data again, close Data Center and re-load your current project.

This should help.
