    Default Visual backtest result different from non-visual

    Anyone else faced this problem before?

    I already backtest off-line to lock the spread, but for some unknown reason, my visual backtest result comes off significantly different from the non-visual.
    I also do not use Objects for entry/exit logic.

    Googled about it but nothing conclusive..

    I think it depends on the used indicators. If you e.g. use a current bar value, it may happen the conditions repaint quite a lot and are fixed at bar closing. So what you see may not be what the EA has seen when doing the backtest.

    I see what you're getting at... It *might* be possible that when the visual test is done, there is a speed issue, where before the buffer is cleared, a new tick is registered... I dunno. I'll shift everything down and see if it makes a difference.
