For the SL/TP pips, I think it’s not 2 digit:
I’m using Premium Data BTCUSD, for a strategy the SL is 201936. I thought it means a SL of $2019.36. But in “Report – Journal”, the first trade opens at price $4342.1 and the SL is $24536.7, which is $4342.1+$20194.6
So I guess if I want to set a SL of $100, the pip I should put would be 1000?
I’m playing around with EAs on BTCUSD and have some questions:
1. For Stop Loss and Take Profits, they are in pips. So if I want to set a $100 stop loss, the Stop Loss I should fill out in EA Studio should be 10000, right?
2. In “Strategy – Report – Balance Chart – Long balance, Short balance, Market”, I want to compare the EA performance with Market. The backtest is from 08/30/2017 to 09/07/2021, during which BTC-USD price raised about 10x ($4565~$46914). My account’s starting balance is $10000, I’m expecting the “Market” curve in the report to hit around $100000 as a reference. But in fact it ends around $13800. I wonder how is that calculated?
