backtest on 2401 volume chart

Postby ac » 26 Aug 2006


I tried to do some system backtest on 2401 volume chart, i.e. I compressed 2401 contract data into 1 bar. I would like to verify the easylanguage concept here.

In the following statement:

MyMACD = MACD( Close, FastLength, SlowLength )

The close is the "close" value in the 2401 compressed bar rather than the value of each tick. Is my concept correct? When I apply an indicator on the volume bars, the indicator will also base on the close of the 2401 compressed bar, is it?
