MultiCharts64 Portfolio Backtester - "Point" data format?

Postby continue8 » 12 Feb 2014

I have experiment backtesting a strategy using
data1 =normal bar data (minute grids)
data2 = Point&Figure (0.0001 x 3 reversals) on EURUSD MCFX data

In Multicharts this is fine and appears to give an accurate simulation
however if I place the same strategy in the Portfolio Backtester
none of the results match the Multicharts (chart-based) simulation
if I use the data2 = "Point" data selection .

Why is this discrepancy ? Or is Point&Figure charting not possible in
the portfolio backtester ?

Hello continue8,

No charting is possible in the Portfolio Backtester. Portfolio Backtester operates with OHLC data values only.
"Point" resolution is not the same as "Point&Figure" chart type.
