Multicharts.NET v9 beta 2 - Currency conversion question

Postby YanickB » 15 Jul 2014

Hi,

in the new feature description, it is mention the following about currency conversion:

"To make the results as close to perfection as possible, we use actual currency rates for each day."

Does that mean that you are using only one rate per trading day? If so, this feature cannot be use to backtest intraday strategies...

Thanks.

Hello YanickB,

Only one rate per day is used for currency conversion.

Thanks for your answer.

What is this rate(close, typical price)? Where does it come from(data feed)?
