Backtest vs Real Time

Postby kinwai » 21 Sep 2019

On backtest, when I set both IOG enabled and Bar Magnifier (Assume historical data supported) enabled , does it mean that the result (exclude slippage) most likely will be same as Real Time?

One supplement, the Bar Magnifier set by “Tick”

Thanks, TJ

I have read some of the above articles before, so may I conclude the most similar to real time settings are IOG enabled with Bar magnifier set as Tick?

One supplement, my strategy don’t need to go into detail as bid/ask level
