i can respect your comment and i don't take any of it personally.
to address what you said
i agree this was the core of his question and i did understand it.
but. i did say, MY UNDERSTAND IS.... and then proceeded to give my opinion
Now, me and @Haitao have had a good conversation in the past and i felt obligted to a point to give an opinion.
perhaps my opinion could have helped in some way.
Now. My Experience with Tick Data.....
I've done testing on and off using Forex Tester 2, My understanding what that the "SAMPLES" that were taken are from Tick Data (on a Per Tick Basis) and then higher time frames are derived from the tick data.
I don't do so much Tick Data testing anymore these days because what i use works and to be honest i test indies from time to time, but my method of trading is working for me.
the only time i would get back into Testing Tick Data is if i decided to incorporate a new instrument into my trading.
so yes, my information may be a around 2 years dated approx.
my theory was if i contributed it might help.
now... (i have taken no offense to your comments, THAT'S ALL GOOD)
but it would seem that perhaps i need to re think whether i should or not post , the next time a post arises
I understand if someone has the answer, then post it
i also honestly thought that it's not really harmful to put forward an opinion because doing so MAY result in the O.P. having a lightbulb moment and coming to the answer.
that's all i was getting at.
Now... what?? , You believe maybe i should not, is that correct?
Feel free to tell me honestly
and also let me say this...
The way we are talking right now, is perfect, I have no issue with you if we talk like this.
if we continue like this, Mate, we will never have an issue and i will never get offended, you can say what you want, I won't be offended
THIS IS FINE
I just don't like Attacks or rudeness or people bringing up family members when it's not relevant.
but this is ok
so.. you don't need to tread carefully with me,
Just keep speaking to me like this and BE FRANK ( I prefer honesty) and i'll do what i can to rectify things that i am inadvertedly doing wrong
