It is unlikely you can backtest an EA with CSS since it uses data from multiple pairs.
To the best of my knowledge, backtesting is possible only when you need data from 1 pair.

OIC, thanks Spidey, forward testing only it is then :yahoo:

Cheers

Hi there, excuse the noob questions...

Concerning the BE and Jumping stop functions in the EA's, can these two be used together? How exactly does the jumping stop work?

eg I set the jumping stop to 50 pips for example...price moves in my favour by 50 pips and it seems that instead of moving the SL to 0 and waiting for the next 50 pips to jump, it moves it directly to +50, which means that price will inevitably retrace and hit my SL...

Am I understanding / using the jump stop incorrectly? I am probably misunderstanding the whole shebang...

Thanks

This are the settings used JumpStep=10; means every jump step moves the SL 10 pips
SLMinDistanceToPrice=30; means min distance from the new SL to the actual price must be bigger than 30 pips...
