Backtesting with data from CSV file

Anyone know why repeated back testing without changing any settings still yields different results each time?

Everything should be constant, the only variation (which never effected MT4 backtesting) is CPU usage.

I simply don't know how one could ever get consistent positive results with moving goal posts???

Any ideas anyone? Could it be my robot coding?

Which Spread settings do you use for backtesting? It must be "Fixed Spread" the same results.

I use fixed spread.

I have removed all variables I can as to obtain a repeatable test.

It looks like it's the robot coding, as testing using some of the free robots here yields consistent repeatable results.

I would like to make the move from MT4 to cTrader/cAlgo but tick-testing is a must-have. It's a deal-breaker for me as long as it's not available -- is there any estimate regarding when tick-testing would be implemented in cAlgo?

This feature is in our short term roadmap. We are going to release it in couple of months.
