Backtest Data Inaccuracy

I am getting poor back testing results on one minutes charts and when I verify it, the back testing data is wrong. But when I am watching the charts in charts panel, data look perfect. Please provide proper data for back testing the strategy. I need only one minute candle data. I don't need accurate tick data. If the candle open, high, low and close for the one minute or other time frame candles are accurate, that would enough for back testing.

Without proper back test data, I am unable to test my algo properly. Please help. I need only the data displaying in the chart as it is for testing.

Hi ranjicgnr,

Backtesting data is provided by the broker, not by cTrader. Also you need to be more specific regarding this issue. Which broker do you use and how did you conclude that the data is inaccurate?

Best Regards,
