Hello all

I have been back-testing a strategy on MT4 strategy tester and I noticed something odd. When I change initial deposit currencies and run the tester I get different results. All the other parameters are the same, all I change is the initial deposit currency.

Examples:

10000 USD - total net profit: 10269.19

10000 GBP - total net profit: 5313.12

10000 EUR - total net profit: 6383.20

10000 CHF - total net profit: 8447.02

The testing takes place in the same time frame. The total number of trades I get is the same, the win percentage is the same, number of ticks modeled is the same...

It looks like it has something to do with pip value for each currency. Can somebody explain why it does that?

Cheers

Paul
