Property Value

Type: Boolean


If set to true (which is default), then each bar from the data store will be split up into 4 ticks for the Open, Low, High, and Close prices. These ticks will be processed separately, which means that if a position is filled on the open, the profit target or stop could be hit on the high or low (or close).

If set to false, then the bar is not converted to ticks. It is processed all at once in the paper trader, and there is no opportunity to submit orders between the different bar prices.
