in context with another developing problem, I coded a strategy which I use in Amibroker also in another backtesting platform. The initial problem was easily identified. But then I found some other differences between the signals of the other program and the signals of AB. It took a while till I found out the problem: Different indicator values which are the result not becasue of different calculation methods but because of bad (iqfeed) ticks in AB.
I think I have read somewhere on the AB site that you are able to correct this issue with a backfill of the data. So I tried the following:
Here is a bad tick:
I tried to correct it with this:
But when I look into the chart again, the bad tick (and therefore the wrong indicator value) is still there.
When I select the chart window again and press the right mouse button on the plugin-status field in the right below corner and select “Force backfill”, the bad tick is corrected:
I use AB extensively for scanning/exploration and it would be really important for me to get rid of the bad ticks in an efficient manner (not by starting the process with Force Backfill option for every single symbol). Is there a way, please?
