BackTest Trade Activity Log Decimals in the incorrect locations

Hello,

When I run an automated backtest using the "accurate trading system backtest" replay mode, my trade log is coming out with additional numbers before the decimal. For example our trades are saying each stop loss is 2500.00 instead of 25.00 and our trade prices are all 1208000 instead of 12080 for the NQ.

I am using the SC data - all service for the backtest and confirmed with the symbol settings in NQ to make sure there was nothing funky there. I am sure I am missing a setting but any help is much appreciated.

Thank you

It is NQH3.CME on the SC-All Data connection.

That is the problem. That is not the correct symbol. You need to use this:

NQH23-CME

You cannot use a symbol which does not match the service that is selected.
