    Hello Speculation101,

    The typical cause of differences between backtest and real-time or playback is a lack of 1-tick intra-bar granularity, and if Calculate is .OnPriceChange or .OnEachTick, a lack of TickReplay.

    Below is a link to a forum post that discusses and demonstrates how to write information to file to find out what is causing differences.
    Citizens of the NinjaTrader Community, A common question we hear from clients is 'why are results from backtest different from real-time or from market replay?'. Live orders are filled on an exchange with a trading partner on an agreed upon price based on market dynamics. Backtest orders are not using these market dynamics.
