Understanding real-time simulation results

Real-time simulations never completely correspond to what would have happened in reality, as they depend on factors that cannot be taken into account such as order execution time or spread.

In order to correspond as closely as possible to reality, we have defined these few rules:
The order is placed after the condition is fulfilled (and not on the same candle).
For market orders, we use the closing price of the candle that follows the condition.

Real-time simulations take fees into account.
