Hi Everyone,

Looking to get some clarification on the Bar Magnifier. To date, I've looked around attempting to determine the useage of the Bar Magnifier when developing a strategy. (Specifically when using 13 point bar in MC) --we are currently using IOG. The question is, do we need to use the bar magnifier when backtesting/optimization? It seems like with IOG turned on, and bar magnifier..with 13 point doesnt matter what strategy we are backtesting..the length of time needed to test is dramatically increased..on a quad core processor. I just want to ensure I'm getting the most accurate results in backtesting/optimization.

Thanks in advance for the ideas and thoughts...
