Why different number of signals showing in backtest if I backtest a strategy just by change of stop loss


#1

I took streak basic plan subscription today. While backtesting a strategy on HeikinAshi 15 min chart, I found that two different no. of signals generated just by changing the stop loss. It should be same practically. Can someone from streak technical team help me on this.

Reducing or increasing stop loss or tp, will lead to earlier or later exits, causing the entry condition to have more or less candles to be validated for. Eg. If you have already entered a position, streak will not generate another entry signal unless the 1st one is closed even if condition is true on chart, So if stoploss hits before second signal, 2 notifications will be there otherwise only one.
