Default About bid data type


I am back testing the EURUSD currency, BID Data Type.

I am trying to open sells at the bid and buys at the bid + 2 pips. I thought I could do that with the slippage (as a simulator of the spread). However, Sells open AT BID - slippage. Is there a way by default I can enter sells at the bid and buys at the bid plus spread?

Thanls in advanced.

You could try using stop or limit orders here instead of market orders, or stop-limit orders to control the price a bit differently.

How are you currently opening orders?
