I have seen this happen when:

1. Running a Tick History and OnNewRate;
2. Without running a Time period and OnNewCandle.

It happens because of the weekend Forex shutdown.

The Fores stops running on Friday and Starts again on Sunday. There are approximately 2 days when the Forex does not run.

When ActTrader runs in Tester mode, it looks for a minimum data history of 1 day. You set the number of days in the Tester under the "Test" tab where it says "Start history from (days ago):". You can't set this history for less than 1 day.

Here is the problem. When you start running on Sunday after the weekend Forex shutdown, ActTrader looks for the Tick History for 1 day. It cannot find a Tick history for a full 1 day because of the weekend shutdown. So it gives the first price without the decimal by mistake.

If you are running EURUSD, and the price is 1.4221, ActTrader may read this as 14221.

Now, this may not happen in all cases during weekend shutdown. And it may only happen in Tester mode. But be careful with running Live on Sunday with only a Tick History and no OnNewCandle. Maybe ActForex can check this out and allow us to set the Test history to any time interval we like... even down to 1 minute... rather than in "day" settings only.
