Is there a way to ensure a backtest uses only symbols from a specific dataset.
Needs more explanation.
I want to test a single symbol from a specific ASCII dataset and I want the backtest to use that same dataset for all other symbols that are used in indicators.
How can I do this?
What's happening is that even though I'm selecting a symbol from the ASCII dataset to run the backtest, the resulting backtest chart contains more bars that the symbol in the dataset. It's like it's searching for the symbol in all datasets and choosing the first one it finds according to some rule.

Ok, I think I discovered why -- looks like it's governed by the order of Historical Providers in Data Manager.

Turns out this is correct.

Getting closer now. Most backtested trades are the same as those in WL6. Something else is affecting a handful of others.
