Can the global variables set by an live indicator be read in a backtest?

If you backtest past period with tool that provides only actual data... then you can backtest but it won't refer the desired data at that time.

No clue.
There is a MQL4/5 community... expert coders will tell you.
Backtest purpose is just to check algo works correctly.
If you wanna test it with live market conditions.... you open a demo account, and you let it run. That's the best way to backtest.

Yes they can. What do you have in mind? I did something similar where i had to import live open trades to the backtest.

Thanks
