Backtesting using Every Tick and 1 min OHLC yield very different result.
1 min OHLC is profitable while Every Tick is losing.

Would it be possible to perform the StopLoss() function at 1 min OHLC intervals
even when Backtesting Every Tick?
Would that make the strategy to be profitable?

Please tell something more about your SL logic. Basing on what you wrote I conclude that you update your SL every tick and thats why Bactesting every tick gives different result. Maybe try to change SL to update after close of each candle.

When you are backtesting on Every Tick data, you get a higher resolution of price data than when backtesting on 1 Min OHLC. Changing your EA to check the SL on M1 opens rather than on every tick will not make it profitable in real market trading.
