Hi,

Without seeing the specific back tests properties i can only make a guess, however It looks like your back test is being run on Monthly data.  Change your charts time frame to 1 Month and you will see the monthly bar for August 2021 has a closing price of $132.84 (last close of the month when viewing a daily chart).

That is where the price is coming from.

If you want to run the back test as if it were on a daily chart, change the Back Tests time frame to Daily.
