Nice backtest, what are you risking per trade there?
Looks like about 15% on each trade. Is that right?

You will never get the same results live, this back test strategy section should be scrapped as I know for a fact when back testing with Alpari you are getting the spread of a Pro Account for running tests, can't open low deposits accounts on a Pro Account!eek

Suspect all brokers provide better data to use for back tests lulling us in to false sense of security without us knowing what settings are used for the back test

I think most people are aware that backtesting is flawed. There are certain things people can do to get around this. One of which is to obtain better tick data.

I think backtesting is a valid exercise and I have one rule. If it blows up in backtesting it's in the bin. If it passes backtesting then there is half a chance it might work live.

Also the smaller the pip values your EA is dealing with and the shorter the timeframe the higher the discrepancy between the backtest and live trading is likely to be.

Problem with backtesting is that you had historical events taking place, like Hungary, German short suspension etc. History never ever repeats itself, but there is repeating patterns. A trader takes historical events into consideration as he trades. My best trading is done when there is no news, no downgrades , no surprises, just the normal ebb and flow of the market.
