Exactly... I would not bother forward testing them. If they were REALLY profitable they would be selling their signals on SignalStart or on ConnectForex.
By the way, there is no one strategy on SignalStart or ConnectForex which I would use WITH CONFIDENCE on a larger account. Why? Because even the best signals use one of the two following trading styles: 'Grids' or 'Hope & Pray'.
I know the stats and drawdown look bad but it's all from touching the automated system which I stopped doing. I've learned to just let it run as it was designed to do. This is the only strategy that I know of where followers can run a 2% Equity protection on top of the 19 pip stoploss to ensure no technical issues could ever hurt your account. After running this system for almost 1 year with a 14 year profitable backtest I can rest assure that using a stoploss of every trade is really the best way to trade ( also the hardest).
By the way you expect others to have confidence in your system when you don't? lol If you had confidence would you be trading your weekly rent money on it like you're doing now or some huge amount like few millions?
Although the above question was not addressed to me, let me answer it as a starter of this thread.
Yes, it is a real fact. There are some scam brokers which - usually collaborating with scammer signal or EA sellers as part of a Ponzi scheme - falsify results to attract clients for the brokerage and for the scammers... Sometimes the scam broker and the scam signal/EA seller is the same person...
Those 'hand-crafted' results will be published as REAL and VERIFIED results by MyFxBook, as MyFxBook would not know that the broker is a scam broker...
So I consider real and verified results (by MyFxBook) as 'really REAL', only if those results had been verified through a reputed, regulated and mainstream broker, e.g. Pepperstone, IC Markets, etc...
