The only way to test a system is to run it for at least 10 months and see how it goes... That allows to trader fill the gaps and make the necessary adjustments in the code if he uses the expert advisor.
Has anybody heard, that a broker give funds to one of their retail-client (traders)? I mean like for example: FXCM sees that one of their clients 'Trader Joe' is very profitable and they decide to invest in his performance. Is there such a thing? Just curious, although I have never heard about it. But why not actually?
Of course you are right. But i think the usage of demo account is to test run stratys. i will qoute this back after a year later or earlier depend on DD of the EA. LOL no one care about a strategy that run on demo account, so comme back with a real account.

No.. This never happens. What brokers do is that they silently copy trades of their top profitable traders 'without them knowing' and they make millions on their backs.
So how much do you think traders really makes from the forex market? I have heard that forex markekt is not really worth 4 trillion dollars a day. The real trading forex market for retail clients are only around 1 billion dollars a day maximum, thats why there is always liquidity reason and market moves once you trade big. Do you think its possible for a trader to make 200000 a day off forex market without the broker hunting them to death?
