   I don't see the reason why the trades differs, because all of the brokers should have the same prices, don't they?

First of all i would be greatful if you could tell me why when i try to download history there are empty spaces? I have break between January and March so i can't do the backtests :-/ I'm searching but can't find the question. The history is downloaded from metaquotes anyway, so i don't think it is anyhow connected with my broker (i tried to download it on another broker and there's a gap too 😡).


I's about the product CFD. I tryed to understand why a difference and i forgot sorry, it's a technical stuff but do not really worry about that you just have to accept it,you won't be abble to change anything about it (unfortunatly...) as a little private.

I do not know a lot of stuff about backtesting and i never tryed to really understand that because backtesting with MT4 are known as not reliable for specialist (it's what i heard about it). I have to work on it in the next month. Main problem is to get a good and reliable historical database. That's where everything start from...

I took the history from alpari history center, and the results for 2011 year doesn't differ so much with the FGB results (monthly it would be about 15 pips total less, but yearly it would be even more than FGB gained). In 2012 my backtest results says that calculating it monthly i would get 1595 pips, yearly 1402 pips, while FGB gained on his account already 1372 pips.

After this calculations i guess some trades may differ, maybe those few last of them were just an example...
We'll see the results then with my broker.

And coming back to my questions..
I asked about leverage because I want to keep the same risk ratio and avoid margin call.

I hope that this EA will work fine on VPS.

However, If it would be a difference with the brokers then the Backtest with hard set values would effect with exactly the same trades like FGB has. But it doesn't, i have the same results in backtest for the last week (or two) that appeared on my account.

Maybe the point is in 5 digit brokers ...

Of course i agree that broker who disconnects client may affect trades results (unfortunately mine does it sometimes, i don't know why, i will have to talk with them, but hopefully FGB isn't active that much so i think it shouldn't be affected).

Not at all. There isnt a physical exchange like with stock trading for Forex. Brokers have different liquidity providers and last prices at a given point in time are slightly different between them. You just have to see any broker as one single exchange. Thats why signals are not exactly the same between brokers.

It depents. If you do backtests with data taken from MT, then you would get the same results no matter what broker dedicated MT4 you use. The pure data source disconnects shouldnt be s problem, since FGB wouldnt lose control over open positions. Only if MT4 would competely shut down, like when your VPS does a reboot positions get lost.

Since the last trade (29-05-2012), the EUR/USD fell more than 170 pips, and the robot has done nothing because the volatility has not reached the level to activate it.
Big pity not have took advantage of that big movement.
I think that this robot has much to be improved yet...

How about we apply a neuro network EA to FGB? Read more:
https://blog.iticsoftware.com/2012/05/24/forex-neural-net-filter.aspx

It costs $800 to integrate this EA (good for two computers). So I'd like to propose that we gather 8 interested traders and each pay $100. If the project is successful, later on each trader can have his own EA integrated and pay the extra amount. If the project does not reach success in improving the EA, each loses $100.

Sorry I don't fully understand your proposal. Can you be more specific ? I've worked with neural networks before (not in trading) and i know a bit about them, but I dont understand what do you wish to do exactly.
