stevetrade posted: This is an interesting discussion. I still have the 10 year backtest in my strategic history and while the EA in backtest never suffered six losing months in a row before there are plenty of times early on where it lost 3 months in a row and then not long after did so again. Analysing the backtest history for a period from 1999 - 2001 shows that the EA performed far worse overall than it has here. You can see a snapshot of this attached.
Whether the EA will ever perform again remains to be seen. The main question to ask is whether you are prepared to accept the chance of sideways movement for years at a time. I think the key thing to learn here is to take a good hard look at the backtest data you generate and ask whether you are happy with every period of trading history that the backtest shows you, if similar patterns where to occur again.
I for one have moved on from using this EA.
Best regards Steve
most of the EAs are like this ... many of are bullshits ..
