Here's my system, just started beginning of August on live account as i believe demo accounts are not a true picture of a systems effectiveness.

I did test and backtest, but demo accounts are not true picture of a system, you can't publish results from your system to others on demo accounts, they may give an indication of system, but it you can't rely on the results, only way to do this is on live account.

Yes, you are right.

For how long did you test/backtest it? And what were the results with the demo?

Thanks.

Results on demo acct were better, there was no slippage, and spreads were better, tested from beginning of the year..

we'll see how it goes, if it carries on with performance like this i will be happy, especially considering the volume in markets is kind of lowish at the moment due to holiday season, hopefully September will be better .. we'll see. <img src='' alt='😄'/>

developed on my own-ish , based on trawling forum's etc looking at various good systems commercial and free and tweaking and incorparating into my own. Probably what everybody does anyway. So not all my own idea's.
