vladrac posted:IM NOT referring to spread increase AT ALL. The spread can be normal, but what Im talking about is the reason why some EAs only work on demo or show profitable results in tester but then when you take it to live account, it only loss. The only way to justify the EA is to test it live on real account which is what I have been doing and found EURUSD to be the best for me 1+ live account now. So you can go with whatever you like but Im just practicing my own theories. Its a good EA don't get me wrong.
If you at the backtest for 5+ years you will see EURUSD is the top performer... All im saying. Check it out, TBH I don't even think the other pairs make money. BUT that is just backtest, real results will be vastly different as this EA works off volatility, and we all know the fill can be Vastly different in volatile situations.
that is really not correct! This EA open trades on a bar open, 5 or 15min after the news event which is 99% of the time what triggers the volatility. Which means any spread increase is gone by that time!
Check for yourself and if you can prove me wrong, let me know!
My post had nothing to do with the performance of this EA... which had its time and can no longer live in this market conditions. in my view.
Anyway...I still dont see how in this particular EA, demo vs real will play much of a difference....
Ive seen EAs that are indeed impacted by demo versus live...and for sure it can be huge - see the famous million dollar pip...
But this one...dont see it...as I said the trades are taken during 'normal' condtions of spread and fills...price usually is not jumping up and down like a crazy bull by the time this EA enters the market.
Do you know if someone is running this on a DEMO these days? If yes we could just look...
maybe Ricky is still reading these and can turn his EA into a demo account so we can compare...
