Hello,

This system looks optimised for the last few years only. It will be interesting to see back tests of more than a decade with the well known ducascopy data set and a comparison with different data from other brokers to get an idea of the variation between different well known brokers data sets. This way we could get an insight of expectations and risks about broker dependencies.

Regards

Actually I feel anything pre-2015 is of little relevance in this current turbulent market. Of course it may settle down after the EU fails and dissolves, but that will be years.

Hello
Fine share
But can't make a perfect backtest and resultat
Because the parameter for moving average and
Macd does not work on backtest

You can test the parameter sma=0,sp=0 and MP=0
You are same backtest

I've not tried this EA with different parameters but I have thoroughly tested my own EAs with different MA setting and they definitely perform as expected with different settings.

EA wasn't optimized at all. It was written for the real market. but not as optimization process. Tests for stories aren't true. There is no automatic transition winter - summer in settings.
Any backtests for any year will show nothing useful. This system not GRAAL for backtests

I believe in usage tests over back tests any day.
As far as I am concerned this is a proved product.

Cheers

I give far more weight to forward demo tests than backtests. Then I give far more weight to real money accounts than demo.

I don't like your grid of adding a trade every 12 pips but I see the result with my own eyes.
Just don't risk any more than you ate prepared to lose.

I have looked at my trade history and I am just not seeing this pattern you keep referring to.

My trades were not 12 pips apart.

Can you please explain how you came to conclusion the EA is placing trades 12 pips apart?

BTW I only included a sample of the history, the history of my full account is view-able.
Again I do not see this 12 pip pattern you are saying the EA uses.

The four trades here took four days to place, 12th 16th 17th 18th.

How can that be if the EA is using some grid pattern 12 pips apart.

I think you are mistaken.
