wahjay posted: Great results waow ! i will try your settings.. but risk 5% is a lot do you think i will get similar results using 1% risk or your whole strategy is based around the 5% risk ? thanks !
probably similar curve with 1% risk but ofcos lesser profit/dd. very dependent on broker though. same broker can still produce different results with same ea. ive seen losses against profits on same broker after a round of trades
