disappointing result today, broker opened double the number of trades on the recent 1h longs normallay we open 12 pairs, but it opened 20 pairs and there is no clear reason for this. as this is a demo FXCM can't help
If I were you I wouldn't demo test anything with FXCM MT4.
Take a closer look at the M1 chart and you will see lots of gaps between the price and if you compare it with another Broker those gaps didn't happen. So you are getting a screwed up test that won't happen neither with a FXCM MT4 Real account or any Demo or Real account from another broker.
This is from my own experience just a few weeks ago when testing the same EA with the same settings on FXCM and on FXDD I noticed the results were quite different and found those data gaps.
