Demo accts are useless for tester or live as it is a broker smoothed-over version of live quotes. I used a live acct at ibfx and over 6 month period prior to December tfot did fine in test, doubled the acct @ 5% risk and dd not bad. Now I'm running live$ on Finfx micro and ibfx and since prior to Xmas these have generally followed tfot of iticsoftwares on AlpariUS, not by trade-by-trade but by general equity win/lose path curves. Currently it seems like it is returning to recovery, hopefully the market doesn't have too much more of these instability periods, but even if it does, I feel tfot will just recover. I was at first getting kinda skedptical of tfot due to my ways of looking at test total replication expectancy, or trade-by-trade replication of AlpariUS, but tfot seems to be its own 'animal' that chews thru the quotes on any broker, surprisingly. Although I admit it still will take many months before jury returns, otherwise as Boris suggests, I should be at fxopen.com's ecn low initial deposit of $1000. I have my Finfx micro on myfxbook if you want to track it. Acct members/Batcheler
