I wanted to do some accurate backtesting and googled how.
The above youtube video doesn't work anymore - only paid versions of the program for mt4 terminals build 765 and up.
We are already at build 950. With a lot of effort you can downgrade to a previous build and it will still be too high.. I have searched high and low for a terminal of previous build. I found a few that were in the 200-300 range. Once again the launcher couldn't start the mt4 terminal, too old.
Eventually after hours of searching and tweaking, I found a way to do 99% modelling quality backtests easily and unlimited if anyone is interested.
You will be amazed at the difference between 90% and 99.9%. I believe that past behavior is not a predictor of future behavior, but it gives us an accurate picture
My accounts will ALWAYS show high DD. This is done purposely to maximize our withdrawals every week.
