You're working on back test? I could never get reasonable back-tests results. I have forward demo test to compare to and starting at the same place my forward test did, the back-tests always missed and by a fair margin. The only thing I can guess at is there may be missing data to cause the differences. I do not use back-tests, I don't trust them and don't believe when others show me their back-test for something. I have 7 years of dealing with them, and still haven't found them trustworthy.
That said, I can tell you why this one won't back-test. Normally the take profit is calculated but the PIG uses a different way to handle the changing daily swap. It calculates the expected profit internally and only closes when the profit is at least that calculated amount. Back-tests don't have any way to know what the profit is at any any given point, so it will close some trades but not others and so on.
The only way to test the Passive Income Generator is to put it on a demo and watch it. Watch the draw-down, watch how it closes the trades. While you are testing the system, you will also be learning about the system and every investors friend, patience. I'm not in any hurry to get your money, take your time and 'learn before you earn'.
The PIG account above was begun on July 1st 2013 and as of today (3/26/14) it is up 20.28% rounding up to 9 months of trading, comes to 2.25% a month on average. Just out of curiosity, why not run a B-T on the aud/cad July 1st 2013 to present and compare the data from the forward test to the back-test. You stand the best chance of good data if your just looking back one year, or less as the case is here.
I need to take some down time. If I don't get back with you as quickly as you deserve, I hope you can forgive me.
