Question #6:
If your backtesting results are like the one attached,
can you expect to see the same trading it on real account?


Not at all; the real trading result will be different for sure! Because of emotion’s issue!


Backtests is from EA trading. There are no emotions...

The result on a real account depends on these parameters
1. If your strategy is over-fitted then the real account result will different.
2. If your EA pips expectancy is less then 5pips then commission and slippage will eat your profit.

Your EA is backtested on a 1min chart than most likely your pips expectancy should be less than 5pips. If your system is not over-fitted then I think there will be a drop of at least 30-40% on performance per trade basis.

The market will trade through it’s path of least resistance .

Question #6: answer
BT results are never the same as trading real accounts,
there are different reasons for that
1. Platform
- MT4 backtesting is rather useless unless you buy plugin to get 99.9% quality BT. Even such are not 100% reliable as it downloads and use dukascopy data, which may differ on your broker.
- MT5 BT is much better, if you perform tick BT results are very close. But always there might be issues with broker or server or... The cons is it is unbelivably slow even on my 64 GB RAM, 8 core server
- cTrader backtesting - it is very accurate, though platform itself is unstable and freezing often, during backtesting AND trading.
2. Execution - be it sllipage, spread increse, offquotes or other issues

Some robust strategies (EAs) are able to deal with slightly different conditons, some simply does not perform well on real.

Question #1:
There is a system trading just one pair, where you see negative pips yet it is profitable. What kind of system is it? The answer is martingale. But there is another system, do you try to find out?


Honestly, I didn't read the whole thread. It's interesting. I will do it whenever I find some free time.

Not sure if the question is answered,
My answer, it is Averaging Down system.

Will be back soon :)

I would use a online calculator to work that out. The margin will also change depending on the currency price
