Backtesting Vs real

Hi everybody,

How much have you made with yours EA on backtesting?

Very different to real execution?

Thanks for your responses.

Very different to real execution?

  • variable slippage
  • variable spread
  • stops close at market (#1 and #2) Tester closes exactly at the stop.
  • Price gaps inter-bar.
  • It can take seconds to open an order (#1 and #2) During news, it can takes minutes. Tester is instantaneous.
  • Connection problems, more minutes.

Thanks for the responses.

Nobody said it would be easy :wink:

I’m forward testing.
