Hi

Im just curious about something, if i backtest my EA during the same period at the ATC, would the results be comparable. I understand there would be a slight difference due to slippage but apart from that, can i compare it against the best EA made?

Well if you use the exact same indicator - but with different parameter and different trading algorithm - then, it is comparable.

I mean I can compare same class of BMW and Mercedes, but I don't think its comparable to compare them with Ferrari or Lamborghini.
