Hello Community,

 Since this September I am running my EA with real money on Alpari and Activ Trades.

I just did a backtest with the Strategy Tester for this month (on Alpari and Activ Trades Demo Acc.) and  it was kind of confusing.

 

The Backtests (execution mode: random delay and every tick) showed me a loss of 60% of my Balance till today.

But in Real Trading mode (same settings, time, etc.....) my accounts show a loss of only 5 dollars...

 

Since this is my first month with real money i am quite of nervous :)

 I dont know how to rate this. Is this good or bad?  

 

Thanks in advance
