Many pairs and many timeframes . . . but why does the timeframe matter ? candles hide much, much more information than they give, why would you want to use them ?

So how do you confirm that the EA you just made is ok for live trading?

I test it in the Strategy Tester without wearing rose tinted spectacles.

I mean which standard or some principle the result of Strategy Tester meets, you will think the EA is Ok.

Such as, have a good gains or small drawdown and so on.,

I look for consistency, I look at it's WR vs R:R . . . without any Optimization.
