Hi guys,

I have back tested an EA on the Stategy Tester on MetaTrader 4.

The results are great of it. I tested the strategy of a 1 minute time frame at a period of 2 years.

So I activated the EA on three currencies. But all the positions (more than 10) are losses.

How is this possible? I don't think it's bad luck. What do I missed?

time your order needed to open new trade, might be more then average time you have between two ticks in history

But the time to order a new trade is maybe two seconds or less. The other problem is that the EA opened more then 10 positions a day.

The back test results as a average of 2 new positions a day.It's so different.

And when I back test the EA over the last week, I don't get the same entry points as the forward backtesting.

I tested the EA in the every tic mode.

it can happen you get more then 7 ticks of your broker in two seconds.

So what chance do you think there is your EA can trade every tick in live mode ??

Try something like putting a limits and check if the order already opened or not.
