Signal, which has a 15y proven record and in profit every year? Yes.

I am pretty sure there isn't any.

I'm not talking about the signal history but the strategy it self.

You didn't mention the word strategy but you did mention signal.

A strategy that shows 15 year good returns used in a signal...

I never trust strategy tester result even if modeling quality is 99.9%.

Strategy tester has no slippage and you can narrow spread less than the real one. 

Also there are many other factors can have high impact on the result. The most

important one is that historical history doesn't mean future will have the same influence.

Forward test is a MUST.

Currently using EA with less than 10% DD and almost doubles account size in a month. This is something to pay money for.

History gains are not a guarantee for future.  I saw 15 Jan 2015 peoples lost accounts in seconds even they had a bright track record. Now a days STP/ECN brokers avoiding to give negative balance protection when they mentioned clearly SL have no guarantee.  This general forum should be as educational purpose and for valid questions.

If you could deposit $5000 into your own signal for 15 years with %10 average monthly grow then you should have $141,141,041,370.06 right now.  Why do you need subscribers :)
