I was reading Price_Channel_v6-ea thread and found interesting EA:
I created some pre-set files for GBPUSD, D1 timeframe.
And, for the people who like backtesting I did sme backtesting:
Preset file #1, without MM.
Every tick, modeling quality 90%,
since 04th of January 2005 till 28/04/2006,
Profit factor 2.17.
Preset file #2, without MM.
Every tick, 90%,
Profit factor 3.12.
Preset file #3, MM.
Profit factor 2.94.
It was D1 timeframe.
Everything is attached.
I am not fully belive in backtesting. But I saw in commercial thread that people are selling EAs because of good backtesting only. And some people still believe in this backtesting.
That is why I stated to backtest EAs before forward testing.
More to follow.

I tried these on the backtesting, and didn't get any results like you had, same dates too...
I did exact the same as Codersguru said in some threads.
Some EAs testing in this section do not need to be backtested because some of them are well-known EAs. The other EAs were developed inside this forum and I was fully participating in the development so I know them.
As to some very new EAs so I think I am backtesting just to know how it works.
Nice one newdigital.. thanks.
I want to ask the members' suggestion: should I test this EA?
