As I stated in all the analysis that I supplied to you, just because a back-test shows profit, does not mean that it will do so in the "real world". There are hundreds (or thousands) of EAs that show profitable back-tests, yet fail miserably when live.
The reports I detailed out for you, showed all those pitfalls and problems that the so called "recovery" would cause. In fact those very suspicions were reflected on the real trade data that you supplied, and the proof was that your real life results were not so profitable at all (no matter how you tried to justify the differences). You may defend your position as you did at the time, by saying that it was the result of you changing parameters during the course of its runs, but the analysis showed otherwise.
I was reverse engineering it for you, because you only have a closed-source version
that is limited to account and broker and will break if major builds
are released. So, if it is so profitable, why did you stop working on it and lose interest. In fact you ceased all contact, even though I was providing you with valuable data and insight and offering to code it for free!
Given the well versed knowledge I have of how your various EAs work, and given my experience in both coding and trading, I can emphatically state that they are NOT reliable and that claiming otherwise is misleading.
You are obviously NOT qualified to state that, and you are incorrect in your statement, and I repeated this many times. The data is irrespective of time-zone. For a given liquidity provider and feed source, the price changes at the same time all over the world at exactly the same time no matter what the clock says. When one prepares tick data for a particular broker or time-zone, the time data is automatically corrected for that case with the tools that are used.
The data was in no way incorrect with respect with the your brokers time zone and I even proved that but comparing it to your live results. You are only using that as an excuse to justify the "bad" results, and you know that.
If your intention is to gain a following and making yourself feel GREAT
by having people "believe" you, then please go right ahead, but you will
only be misleading yourself if you wish to continue trading under that
false belief. Its your money!
Again, STOP spreading misinformation!
Please do not confuse back test performance with live performance.
It is if you think that a backtest produces a valid indication of future performance.
It has never been like that and it can never be like that, but there is a group of people that believe otherwise.
This is not a problem as such, but the problem arises when these people start to 'claim' backtest reports as being live results.
Why do you pay for tick data? ask yourself because i don't have an answer for that .
Maybe because you are one of those believers..
No i am not.
Who told you that EA's are illusive ?
They are not but the backtests results can be and that is the issue when they are presented as trustworthy.
Who told you that EA's depend on backtests ?
