Hi all,

I wanted to see if some clever person could shed some light on this..

I have an EA, back test results are good.. I'm having a problem with it though, I'm trying to run it on a demo account, with fixed spreads. For example, last night it made one trade. However when I then back tested it for the last night it should have made 3. 
Any idea why this is?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

Hello numpty, if you don't give us more information about what behaviour should be expected from the expert advisor, I think it's gonna be very difficult to help you. The problem could be anywhere...

Hi,

 

Malacrane, Its set to take trades in the Asian session, 11pm-7am GMT. Roughly it averages 3-5 trades overnight, I'm afraid I cant really give you much more information than this. It wasn't written by me. If your looking for specifications I can certainly have a better look. 

Doshur, it is every tick. Very odd in my opinion..

Thanks again
