I was wondering, now i that i have consistently profits  for a while, on demo…, how would that turn out on a real account?  Are there some limitations in the use of an expert advisor, regarding to how it is programmed, and which would that be, and does anybody know if FXOPEN, my broker, is reliable?

The data feed of demo accounts is not the same with real accounts in most brokers, so if your EA is a scalping one may have different results in real trading.

You'll never know until you try it live.

  1. Non-constant spread, slippage. TP/SL become market orders (more slippage/gaps) vs tester being exact. Delays (network, queuing.)
  2. Broker discussions are forbidden.

Forbidden by MetaQuotes.
Broker wars are prohibited on the forum too.
And the recommendation about something to use ("use my broker", "use this EA and you will be rich", and so on) is prohibited on the forum as well.

Because it is the risk to select good broker (good system, good EA), and if you are going to share your risk with everybody so - it is not.
