i've got the following problem when testing ea:
The result in optimization and testing without optimization are different (same parameters).
I think that come from the spread not taken into consideration in optimization mode.
can somebody could confirm or indicate me the origin of the error?
Thanks a lot by advance.
ps: for information it's MT4 with tickstory.
tickstory give you better data than standard mt4 but i belive for testing purpose mt5 platform is best . it give you close to 100% including slippage and floating real spread by default.
start the test on the weekend, the current spread is likely to be very
1) apologize for the wrong posting.
2) everytime i mention a spread, the spread is the same in optimization and testing, so it is not the current that is question.
I 've just run a test and the optimization proposition result are really different when you test this result (strategy tester).
This is why, i wonder, from where come this difference.
As most of the difference come in the 1min timeframe modelisation.
I suppose it come from the spread not be taken in consideration in optimization mode.
But it's a supposition and need a confirmation.
You can make a test and try a strategy in 1 min time frame, see the result in optimization, and try to apply one in the test without optimization.
That will result in a different result, strange.
