You should test it with real ticks. MT4's Every Tick test mode is not sufficient and may produce too good results. Either use a tick test tool for MT4 or convert your EA to MQL5 because under MT5 you have real ticks in tester.

Hi, scalper EA needs very high precision data and it is hard to backtest also this kind EA is very sensitive to market changes. Regards Greg
