Once the backtestig is done. It is always convenient to do it at least 2 years ago, from the date it is done, the further back the profit factor
starts and is maintained, the safer the Expert advisor is.
It is possible to determine which Ea behaves best, you can download the Ea that you think are best for you, from MQL5 where the best experts
are, and you are sure that you were not scammed, here if you pay the rent or the Ea, you always will receive. Do the backtesting, in the
conditions of the broker you use, and compare them with each other, and you will see that the results you obtain will resemble the real
ones. This way you will have the possibility of acquiring or renting the one that performs best, with a very low possibility of error.
MT5 - Testing trading strategies on real ticks and the explanation is on this
If you need the most accurate representation of history data in the strategy tester, use "Every tick based on real ticks" mode. In this
mode, the tester downloads real ticks from a broker's trade server and uses them to display the price development. In case real ticks are
absent for some time intervals, the tester simulates the price just like in the "Every tick" mode. Thus, if the broker has all history of
the required symbols, you can perform testing of real historical data without artificial modeling. The drawback of the mode is a
significant increase in test time as shown in the comparison table above.

backtesting them, and I traded on demo for some time just to be sure that EAs are profitable.
With new builds of MT5: I will optimize the EAs from this thread to find the settings, and I will backtesting them
with 'every tick based on real ticks' - and it will be same as trading by those EA on real
account for many months or years!

If you are backtesting EA on MT5 using 'every tick based on real ticks' so it will be almost same with trading on MT5 platform
with some particular broker (because it is based on actual historical data).
Example, read this thread: Why is it better MT5 than MT4?? Does it have fewer
limitations ??? - this is the quote from the first post of the thread:
For more information about it - read this summary.
As i know - some coders/traders are converting their MT4 EAs to MT5 just to backtest them and/or to find the settings with
optimization to get the backtesting results that are closest to reality.
I am in forex and with Metatrader (started from Metatrader 3) from last century.And I know the following:
Because we are not talking about the future, right? As one famous coder told "future is not set". We are talking about past performance based on
