I am wondering if it makes sense to optimize an EA on long period.

Usually i do not leave my EA running for more than 4 weeks so the question is: Does it makes sense to back-test for 12 months? Maybe 3, 4 or 6 months will give better result.

What do you think?

I think 6 months is good.. its enough time to test all market conditions..

Hi,

Different strategy will yield different testing conditions. Even highly educated statistician will debate on this topics.

So don't take any advice directly for your own specific Trading strategy.

Secondo me il motivo perchè si deve almeno testare su  un periodo 12 mesi e perchè  si hanno più possibilita i beccare falsi segnali per il nostro EA

infatti nel mio test  dopo tanti periodo positivi  mi becca  un periodo quasi dopo un anno , che mi sballa le condizioni BuySell

 

a presto
