Yes, you can earn from EAs if you use it properly and the based on strategy is good, BUT ...

Most of EAs are not. Don't rely on Back-Tests at all. Only Forward-Test can give you the right

expectation.

TQ for the sharing, so the back-test result is totally different with forward-test?

can suggest any good EA?

not totally different.

personally I did some test and MT5 backtest is more reliable than MT4

the spread is embedded into the bars not like mt4

platform aside, spread and slippage play a part too
