Have anyone of you had the case when Open prices and Control Points have quite nice growth of equity vs Every tick has huge drawdowns for the same strategy?
What do you do in this situation? Is it reasonable to update the EA to work only on new bars/ once per bar etc?
Strategy works on H1 timeline.

Run a test on a real market feed.

It's good when open prices and control points have a nice growth.

I did run it on live account and order open results look more like open prices backtest rather than every tick.
However-stoploss and trailing while open price testing is checked on the next bar thus changing the close time and improving overall result.

I tried to add stoploss and trailing by order modify on the next bar but no luck. 
Result gets even worse. And in my opinion it is quite risky as well.
