    Hi johno,

    I use Metaquotes data to reach the 90% modelling quality.

    Each time I backtest, on any ea, the last two trades are always large losses. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi snkpool and welcome,

    Maybe because on these EA there is no SL.

    At the end of your test the backtest program closes your open orders, whatever the value might be...., It just closes the book to see what the performance is....

    What's the sens to optimize ea for long time, year or more and use this data for live ?
    Market always change, trend is one up one down. If we use data from oldies chance for catch good results is less than good. i think that better is optimise ex.3/4 month back and every weekend repeat it.
    what are you thinking ?

    Guys, I used to get 90% on every test. Maybe I did to many or something. Now I only see 25%.

    I've re-downloaded the histories, but it does not seem to be the same. The first time I downloaded them it took a while, now it is seconds, like it is not really downloading.

    I also un-installed my FXDD meta, and re-installed -- same, haaaaaaaa, any ideas?
