    Default Cannot Duplicate Your Results

    Hi,

    Alpari UK backtest with your set file. 10K to start. Account blows with complete equity loss unless I reduce the risk to 1 then I get these results.

    Any ideas how your results can differ to wildly from mine?

    Thanks,
    Rick

    Hi rsmereka,

    I am using dukascopy tick data. The modeling quality is 99%.

    MT4 is no more updating the history data, there is now too many holes to continue backtesting with their data.

    Funyoo:

    I Also use Dukas Copy Tickdata but for me bactesting doesn't work at all.

    If i use your set file i get a error 134 message. No money left error (even if i set the balance to 100k). So i decrease the risk to 1% and the error dissapears but no backtest curve appears.

    However when runing the backtest on Control Point i get a backtest curve. A bad one... but at least a curve.

    When i had a simillar problem with MACD Fractals it was because of the "Entry on tick" feature... but i can't find any such parameters in this EA.

    Funyoo; Please advice.
    Regards / JoLi

    Funyoo use tickdata which gives him 99% modell quallity. You most probably use 90% quallity.... which in fact is pure bullshit and you can never trust the result. However it seems to be something wrong with the EA anyway since i can't backtest with 99% tickdata.

    Hi, I am a newbie and i am trying to understand and learn.

    Is there any option to turn off trades per bar. I want to open only one long position per signal or one short position per signal. Can you please shed some light on this?

    I greatly appreciate your help.

    Yes with Funyoo's setfile at a startbalance of 10.000 $ the startlotsize is 14.90 lots.
    This is way too much risk for only a 10.000 dollar startbalance, unless you have a big leverage and want to take the risk, but i have a leverage of only 1:100
    My first test trade immediately blow the account because at the first trade the price went against me, now i set stepmm=false.
    Attached my test report.

    I'm not able to reproduce these results either, with DC tickdata. I've been running 20090101 -> 20100930. The whole of 2009 is crap, 2010 is better but with big drawdowns. Running a optimization run now.

    Hi mvbbgrao,

    You can set maxtrades to 1 and tradesperbar to 100.

    Hi CycleTrader,

    14.90 lots with my broker is equal to 1.49 real lots.
