    If broker GMT offset on Backtesting Platform is +2 what should the setting be for start and finish times.

    Cheers..

    So this would be 22 and 9 for IBFX users, as IBFX is GMT + 0...right?

    Hi beginnertrade and welcome,

    You put the mq4 file in the experts folder. Then you start Metatrader, you open a chart and your drag the expert to this chart. Here you can load settings (set file) in Inputs, before to apply the code.

    I would suggest you just backtest the different time settings. i am +2 gmt to fxopen but ended with starttime 2 and stoptime 21.

    If I told you the truth...well you would laugh and wonder why I am here at this website...

    I do not know how to backtest...I am a forward tester. Backtests are only good to test a code for a coder to make sure there are not any errors....but I am posting in a Forum filled with backtesters and will be stoned. So nevermind..

    well, i dont laugh, i think you have a good point. its just a help for me to find the optimal settings.

    i am currently running this ea live, without money management because my account is too small for now. it gives me good results at fxopen. (made today $0.80 with 0.1 lots).

    here is my setfile and backtest:
    Relative Drawdown 20.29% !!

    I'm running this on a demo with a 5-digit broker. Do I need to change any of the settings?

    Thanks

    I've checked the charts of last week to try to understand the rules of the EA.
    I've attached 2 pics and the statement ( same settings in the PSAR charts and EA ).
    Slow PSAR green-red and fast PSAR blue-magenta.
    We can see several curious things about the orders .
    In 1, there is a good signal BUY but the EA opens a buy limit and delete it then ?????
    Result: a good trade missed.
    We can see also a curious buy limit after.
    In pic 2, why this order 4 SELL and this order 7 SELL ?
    These orders are too late because the PSAR plots were in agrement for a long time !!!!
    So I don't know it's the limit orders are a good idea for this EA.
    Maybe we could try a modified version without limit orders.
    I don't know if it's possible.
    Any comments ?
