    That's not possible. I prefer to do forward tests personally to know how good is a system, what are the best pairs and timeframes, etc ...

    Hi serdarso,

    There is no interest as we can not verifiy if the broker is reliable or not with such services.

    Default Grid system

    Well,
    now I understand! Actually Donchian or not Donchian, this is basically a sort of grid system, where you do not recognize losses untill they become "unsustainable" and you decide to close the trade. Especially if you play this game with two different brokers (one for the long and the other for the short trades) you might want to have a quite huge balance for avoiding margin calls, I suspect.

    With "Donchian or not Donchian" I mean that the same trick applied to any other "directional system" (e.g. MA crossovers, other momentum indicators...) would produce similarly impressive results, and therefore one should compare tomatoes with tomatoes. It's just a warning for the not-so-experienced.

    Being things so, anyway, I would NOT trust trade statistics so much: it is nice to think about a system with 90% of accuracy, but actually this number only reflects the fact that you do not account for losing (running) trades.

    The only problem that I see with such a systems is that, if by a remote mistake or distraction (or a big market news) you get a margin call on one of the accounts, you're basically broken... Again for the not-so-experienced: take care of the risk you're carrying on with such thing! Look VERY carefully at the unrealized P/L in the statements, and think twice if you can sleep quietly in the night with it.

    Bye
