I open this thread to discuss about curve fitting. I see a lot of ea's that perform good (in backtests - after optimizations). My question is: Is that of any use?
I can proof that whatever EA you give me i can send you back a set of settings for that EA to make it profitable. (of course the ea has to put trades and not close them instantly or other "made to loose" setups).
Second question would be: If i have for a given period of time an EA that performs extremly well -> low drawdown/high profit/big number of trades. How can i calculate the probability to trade the same in the next period of time and how long would that next period of time be?
Thanks and hope you will like this discussion or point me to a place where this has been disscussed already.
