I know that, but that test although not made with 90% quality modelling was made using the every tick (most precise) so that gives a first quick sight.
Anyway I made the backtest again to try to achieve the 90% modelling and downloaded accurate data from this site that is free (it covers data to 8 years before - till 2001):
Forex Tester Software - Data Sources
I attach here the tests made only on USD/JPY H1 in the following periods using 90% mod. quality :
-last 4 months
-till 01/01/2001 up 06/01/2009
The test that covers 8.5 years was not good.
If you compare the test of the same period (4 month) with 53% and 90% mod. quality there´s not much difference (although there´s a difference in 16 days between the 2 tests).
The previous test was made till 06/19 (53% mod) and the new one till 06/02 (90% mod.).
I will post the test of 8.5 years in the next post compressed because not fit.
anyone tried in real this expert advisor?

Sir, I wish to learn optimization and backtesting EA, but seems that i still haven't get understood although reading the sticky thread that relevant.
Anyway, I wish to keep learning and help to test EA, to find out better EA for myself (and also for the objective of this board)
Hope Sir don't mind to explain some silly question 。。。

The check of the parameters depends on the rapidity of the backesting.
Faster is the backtesting, bigger will be the number of boxes that you can check.
Concerning the start, step and stop, you have first to use a high range with a large step, then you select a smaller step arround the value if this one seems good.
In fact the Drawdown% is the relative drawdown. To know what is a good parameter value, you have to divide the "profit" by the "drawdown%", bigger is the result, better is the potential of the settings.
The inputs on the right are the extern inputs of the EA available for the optimization. The first is the one that you are optimizing.
Do a test, you will quickly assimilate how it works.
Hi I have a question how I can set time time frame? For exapmle 4h, I dont see such posibility on settings of expert adviser, so what just simple keep my chart open on time frame i disire?
more question: SL TP BE TS ? are set up for zero what are the best parametrs to put , and how to set up time frame? Genaraly qestion how to set up the EA ?
i think that the first condition rules only will work better:
"When the yellow MA is over the red MA, we go long, then we exit when the yellow MA is under the orange MA.
When the yellow MA is under the red MA, we go short, then we exit when the yellow MA is over the orange MA."
can you upload the first condition robot please?
