I have been doing back testing on many ea's, along side with forward testing with demo's,
I have found that when using back test, it doesn't recognize hidden TP's and SL's like in Firebird, have since been testing my back test based on what would possibly be used in forward, IE. Firebird True SL is set to 300. however I have found in forward it hit's around a SL of 80.
Optimization seems too work great. super computer recommended however if there is something set that is unreliable in backtesting, could have dreadful results.
does anyone have any other experiences with back testing limitations or suggestions?
