Hi there, I’m new to EA Studio, but some how I cannot log in forum, the only way I can post is reply to a post here.
Anyway, I’ve notice there are difference between backtest and live orders.
For example, I set up an account in Aug 31, there is a SELL order, which resulted in loss.
However in backtest, there was still a BUY order during this period, and resulted in win.
Is it normal, I mean if I let the EA run for a while, can it match up with the backtest result? Or is there a way to make sure live account can have same orders with backtest?
And one more thing, can you guys help me with my EA generating strategy:
Pairs: EURUSD, GBPUSD, EURGBP
Min orders: 300
Profit factor: 1.2
Profit factor in and out of sample: 1.1
My plan is to generate as many strategies as I can, then use top 33EAs for each pairs, then replace them using FXBlue when profit factor after 5 trades is below 1.2
However, there are lots of ups and downs, for example, they can win a lot in row, or lose a lot. And GBPUSD EAs seem to open orders in the same direction quite often.
Is there a way to make my EAs more diversified, I mean there’s no point using a lot of EAs for one pair then they open the same direction?
