Welcome to the Forum!
When you do a backtest it shows all trades from the starting date.
When you place the EA for trading, it starts from the moment you place it. And during this time on the backtest might be a trade. That is normal and logical.
It will take a few days or weeks for the trades to start matching if you are testing on the same broker and Historical data.
You can diversify the strategies in your portfolio by creating different strategies. For example, you can use different SL and TP range.
In other words, when you set the EA Studio differently, it will generate different strategies.
