    Hello everyone!

    I will change my broker and need to test, as taught by Petko, if there are large differences between the results of the demo accounts and live.

    I performed this test for my former broker and checked compatibility between the two accounts. But I would like to know if you guys have performed this test before starting to operate on the live account. If so, could you tell which brokerages you performed the test as well as the result? I personally performed this test and got a positive result for the broker ATC Brokers. And you?

    Hello Thyago,

    I am currently using Jfd and pepperstone, and at the beginning I saw that the demo was matching with the live? I have not  done the test recently, but it is easy to switch the data feed from one resource to the other.

    All you need to do is to do is to export the data from the live server and the Demo server, and compare them in EA Studio.

    Also, make sure to test it for same periods.

    Such a test is a must! Anyway, Demo trading is useless.
