To overcome internet connection problems I am using permanent stop loss for each strategy. This must be my final incuranse against every kind of craches. My internet connection is quite stable, minor connection instabilities will not harm the trading. i don't overleverage and I'm using only micro lots for my small account.
If you see the picture then you will notice the profit factor column. I believe that forward testing of the strategy is completed when there are at least 100 total trades and the profit factor is at least 1,5. There are many ways to investigate profit factor, but I use http://www.mt4i.com method.
Trades - 36
gross profit - 91,38
gross loss -26,62
net profit - 64,76
profit factor - 3.43
I understand i must start copies of FST on my own computer and to solve problems whit permanent internet connection and electrical power. Every stop trading can bring me big losses when i trade real.
What do you mean "100 trades with profit factor 1,5." - How did you calculate profit factor?
For minimum 100 trades I calculate it: Wining trades/all trades > 60% when all trades are whit SL = TP. Then i am sure that I don't trade by chance.
