Topic: Different results btw FSB backtest and MT4 backtest?
Hi there I am using uploaded data from my FXDD demo account to test various strategies on FSB. I created a donchian channel breakout strategy on FSB using my FXDD data which looked very promising and tested well on MonteCarlo. However after turning the strategy into an EA and back testing it over the same period on MT4 I am getting completely different results (much much worse).
If FSB is using the same data why would the results on the MT4 back test not be the same? I can understand a bit of difference due to varying spreads, slippage, etc. but the results are night and day. It is somewhat troubling because it calls into question all of the back test results on FSB for various strategies as I am creating them.
Any feedback would be great.
Thanks in advance.
