Topic: Greatly differing results in FSBPro backtest and live EA trading
Hi everyone, I'm tearing my hair out with this problem (which is bad news as I don't have much hair).
It's possible that I'm making a basic mistake in how FSBPro works, or it could be a bug with FSBPro in which case I'm sure it will be helpful of me making the developers aware.
I'm happy to provide much more detail if needed (let me know what you'd need) - but a basic description of the problem is as follows:
I ran an EA developed from FSBPro over the past week on my live trading account, which resulted in 6 EURUSD trades (1 winner and 5 losers). When I uploaded the latest price data from the broker into FSBPro at the end of the week, FSBPro says the strategy should have produced 5 trades (all winners). Upon closer inspection, the trades also seem to start at different times (between live and FSBPro).
I'm obviously concerned at the difference in how the EA has actually traded in real conditions, and the FSBPro backtest results for the same period.
Just to confirm, I'm using the broker data from MT4 imported into FSBPro, and I am NOT using MT4 for backtesting.
Has anyone else encountered a similar problem? I searched the forum and there seems to be a similar problem that was solved by importing the broker data into FSBPro (which I do anyway).
Thanks for any help or thoughts, AL
