Topic: Comparing Two Strategies -- Statistics vs Multi-Market

Suppose you are comparing two strategies -- Strategy #1 has great statistics, but fails the Multi-Market test.  Strategy #2 has mediocre statistics, but passes the Multi-Market test.

If you had to choose between the two strategies, which one would you add to your Live Account and why?

Personally #1 given those choices.  If a strat works well multimarket that's great and shows flexibility but I don't view it as a requirement.

Say for example you've got a strat that works well with a sl on eurusd of 20 pips, but then you try to run it against gbpnzd with it's wider spread.  Obviously it's not going to work very well in the later case but that doesn't mean that the former isn't valid.

Not sure why you'd ever choose #2 as there's not much point in going with a strat that is starting off from a mediocre standpoint.
