Topic: Lot, Spread and Commission
While testing EAs I noticed that some profitable EAs from a friend did not make any money for me. We use the same broker. I noticed that he uses an account with no commission and a spread and I use one with commission. My spreads are narrower than his and that is the reason why EAs even in FSB failed.
I saw the video by Miroslav in which he inputs the referenced data and then does the testing.
I also noticed that by changing the lot size the EA would fail also. So I generate a strategy with 0.01 lot and it looks good.I then change the lot to 0.1 and the graph goes haywire. It that normal?
I thought that I would post this for newbies like me and would want the senior most experienced traders to comment on this.
Thanks & Regards,
