Topic: Backtest results

Hi All,
I have imported historical data as per below link, when backtesting EA's created by Forex Builder Professional i am not getting satisfactory results and most EA's do not even trigger any trades !

I am also using tick data suite for more precise backtesting but do not get good backtesting results..

PLEASE HELP

Re: Backtest results

Hello David,

Please set a simple strategy manually or load some of the demo strategies in order to test your settings.

There are many reasons for the problem. Here are the most frequent ones:
- too high entry lots for the account
- too restricted Acceptance Criteria
- low number of data bars and inability to find strategies with enough deals
- restrictive preset of protections, adding rules or indicators.

Please post a screenshot of the program, if you still cannot manage to generate strategies.
