Topic: EA Studio VIX strategies dont work in mt4. Pls help

Hi everyone. New newbie here.
I feel lucky to have discovered such good strategy generation software.
I have been testing out EA STudio trial for the last couple of days.
I must say that it is very impressive.
I especially like the fact that multiple generation processes can be happening in different windows at the same time. Great job.

However, even though I have been able to generate very good strategies, none of them work when tested in mt4 strategy tester.
I mostly trade the VIX in Moneta and Pepperstone and I have generated really profitable strategies but they are not usable in real accounts because they fail in backtesting.
I believe I may be doing something wrong but I do not know what.

I've attached my data symbol details. WOuld really appreciate.
Also, if anyone could volunteer to test creating strategies for the VIX index that work in mt4 , I would really appreciate

Non-Forex symbols can be tricky in MT4. If you run the backtest in MT4, there will be a Journal window which lists all errors that occur. That's what you should post here.

Hello SangaTrader,

As GeekTrader says, it is a good idea to post MT screenshots.

The actual expert will also help.

When you compare EA Studio and MT Tester results, please be sure the historical data and the settings are the same.
Please note that the Commission cannot be seen in the Symbol setting sometimes. You have to heck if your broker applies a commission and to set it manually on EA Studio's Symbol Settings page.

Hi geektrader and Popov,

Thanks for your feedback.
I have attached 3 experts that give very good results in EA studio, but when I test in moneta mt4 are not profitable.

I also see that there are no errors in the Journal tab of mt4 and I see that in mt4 the trades just incur more losses than shown in EA studio

I'm really dumbfounded at this point. Any help would be appreciated as I am still testing to see if EA studio generated strategies work well.

Thanks for your help
