The Report page shows more detailed information of the backtest of the currently loaded Expert in the Editor.
The page consists of four tabs: Stats info, Indicator char, Balance chart, Transactions log
Shows information for the historical data loaded in the application and used for backtesting the current strategy.
Output parameter panel shows the values of all statistical parameters calculated by the backtesting engine of EA Studio.
The Indicator chart shows the price bars, the indicators and the signals and the positions.
Trailing Stop Loss will show on the Indicator Chart whenever it is defined in the Strategy Properties.
The chart shows the balance line and the equity lines produced by the backtest.
The Transaction Log shows all trades made by the strategy during the backtest. It is useful to examine the exact entry/exit time and prices and to compare them with a backtest of an exported Expert Advisor in MetaTrader. The EA Studio backtest and the MetaTrader backtest must show very similar results. The main reason for differences might be that either the testing historical data is different from the one the MetaTrader uses or the historical data has a different Time zone. In both cases, you cannot rely on that strategy for real trading.
Additionally please note that if a strategy is over-optimized, even the smallest difference in the data or in the trading conditions will create very different results.
