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 chart, Balance chart, Transactions log
When you load an Expert Advisor in the Editor section, the best way to get a deeper insight into its backtest statistics is by going to the Report page.
Here, you will find four main tabs: Stats info, Indicator char, Balance chart, and Journal.
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 Journal panel displays all of the trades that are part of the strategy's backtest. You can see the exact time and price of when the trades were opened or closed.
Then you can compare the information with a backtest of the same Expert Advisor, but this time in MetaTrader. The backtest results between the EA Studio and the Meta Trader platform should be almost equal.
If the two backtests do not match, this can be due to using different historical data, or not using the same time zone for this data. If this is the reason, then you should not use the Expert Advisor in a real account, but perform a proper backtesting.
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.
