Not for that, wanted to prove for those who don`t believe EA`s can be profitable that there are good EA which are still good and profitable, and anyone can find them if he looks for them deeply and don`t give up easily!
I agree with you too, however those are carefully chosen, and they have about 1 year good forward test too, but I have started those ones just now to test!
And I think using 4-5 good EA`s in one account it`s much better, than only 1 because it`s more safer, and you get smaller DD also they trade more often, so your profits grow faster, also if you see one of them fails to deliver, just replace it with a new one, no big deal!
The problem is to have all of them profitable, if you have 3 winning ones and 2 which eats up the profits, you can`t make to much profit!
Most people just seem to stare at the profit curve, looking for the maximum profit, and hgh percentage of wins. However, something that is much, much more important is the drawdown, This must be kept as low as possible. I prefer to earn 5% per month if the drawdown is not higher than 2%, instead of earning 50% in a month with a drawdown of 75%. The first can be regarded as profitable trading, the latter is simple gambling. For me, any relative drawdown that is higher than 10% is simply unacceptable. I realize, that when trading on a demo account, or on a live account with $1000 or less, then it doesn't matter. But as soon as one start to trade with larger amount of money on a live account, large drawdowns are just not acceptable.
But I don`t think my Ea`s has big DD, as I remember it`s under 1%...<snip>
According to the picture you uploaded from the StrategyTester, the relative DD was about 11%, not 1%. But 11% is ok if your EA can hold that for years. So run some tests from 1 Jan 2008 til now to confirm this. Keeping the DD low is crucial.
According to the forward test I uploaded the DD was 1.35% exactly!
I don`t need to run test as I`m full of them, they don`t tell you
I see You don`t give too much attention to forward test I have attached,
I know it`s not for long term, but I can upload new ones anytime!
You see them as Strategy Tests, which isn`t the same thing!
Don`t worry, I know for what and where too look for!
