I ran optimizing on Finfx ecn acct mt4. Result is sl=40 & tp=300 and bar#=68 as result of looking for below 13% dd. 2000 bars = 4 mo 1hr gbpjpy.
Performance is $2000 profit on $2200 with 11% dd for 9 winning trades and 20 losers.
Anotherwords for every two 40 pip loser there is a 300 pip winner, not bad so I'm risking using on my real$ ecn acct. One section of test result has 5 losers in a row as worst case, even then the winner afterwards is ahead of the bad streak by 100 pips.
Tester is set to "open bar only" type testing. Often this misses tick performance that occurs in real life but in examining closely the results tab and where SL's got hit on playback chart bars its comforting seeing all ohlc of bars are taken into account by tester and it figures out each trade as if hitting sl's or tp's.
So wish me luck folks on real ecn acct.
