Backtesting a Forex EA on MT4 - Tips from Developers

Backtesting a Forex EA on MT4 - Tips from Developers submitted by iforexrobot to u/iforexrobot [link] [comments]

What's the difference...

Ok folks. One of my first few posts here.
I am a guy who just started backtesting and using expert advisors to trade forex on MT4.
Does that count as algo trading, or does tt make me a 'quant'?
I'm sure the field of algo trading a lot wider than some guy working w retail level EAs. I was hoping if anyone could spell it out a little better for me what the difference between pros and guys like me are, so I can better grasp where to go from here.
Thanks everyone!

On the development and confidence on your trading systems.

While I've never traded live before and still consider myself a total newbie, I've read plenty of books related to trading and forex in particular and have been demo trading for almost 6 monts both with mt4 and cTrader (and made a couple EAs and algos, since I have a CS background). I've blown more demo accounts than I can remember...
From what I read (and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) there are only two things you need in order to make it in forex: solid money management and a trading strategy with an edge.
The only thing I couldn't find yet on any book is: How do you develop such a trading strategy?
I don't want to know the secret sauce (when to go long or short), just the reasoning behind those strategies whether they're profitable or not. Is it just trial and error? Let's try to buy EURUSD when price goes above SMA14 on M15... (Backtests over a period of two years. Blows account.) Well, it didn't work. How about trying with H1?... (Back to backtesting...)
Or is it that eventually you develop some kind of intuition about how markets are behaving and some things might work better that others? And just try those until it works? (Purposely leaving aside the discussion about the amount of backtesting you feel comfortable with before going live. I believe that deserves a thread on it's own)
I'd love to hear from both technical and fundamental traders.
UPDATE: A couple of days after posting this question, I came across a series of articles that describe one possible way to approach the development of a trading system:
Build Better Strategies!
Build Better Strategies! Part 2: Model-Based Systems
Build Better Strategies! Part 3: The Development Process

It's time to make some serious $$$ - Thank you MQL4/5 Community.

It's getting warm here (Melbourne, Australia), I'm on holidays (from my real job) and decided to browse the "premium quality", "all encompassing", "all knowing" MQL4/5 Community.
Since I want to be a lazy Forex trader, I thought to myself "Let's see what's on offer in the EA section for MT4.
This, my friends, is our ticket to freedom.... Introducing the AlgoTradeSoft Innovative EA ( For a measly, $1,250 USD, we can together make some serious $$$.
The EA uses an "adaptive trade management algorithm" and has been "backtested and optimized using real ticks with 99,9% quality".
At the time of creating this thread, a lucky 5 people have made the plunge. Will you???
You're welcome :)
EDIT: I'm being sarcastic... I am not being serious in anyway!!!! EDIT 2: I was trying to highlight how riddled with SPAM and scammers the MQL community is
