Hey Alan, that all seems sensible enough, it sounds like you are running the normalizer one the validator? I would remove that personally as it’s already been run in the reactor. Monte Carlo a second time is fine
Also in the validator I would remove the OOS = 20% as it should be in sample.
Further to this I would suggest using an mt4 demo account to validate that your selection of EAs using EA studio matches your selection using FXBlue to make sure you have things set up properly.
