Thanks for the detailed response, much appreciated.
I love the concept of testing many EAs on demo and picking the best for the live account. However, a concern of mine is that what works during the test phase is outdated by the time you implement them on the real account. If I remember correctly, in the course you waited a week to get test results and rank the EAs. Do you recommend checking at more frequent intervals after that first test run? Say every 2 or 3 days or is that overthinking it and not worth the stress/effort?
I know I’ve only been testing for 3 days and I know loss is always part of trading but with 50 EAs running I thought the risk would be quite diversified and was a little surprised to see my results so far. The EAs are getting killed right: https://www.fxblue.com/users/btc50-66087799
They seem to perform better when trading with the trend so that might be worth adding to the strategy? The results are particularly bad after a bit of a reversal (22nd June 3pm BTC price hit a low and then bounced back) and without the SL/TP, the negative profits on open orders are getting relatively large now. As you say, they stay open until the indicators tell them to close, so it’ll be interesting to see how that plays out.
Love to hear your thoughts and as always really appreciate the feedback.
