1- Based on your experience, how much difference can you expect in results when trading (with the same set of EA’s) on the “live” and “demo” accounts at the same time?. I am thinking there must be some differences because , among other reasons, orders are filled in demo accounts instantly…. the main question is if there is a difference in result, is it statistically significant?
2- I am just getting my feet wet studying course in the academy and still have a long way to go….. but from what I have noticed Portfolio trading seems to be most consistant way of trading… problem I have is FIFO rule with my broker (OANDA) in the US. What is you recommendation to get the best out of portfolio trading without violating FIFO rules?
1. There could be a significant difference if you trade the smaller time frames as M1 and M5 (if your broker has some execution problems on a live account). That is why I use mostly M15 and H1. The difference in results could come when you move EAs from Demo to Live. You will need to give the EAs some time to synchronize.
2. Have a look at our FAQ section for some FIFO tips. But trading with Portfolio EAs will be the hardest to go around FIFO because the Portfolio EAs work on one asset and one time frame.
Ok following up on portfolio trading, there is this 100 EAs for EUR,USD, AND GBP that i am really interested in…. is it possible to get a version of this portfolio that i can change position size on each individual EAs?
