Nice backtest. I would have made the pip spread at least 1 (I always use 2 pips), but to each their own.

A couple things:

  1. I never saw a backtest on these forums boards I didn’t like :wink:
  2. Over $100k profit a year on a $50k account. Bold targets. Bold leverage. Seems like he is sticking to his SL’s so far.
  3. With a scalping system like this, I wouldn’t touch it until it has a REAL money track record. Alot of these trades are a minute or less. As I’ve said before, scalping on C2 is notoriously difficult.

Good luck.

Hi,

Many thanks for your kindly reply.

  1. The system has fixed 20 pips stop loss. It could also detect the trend on a very short term period, once potential short term trend reversal is flagged, it will exit the trade no matter win or loss.

  2. Although the name of the system is “scalper”, it is indeed a “short term trend follower”, when use reversed trading, the profit will drop in a line. I’ll also post the reverse logic backtest report later.

  3. When copy it in real account, I think some slippage is inevitable. Generally speaking, the order sent from broker server to LP (Liquidity Provider) server may need some time, during this progress, we’ll see some slippage. However, as the market is keep moving, we may have negative or positive slippage.

From a long term view, as long as the broker is “honest”, the possibility of negative and positive slippage should be balanced each other.

Welcome to further discussion…:slight_smile:

Thanks,
Have a nice day!

What’s the backtest say with the spread at 2.0 ? Not 0.4. How about with slippage?

Love me some backtests. What could go wrong.

Hi,
Many thanks for your kindly reply.

①In Tickdata Suite, the spread=4, means 0.4 pip.
This is almost the same with my master account.
(spread of eurusd 0.4 pip, spread of usdjpy 0.3 pip)

②About the slippage, in backtest, I did not use slippage option.
However, we could use expected payoff as a reference.
For example, the Expectancy of “EURUSD Version 1” is 2.2 pips.
That means as long as the slippage < 2.2 pips, theoretically the strategy should work.
Please see the chart below.

③Again about the slippage, just as we discussed before, I think in any tradycopy platform, the slippage should be inevitable due to the signal transferred from server to server.
However, from a long term view, the chance of “negative slippage” and “positive slippage” should be balanced themself.

④About the spread: I already create another strategy which could work on higher spread accounts. (We assume the spread of eurusd and usdjpy is 1.5 pips).
I’ll post the backtest results later today or tomorrow.

Thanks,
