FT3 - Bug in test results

#1 Postby Steven_FX » Thu Sep 29, 2016 7:46 am

I have some strategies that were profitable when tested in FT2, but when I installed the same strategy dll in FT3 and test on the same Currency Pair and date ranges, the results were unprofitable. So I used a simple MA test on FT3 , e.g. buy when 5 period MA crosses 10 period MA from below, the results were highly unprofitable. Normally, when I reversed the parameters (e.g. SELL instead of by when MA crosses 10 period from below), I would get profits, but in FT3, I got the same highly unprofitable results. In fact , both tests results in losses of 730 pips . This lead me to conclude that there seems to be either a bug or a buy/sell bias in FT3.

I am using the demo account on FT3.

i believe that's a common mistake to try reverse buy with sell (or vice versa) and expect the loss to turn to profit. a loser system is usually still a loser if you reverse its buy/sell.
