Same problem here, and it's not from lack of data. I have 1 min data from Alpari going back to June 2004. I can't figure out why the modeling quality is so low.

Quoting jdlDislikedLou and GirlFlyer,

I apologize for my dumb question. I am simply trying to recreate this EAs great results as a way to learn the Strategy Tester. I have already read all 250+ messages in this and the earlier thread.

Even after importing the historical data and running EUR/USD on M1 and every tick, I get results far different than those postedin the Word doc.

I know it must be something in my settings, I'm just trying to pinpoint what that is. It sounds from other postings that I'm not the only one who has had trouble with this.

Here is some output from the report testing 1.05 Version A:
