DislikedHey ChubbyWookie, I really like your 2 months backtest, just wondering if you did any backtest from 2017->today? especially interested to see if it will work on XAUUSD. Thanks.Ignored
I have back tested many pairs including Gold and Silver with good results. But i don't think I have gone back to 2017. In general i find the roadmap works in all pairs however each pair does seem to have slightly different behaviors. Like CAD pairs seem to move nice but also have large pull backs that might make you close early. Some pairs may often give you a double bottom or double top and others may just hit once and run. Biggest thing is we all see things differently. One time i developed some rules and had my wife try it. I was 80% she was 40%. Turns out i was using more rules than i thought because we see things differently. So if your struggling please don't hesitate to post questions or trades.
In back testing i have jumped back to far as 2009 and its the same. But that doesn't mean i have done every year from then on. I now primarily stay within the last 4 years of EUR/USD and GBP/USD that way i can compare systems and rules under same market conditions quickly. Then i will usually jump to a random pair with a random year and test it out. Whats interesting is after you look at it enough you think you start to memorize that pair and years price action. But when you jump to a random pair and year you have never looked at. You see its the same thing over and over and over.
