    Hi Mason, if you are concerned about your demo account equity curve, I suggest you look at your backtest curves on a different scale - because the scale is deceptive. Typically, if you have a backtest equity curve of several years data, it is all compressed in the same graph that the demo account equity curve of a few weeks is shown.

    So I suggest you take any one of the backtest curves that look good and plot just the first few weeks or month of data and you will see that it probably looks similar to your demo account curve - it's only because several years of data is compressed into a small graph that you don't see the individual peaks and troughs like you do as you watch it unfold live.

    Cheers, Sharks
