Just a quick glance over the CSV file you have.
You seem to be going for around the 5-pip TP, (occasionally larger 13-20 pip TPs), but you seem to have a 200 pip SL.
The Equity curve looks nice going up, but maybe more instructive to show ongoing balance to show the unrealised drawdown.
Only a small sample size, obviously, but looks good.
I am guessing trading multiple pairs helps the smoothness of the balance, but the 200-pip SL, a bit eye-watery.
Although, I have to say, the trades tended to go into profit immediately, so an edge is apparent, based on the small sample.

There are 10 pips TP and 500 pips TP options. There is also a signal-generated exit which tends to ensure the strategy rarely exits at the SL.

My advice to all is to read the EA description and to put it on a test account. There is no gimmick or scam here. There is just a glut of great strategies that are going to waste so they have been made available for free.

my opinion is not a guide to action:
i dont think Tester of MT4 or even multipair MT5 can be used to create Set file for real trading...
Best to code EA that doing itself optimisation with neural network without using Strategy Tester at all

Metaquotes created slow tester but forgot to create instructions :
1) how to use tester
2) and why do we have to believe in tester results
3) they cannot even create MACOS compatible native app of their most populat plaforms called Metatrader

It is easy to develop such back-test results, one would have to look at the strategy itself and compare with the charts, does the entry points look random. Question is always, will it work if traded live. - or rather for how long will it work ... In general not sufficient info to tell anything.

But 2 trades daily looks good, match the two daily moves. Backtest data corresponding to 2 months testing using 1M bars is okay, but I can tell you that when overlaying such with 6 time periods back, you usually get a very different result. But using 1H bars this would not be operational, as you would be too far back in history, as market behaviour has changed dramatically even the past years. The further back we test the less relevant is the result. The cons is you are not trading a fixed amount, but adding to the trade size in a martingale style scheme. If a broker see this kind of trading style, you will gracefully be kicked out, your account closed.
