Even negative feedback would be appreciated.

Hi Laura.

Just looked at your numbers, your winning trades make a profit of 1 tick, and losing trades make a loss of 1 tick - is that correct?

Win Rates should always be looked at in combination with average reward to risk ratios. So a win rate of 85% with a rr ratio of 1:1 is fantastic. It's not possibly to judge a win rate or rr ratio in isolation.

Without knowing more details, and assuming you are looking at a 1 tick scalping strategy on the emini, then I would say:

- your testing methodology is likely not detailed enough and does not give accurate reflection of live trading conditions

- your transaction costs are likely to be understated

- your expected profitability is likely to be significantly overstated

Hopefully that helps a little (even though it may be discouraging!).

That said, it is really good that you are investing time in testing to begin with!
