The thing is sometimes things aren't as they seem...
Let me explain.
You see a back-test result showing an account going from £500 to £500k in 3 years, wow right?
You buy it, it pops your account.
2 main reasons for this, one the vendor hasn't given you the explanation and guidance on HOW you can manage and set your own risk, agreed?
They just gave you the good news I bet?
The thing is, 'Perfection' doesn't exist, sorry.
Broker feeds are all different for testing, the past results aren't guaranteed to replicate into the future - all that stuff.
However, testing is all we have and yes it is important.
BUT, take that £500 to £500k example above - what is the drawdown at one point was above £500 without stop loss or drawdown management?
You would've blown your account if you'd have started at a different moment in time.
We don't test like this. We factor this in to ensure these sorts of things aren't misleading.
And we give you the 'balanced' view of our trading tools.
They're tools to help you, but they need understanding and managing in line with your risk appetite.
Else you can say your account goodbye when you don't set the risk you're happy with or get greedy chasing that new Lambo that everyone on your social media feed seems to have.
