The backtests below are all based on Mode 1 (lowest risk setting) and are 'flat' in that no compounding is used. This gives a more accurate reflection of real profitability - as if you were withdrawing all profits rather than reinvesting them in order to make even more profit through compounding.
One thing to be wary of with backtests is that some EAs are specifically 'curve-fitted' to make them look good on backtest over a specific timeframe. FourLeafClover is not curve-fitted. Nor are the backtests run without stop losses or artificially high starting balances, which other EAs may do to give the impression of 'perfect' performance, but which hides the fact that floating drawdown can reach extreme levels - levels that you would never seriously accept when trading live.
Some of the charts below look a little 'jagged', but they are honest, and importantly - profitable. Also, the green line representing equity does not plummet to alarming levels. Remember, you have the option not to run all pairs and can pick and choose based on back / forward tests. The starting balance for all tests is $8,000.
At the bottom of the page you will find MyFxBook links to the latest 99.9% quality tick data based backtests (i.e. using the best data available from Dukascopy).
Please also refer to the live Forward Tests of FourLeafClover which will provide you with a clear view of how it is currently trading in the live environment.
