I have tick scalper EA which gives exellent result on strategy tester but on live accounts it gives negative result. Also the number of trades is significantly more on the live account and much less on the tester. Usually more than 2-3 times. I'm not the developer of the EA so I can't give you code information. The EA run on the Bronze VPS package of Beeksfx and is cross connected to IC Markets NY data centre. Latency time is 0.5-1.0 ms and VPS runs Windows Server 2012.
As I observe the things I have the feeling that not all ticks are stored in the history file or their execution time is not recorded precisely so the EA have confused behaviour. Maybe the strategy of the EA is not sutable for live ticks, but is there a difference and what it is between the live tick and the tick from the tester? I know from the EA developer that the EA is designed and optimised on the tester and not on real live ticks. My general question is, are all the ticks and their precise time stored in the history file? I don't know whether the Metaquotes can be asked with this question since I can't find their contact. If somebody can answer will be good. I don't have any more ideas how to improve the situation.
