Starting from September 2010, all my forward tests are featured on real accounts. It simply doesn’t get any more realistic than this. Most of the accounts are going to be opened with LiteForex, FXOpen or, starting from summer 2011, PrivateFx.

If you would like to compare the performance of the expert advisors on this page, please head to the EA Top where the information is more condensed and you can also see some stats.

History

I am committed to keeping a log of all the changes applied to the forward tests, but it was getting rather big and cluttering this page needlessly so I decided to move it. It is now available at the Forward test change history page.

  • #117 written by Alex March 30, 2013 (3 years ago)

    Hi Birt

    I’ve observed your forward tests and reviews for quite a while. Thanks for the great work. I do notice that your forward tests are often much better than the vendor’s own accounts. I guess this must be that you are getting better spreads and slippage with “Private FX” than what the average Joe out there is able to get. Great for you, but perhaps gives an unrealistic view of what Average Joe should expect from these products. IMHO

  • #118 written by david October 12, 2013 (3 years ago)

    Hi Birt,
