    Hi

     

    In MT4, the DD on my EA says 45% but in EA Analyser its says 10%

     

    Are they calculating it differently?  Which is right?

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

     

    can you send me the report you are loading into EAA?

    I’ll look at why it is so different.

    Hello,

     

    I checked your report, it is pity you didn’t attach also equity image.

     

    I believe there is a bug in MT4. There is no 45% drawdown on that strategy, you can see it on the equity chart in EAA

     

    The maximum drawdown in money is only around $1300.

     

    I’m not sure how MT4 got to this drawdown level, it looks like from a different report.

    Hello.  Sorry by my english.

     

     

     

    The backtest in metatrader run fine.

     

     

    It´s, possibly, the maxim floating equity in negative before closing the trade/s.

     

     

    Could the maxim floating equity in negative into consideration for be included in the new version 4 ?.

    the problem with maximum open equity is that it is not reported in account history or backtest, so EA Analyzer has no way to recognize it from history of trades.

     

    It can be computed only for strategies that are backtested in StrategyQuant.
