I’ve created an algo which has a great backtest and am testing it in a live environment now. However, I’ve noticed that it doesn’t open the trades the same on different brokers.. and not only that, even with the same broker and different accounts I get different results. Sometimes on one account I will get a buy trade yet on another account, it’ll open a sell. I have no idea why this is happening.. appreciate there are slight price differences between brokers but this is really confusing me. Can someone advise? I think I read somewhere that certain indicators aren’t that accurate.
Please find a copy of the algo in question.
Can anyone advise why this is happening? I’m not clear which one is accurately opening the trades.

you know what, 1 pip difference could lead to a different trade – on 1 account you could have profit, on another it could be a loss
on 1 account you will have opened trade, on another not
and you are still testing with some precision and on dukascopy data, but you are not trading dukascopy data, every broker could have different datafeeds
not a big problem with currencies with inside daily bars, but daily OHLC could be different more, because of the end of the day, where widening of spread happening, etc. etc.
i have runned 2 same portfolios on the same broker…and even in this test i have different EQ curves – what matter is not 1 trade, but long term EQ curve
