strategy tester EA with DEMO and REAL account shows different result?
i've done several strategy tester from the same period and time. 1st i log in Real account and backtest, it shows Stop Out to my account. But when i log in Demo account and do the strategy tester again, it shows profit all the way!? how can i know my EA was good or not?

Sometimes the strat tester stops out on the last trade. it is a bit flawed and only gives you a general idea how it will work. You should test the EA realtime on a demo or live (micro obviously) account to really see how it will go.

Make sure you have the same set of data before you run backtesting .. normally real account have more complete price feed data than demo account because people normally leave the terminal open and have all data downloaded while demo account price feed data not that complete because people only login for certain period. (all depend on how long the terminals had already running and downloaded the price data)
