I’m confused because I have started all the bots in demo mode but didn’t get the silver signal yesterday. Today in backtest mode everything is as expected a long signal at 1630. That is the first time using demo mode and I thought that demo mode works like real trading with trade trigger in real time and not 1 candle delayed :-(.
Can someone please enlighten me.

normally demo works the same as live.
if you activated/started the system in demo it opens the position at the same time as it would in live mode. and you would get your email (if activated).01/06/2017 at 8:19 AM #19995
Hi Reiner. I have now the possibility to test with PRT v10.3 . is this also what you backtestet Silver with? When I backtest it I don’t get a entry signal on silver on 5th jan. It also yields different results that PRT V10.2 backtest in general. I use the Silver (500 oz Mini contracts) in demo. So perhaps in general there is some differences as I would expect PRT 10.3 to be more realistic with the tick by tick mode.
I will try and test some more later when I get back home. But this is the initial findings.

I have checked again the scenario. In backtest and life the cross over was successful (signalline 1.598,99 / dailyHigh 1.598,9) and in demo not (signalline 1.599,9 / dailyHigh 1.599,9) because of a few pips behind the comma.
We have to accept that backtest, demo and life data aren’t 100% equal.

is there a specific reason why you use this strategy with etfs and not cfd?
I thought it is because of the spread at night, but I checked yesterday and the spread is allway 2 points. even at 0.00am. (At least for palladium and platin)

Just want to confirm that I don’t have a position in silver on my IG demo. I asume it’s important to make sure that the bot is run on the exact same instrument as Reiner to get the matching signals? I think for me it seems as there are some instruments that are in my live but not in demo.
