At the expense of robots, I also tried a lot of them before on MT4, and it seemed like I was advised to do the optimization in the built-in tester with Dukas quotes and still the result on the real account was very different. It's all to blame for the inferiority of the tester itself in MT4, since its optimization was far from the real state of the market, that's why he switched to the 5th meta trader, his tester was made an order of magnitude better than MT4, it has optimization based on real ticks, it pumps up all the ticks that were automatically from your broker, because of this, it turns out that the entire floating spread that was repeated is repeated, then it is possible to set a fixed or arbitrary delay of the Internet connection because of this, requotes may appear, too, as in the real market, in a nutshell, we can say that the tester in the 5th meta trader, when optimized, maximally repeats the real state and movement of your broker's market for a given period of time, which gives us the most correct robot settings. And for the sake of interest, several Expert Advisors with the same parameters were tested by changing only the testing methods and all the results of all methods differed from the testing method based on real ticks, which repeats the real state of the market. And after the transition to 5, somehow the trust in robots reappeared.

Well, no matter how the main rule for me when using robots that trade completely automatically is to try to transfer profit or part of it to a personal account as often as possible, if your broker gives it, if your broker does not have it, withdraw it or transfer it to another a trading account that is used as a personal account, because no matter how good the advisors are,

they can sooner or later drain the working deposit (and this is normal morally and psychologically, it is transferred if the working deposit was already not from personal funds but from earned profit), because the market's volatility is not constant, and after all, as a minimum, when volatility changes,

it is necessary to change take-profits with stop-losses, put them closer or, on the contrary, move them away, if the grid operator needs to change the step of opening positions, if the robot trawls open positions, then the trailing distance must be changed

accordingly ... Therefore, it is also advisable to do optimization in the tester more often, especially if you can see that the volatility has changed. And since some people hope that any robot can be turned on and forget about adjusting its settings, the same does not happen. There are, of course, robots (one might say whole harvesters) that can adapt to the state of the market,
