I dont know if is just me or someone else have noticed this: Every time I find a combination of few indicators that predict the market movements very good it works a couple of times and then after about a week or 2 of using them when my indicators predict something the market starts to move oposite to my opened position no meter what I do. i.e. my indicators combination tell me to buy, if I do so the market will move downwards, if I sell the market will move upwards as the indicators predicted.

I have noticed this, as well.

In my Tester tests, I seem to see this a lot. I attribute it to the fact that when setting up the Strategy, I do most of my tests in time periods that are close to today. For example. If I am testing a 15 minute Strategy, I will test it mostly over the last 7 days. Finally, when I get things working well, I start testing them over a whole month. But, the Strategy is basically built for the previous week.

Forex movement has many patterns. They do not always match the area where I do my testing. It is difficult to build a Strategy that can handle all the possible kinds of Forex movement patterns.

To double check a Strategy, I download the open, high, low, and close for, say, a month. I put the figures into Excel, and see if I can duplicate the Strategy there. It helps me find mistakes in my logic and thinking.
