Don't test with real money.
You need to test with historic data you haven't used yet, without changing anything else.
Then, if that works, you need to test it in SIM in real time for 3-6months.
All that before going with live money.

It looks a bit too good to be true .
I'll also run it for 6 months with a live data feed and a demo account, and would backtest the same strategy with a correlated instrument.
