Again ask yourself why is algo performing like this

A lot of good posts came so far and the quote above is the most important question. According to the recent answers from topic opener he's on the right way and it seems he just seeks for some opinions from other people.

The point is: If the question why the algo performs great can be answered with the followed defined workflow than things turn out to be great for the system. If it's not clear to see which points the system claims from the market than one has to be extremely careful.

Either way at this stage I'd immediately go live for testing purposes and as said before in MC you can do this even in live-account (correctly configured the trades won't be transmitted to the broker). Doing this in the last months I came upon some problems in MC where trade entry points are not as correct as they should be even though I was using second data for tests on a 15 minute time frame. Thatswhy I asked whether he could show us some screenshots with entry / exit points. This way he doesn't necessarily unveil the strategy and it could help in a great way to have a better approuch to answer the question of this thread.
