About Lesson

In the video, the speaker discusses the importance of increasing statistical significance in backtesting trading strategies by testing them across multiple markets simultaneously. They demonstrate this concept using a multi-symbol expert advisor in MetaTrader 5. Initially testing the strategy on EURUSD with only 20 trades over 5 years, they highlight the limitation of a small sample size for optimization. To address this, they switch to testing the strategy across 28 forex pairs simultaneously to achieve a more robust evaluation. This approach allows for a more comprehensive assessment of the strategy’s performance and statistical significance.
