Do any of your strategies work with mini accounts?

In general, unless otherwise specified, all the indicators, strategies,
work on both Standard or and Mini.

I downloaded this strategy and had it running for 24 hrs in nzd/usd, on friday, I made sure that the lot size was 1, which is the lowest it goes, this is a mini account, and made sure to that it said live trading and it did not execute a single trade, during that time period, with the movement in nzd I find it hard to believe both conditions werent met to execute, is there something else I have to do?

What Time Frame is used.
As confirmation, Add MACD indicator to chart.
Do you have MACD / Signal Cross during testing period.

I put it 5 minute time frame, in backtestring it seemed to be more profitable, and yes I had the macd indicator running, I also clicked yes to dynamic trailing stops

Hm, I made a test and everything is fine for me.
How did you do the testing in Backtester or in live trading.
For Live trading you should have something like this.

Did you have an active strategy, like I have here.
If you are using MACD Strategy with confirmation,
It's entirely possible, we have a very strict filter.
You've tested over the weekend maybe? :)
