GKFX all sells versus Alpari which is nearly all buys!

Using MT4 Strategy Tester cannot, therefore, be trusted. A slight deviation I expected, but so far apart is utterly ridiculous!

I will start afresh come Monday, using GKFX, as Alpari spreads overnight are too wide for PIPJet to work.

Pity, nice profits!
