Comment on EA's for auto buy/sell signals - Pi

Hi Nithin,
I am in love with Zerodha. I have traded with 2 other brokers earlier, but Zerodha is miles ahead of them…. in technology and also in service….I love the positive and helping attitude of ur team.
I have a doubt regarding the accuracy of back testing results. I back tested a very simple EMA crossover strategy on NIFTY Futures for 60 days and CNX NIFTY for 120 days period. I tried with different candle stick period (10, 15, 20 min). I was surprised to see a profit of (after charges) Rs.12,000 for one lot . That was for 60 days. For 120 days on CNX NIFTY, I got a profit of (after charges) Rs.23,000. Ofcourse, there were differences for different candle stick periods…. but on an average, this was the result. Even if we take a 10% error/deviation, the profits are too good to be true.
