I may be doing something wrong but I have done many tests where I have "always" observed the lesser performance on the FT. I realize that is not completely scientific but I have never seen otherwise.
I have attached files from one of my many tests. This is a daily 1000 bar BT and FT with no optimization and the relative results of BT and FT are typical of what I get. This is what prompts me to ask what is happening in a FT that is followed by a BT with no optimization. Thanks for any light you can shed.
