2013 HLHB Trend-Catcher System Results

Read all about my HLHB Trend Catcher System if this is your first time hearing about it!

As promised, I have compiled the HLHB Trend-Catcher System’s trade results for 2013. I broke it down per month and summarized the results in PIPS so we can see it better. Without further ado, let’s check out how awesome 2013 was for the system!

EUR/USD GBP/USD
January 1 9
February 103 -68
March 63 196
April -33 77
May 103 27
June 51 257
July 43 7
August -34 318
September 96 47
October 69 289
November 188 74
December 34 114
TOTAL PIPS 684 1,347

The system did great with EUR/USD at an average of 57 pips for month. The system was more profitable in the first half of the year when we saw a strong downtrend from late January to early April (check out Forex Gump’s EUR/USD summary). May was also a good month since that was when the pair cancelled out half of Q1 2013′s moves in a few weeks. EUR/USD trended higher for the rest of the year but we saw a lot of fakeouts that could have limited the HLHB System’s gains.

The system did REALLY WELL with GBP/USD at an average of 112 pips per month. Is that awesome or what?! The pair was strongest around the later part of the year, which isn’t surprising considering that that’s when Cable’s uptrend was as steady as a rock. Again, I recommend checking out Forex Gump’s GBP/USD summary if you want to check it out too.

What a strong year for trends and the Trend Catcher System! I think I’ll continue using the current parameters to see if I can get another strong year for this mechanical setup. How about you? Do you have systems that you’re testing or that you know about that also yielded favorable results? Don’t hesitate to share!

XOXO,

Huck

      Yeah I was also surprised! Are you a mechanical trader as well? :)

  • Janka

    I like it :)

    • Hucklekiwi Pip

      LOL yeah I also didn’t know just how profitable it was until I compiled the results. Do you have any mechanical system that you’re trying out? :)

    I must admit when it comes to trading companies not bad.
    I have had an account with a platform for 6 weeks with out placing a bet, I have even thought about trading with some body and I tell you what there are enough of them around, I think it is a lack of confidence, this system seems pretty good.

    Hello :) Nice :)
    Do you play it on the real (or demo ) account or is this a paper trading?

    • Hucklekiwi Pip

      Heya, Jacko!

      I’m forward testing this on a demo account. Now I’m thinking if I should just use this on a live one. :)

      • http://www.przebieramwybieram.pl Jacko

        With such amazing results I am thinking about it too. But I will start on demo first.

  • terry shead

    Thanks for all your reply’s, I have come to the conclusion that I am the only one who can sort it out.

    Gotta question: do you wait for the candle to close, before entering the trade, or do you enter as soon as criteria are met?

    • Hucklekiwi Pip

      Hi!

      I use the candle close as my entry levels :)

    I am trying to play around with this system head over to my post and tell me if I am missing something.
