Not surprisingly, the system gained tons of pips from EUR/USD last week. Here are results for both EUR/USD an GBP/USD last week.

EUR/USD ranged tightly for most of the week, probably due to anticipation of the ECB’s monetary policy decision. And boy did Mario Draghi sure deliver! With the ECB launching a more-generous-than-expected (60 billion EUR vs. 50 billion EUR expected) monthly QE program, forex traders were in a hurry to sell the common currency. Signal #12 caught the move perfectly, as it hit the system’s 200-pip profit target. Woohoo!

Like in EUR/USD, GBP/USD’s price action was also choppy for most of the week. Unlike the former currency pair though, the system caught the big move a bit too late. Signal #10 was invalidated, which is probably why the system ended the week down by 34 pips on Cable.

|5||Buy||1.5168||1.5168||0||RSI was already above 50|

I’m not expecting any big moves from EUR/USD or GBP/USD this week, but I’m crossing my fingers for more valid (and profitable!) signals this time.
