A pretty mixed week for the HLHB Trend-Catcher System, as it got hit with tons of forex fakeouts on EUR/USD and GBP/USD. Yipes!
Read all about my HLHB Trend Catcher System if this is your first time hearing about it!
Fakeout galore! With no major data on tap and traders unwilling to take positions while Greek and Eurogroup officials are hashing out Greece’s debt deal, EUR/USD was in a tight range for most of the week. Though the system had 13 signals on the pair, only 4 of them were valid and half of them even turned out to be losses. Boo!

Much like EUR/USD, Cable also had a ranging week. Mixed reports from the U.K. and the U.S. didn’t help, of course. The only difference is that the HLHB Trend-Catcher System somehow managed to gain a net of 2 pips by the end of the week. Not bad, I guess.
