HLHB System Update (March 16-20, 2015)

A pretty good forex trading week for the HLHB Trend-Catcher System, as it gained pips from both EUR/USD and GBP/USD. Woohoo!

EUR/USD was in a choppy mood all week so I would not have been surprised if the system had lost pips on EUR/USD. Luckily, signal #7 caught the pair’s FOMC statement spike. In fact, the signal hit its profit target and yielded 200 pips. Woot! The gains were enough to offset EUR/USD’s fakeouts, enough to end the week with a net of 193 pips. Yay!

Much like in EUR/USD, GBP/USD also popped up a lot of fakeouts. Also like in GBP/USD, the system was able to catch the spike from the Fed’s statement. It even caught a cool move near the end of the week, which is probably why the system caught a net total of 446 from Cable. Virtual high five to the pip gods!

    Hey Huck,

    You’ve probably been asked this before.. but do you check your charts every couple of hours to check for any crossovers or do you have some sort of alert telling you to tune in and check for excitement?

    It seems I only pull the charts up just after I’ve missed a good signal and there isn’t another one in sight for hours.

    Much appreciated, and keep up the good work 😉
