China’s weak equities markets was right smack in the middle of the headlines during this week, which also weighed on risk appetite. We only saw 5 signals from EUR/USD with 3 of them invalidated by the RSI filter. Unfortunately, we ended the week with a 21-pip dent on the system’s pockets. Boo!

GBP/USD took a long visit to Fakeoutsville, as we saw tons of fakeouts from the system. Though GBP/USD moved in one direction for most of the week, the 100 and 200 SMA were also busy with their fakeout dance. With 8/14 losses and 5/14 invalidated signals, the system lost a 161-pip chunk from its coffers. Yikes!
