HLHB Trend-Catcher System Update (September 12 – 16, 2016)

A pretty good week for the HLHB System, as gains from EUR/USD and GBP/USD’s trends offset the losses from their fakeouts. Here’s what’s up!

With not a lot going on in the forex markets, EUR/USD was stuck in a tight range for most of the week. Luckily, the HLHB System caught the big move on Friday. If you recall, this was around the time when traders bought the dollar like there was no tomorrow before the FOMC statement was released. The HLHB caught a nice 86 pips from signal #16, which translated to a net gain of 40 pips by the end of the week. Not bad!

Though Cable had fewer signals, it also yielded more pips than EUR/USD. See, the pound also saw relatively tight ranges against the dollar. Signals #4 and #10 were particularly helpful with their 100 and 200-pip contributions. By the end of the week the HLHB gained a net of 258 pips from Cable. Woot! Woot!

Not a bad week for the HLHB, huh? It almost makes up for the heartbreak from Brangelina’s divorce! Okay, maybe not… Let me get back to my ice cream and Mr. and Mrs. Smith rerun and let you know.

For now, it’s a waiting game until the FOMC statement! Got any trade setups you’re watching?
