I’ve rounded up FOUR mechanical forex strategies right here to see how they performed recently. Take a look!

I’ve got a neat systems snapshot table for their latest performance down below, but keep in mind that the time periods and some trading assumptions vary among my fellow FX-men.

HLHB Trend-Catcher System

The Huck Loves Her Bucks mechanical system uses a simple EMA cross method, combined with the RSI and ADX indicators, to catch short-term trends on the 1-hour charts of EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/JPY.

In this week’s update, Huck is happy to be back in black after seeing back-to-back losses. Check out how three trades led to an 85-pip win (+0.28%) for her trend-catcher! Read more.

SMA Crossover Pullback

Robopip’s newbie-friendly SMA Crossover Pullback trading system is as simple as its name suggests. This strategy features an SMA crossover method to gauge the trend and a stochastic pullback entry signal on the 1-hour charts of EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and EUR/JPY.

It was a bit of a slow week for this mechanical trading system as only one position was closed while the rest remained open. EUR/JPY already has its trailing stop locking in pips, but the system still wound up with a 17-pip or 0.11% dent for the week. Read more.

Short-Term Bollinger Reversion Strategy 2.0

This Short-Term Bollinger Reversion Strategy 2.0 is one of Robopip’s newest creations and is currently being tested on range-bound pairs like CAD/CHF and USD/CAD.

The system only had a handful of signals for the week, but one hit its full stop loss to bring the system down by 50.5 pips or 1.01% for the week. Read more.

Inside Bar Momentum Strategy 2.0

Another tried-and-tested system is Robopip’s Inside Bar Momentum Strategy 2.0 which monitors purely candlestick price action, free of any technical indicators, on the 4-hour charts of GBP/JPY and USD/JPY.

Both pairs caught four valid signals per pair, with a pretty even split of wins and losses. By the end of the week, the strategy logged in a total of 30 pips. Read more.
