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 saw a nail-biting finish as one big loss ALMOST wiped out most of her weekly gains. Read on to see how she scraped by with 3 pips (+0.01%) this week! 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.

This strategy had one of its better weeks as it scored a full win on EUR/JPY and opened a couple of fresh positions.

EUR/USD picked up on the bullish crossover from the other week with a new long play while Cable also opened a long position as it pulled up from a prolonged slide.

With that, the system was able to close out with a 300-pip or 2.00% gain for the week. That’s back-to-back weekly gains yo! 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.

This mechanical trading system also caught a full win for the week, but some of those gains were returned as it had a couple of losses.

Unfortunately, the losses were much larger than the gains, so the strategy sulked off with a 71.5-pip or 1.43% loss. 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.

USD/JPY had more than its usual share of valid inside bar signals for the week, scoring wins on most of the plays, while Guppy scored a two-for-two on its long positions.

With that, the system was able to chalk up a total of 73 pips in gains for the week. Read more.
