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 talked about her system being on the wrong side of strong trends on ALL of the currency pairs that she’s watching.

Read on to see how she sustained a 381-pip loss (-1.27%) from closing three positions! 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 chalked up another good week as it scored a full win on its long GBP/USD play.

The long position on EUR/USD is still open for now, but the trailing stop has been activated to lock in pips along the way. That also means it’s a risk-free position!

With that, the system was able to close out with another 300-pip or 2.00% gain, marking its third consecutive week in the green. 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 had only one valid play for the week as CAD/CHF caught a long position while USD/CAD had a signal-free run.

Fortunately, the sole position turned out to be a big winner as it reached both profit targets and locked in 72.5 pips or a 1.45% gain. 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 currency pairs logged in their fair share of wins and losses, with USD/JPY ending up with a 14-pip loss and GBP/JPY scoring a 14-pip gain. That’s right, the system landed back in break even after opening six positions for the week. Read more.
