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 net loss of 57 pips (-0.19%) from closing two trades. She’s not too bothered, though, since her open trades have locked in more than enough pips to cover this week’s losses. 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.

After an impressive four-week winning streak, the system carried on with strong bullish trends on most of the pairs.

Some showed signs of slowing from the climb, with only EUR/JPY snagging a new crossover and opening a fresh short position for the week.

For now, the strategy had no wins or losses as it waits for more market clues. Check out the latest play, though! 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 strategy chalked up a fresh batch of positions for both pairs this week, but unfortunately, this didn’t work out in its favor.

The long position on USD/CAD and the short play on CAD/CHF hit their full stop losses, resulting in a 100-pip or 2% 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.

These pairs had a handful of valid plays for the week, yielding a couple of losses and just one win. Fortunately, the winning position was more than enough to offset the losing ones, ending up in a 31-pip gain. Read more.
