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.
This week, Huck opened a whopping NINE new trades from the majors. Though she lost 64 pips (-0.21%) from the closed trades, her open trades make her think the system is set up for some cool wins in the next few days. Read more.
SMA Crossover Pullback
Robopip’s newbie-friendly SMA Crossover Pullback trading system is as simple as its name suggests.
The other pairs are still waiting for a fresh set of crossovers to generate new positions. 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.
This mech system was also off to a slow start since it saw several inside bar patterns but only opened one position on USD/JPY. At least that one turned out a winner with 19 pips in gains! Read more.
Short-Term Bollinger Reversion Strategy 2.0
