Read all about my HLHB Trend Catcher System if this is your first time hearing about it!
Fakeout galore! EUR/USD ranged for most of the week, so it’s not surprising that we saw a couple of fakeouts from the Trend-Catcher System. In fact, only signal #5 yielded a positive trade, which wasn’t enough to cover the losses from signals 2, 3, 6, 7, and 10.

What’s worse than a couple of small losing trades? A few big losing trades, that’s what. Though the HLHB System did a pretty good job at filtering some fakeouts, those that did escape the filter ended up as pretty significant losers. After two 54-pip losses and a 47-pip hit, the system took a 155-pip backstep from GBP/USD. Yipes!

Obviously, it wasn’t a good week for trend-catching. Hopefully next week’s data will be better. Fingers crossed! 🙂
