EUR/USD

EUR/USD failed to get momentum after it rose to the 1.1300 area at the beginning of the week. The ranging environment yielded a lot of fakeouts for the HLHB System, which eventually added up to a 72-pip loss for the week. Boo!

GBP/USD’s price action was more trend-y than EUR/USD’s. The pair rose to the 1.5200 area where it found intraweek resistance. Its move back to the 1.5000 support was also a good opportunity for intraday trends. In fact, signal #8 could have yielded pips for the system, if only it wasn’t invalidated by the RSI filter. Still, the system gained a cute 13 pips from GBP/USD by the end of the week.
