Last week’s forex trading yielded mixed results for the HLHB System, as it lost pips on EUR/USD but gained pips on GBP/USD.

EUR/USD

Now this is what the HLHB Trend-Catcher System is all about! Though it didn’t pop up a lot of signals on EUR/USD, it was able to successfully keep out fakeouts and maximize pips on the signals that did pass the RSI filter. EUR/USD ended the week pretty much near its weekly open price, but not before the system gained 352 pips from it. Woot! Woot!

Though the system’s performance on GBP/USD wasn’t as stellar as in EUR/USD, it wasn’t too bad either. Only signal #5 turned out to be a fakeout, and even its losses wasn’t enough to offset gains from signals 1, 4, and 8. By the end of the week the system gained 133 pips on GBP/USD. Not bad!
