Not as good as the previous week, but not so bad either! Here’s what happened to the system’s forex trades on EUR/USD and GBP/USD.

EUR/USD

Fakeout galore! Thanks to EUR/USD’s tight ranging conditions, only 1 out of 11 signals got validated last week. Luckily for the system, it also turned out to be a winner. Signal #10 would’ve yielded more pips than signal #8, but it got invalidated by the RSI filter. At least the filter did its job this time!

1 Sell 1.0791 1.0791 0 There was no crossover

GBP/USD

Unlike in EUR/USD, there were more valid signals on GBP/USD’s chart last week. Too bad that most of them turned out to be fakeouts though! Only signal #5 yielded solid results, enough to at least offset losses from signals #1, #3, and #7. By the end of the week the system is down 13 pips on the pair. Not too bad, I think.
