Fakeouts, fakeouts everywhere! Not a good forex trading week for the HLHB System no thanks to tons of fakeouts on EUR/USD and GBP/USD.
Read all about my HLHB Trend Catcher System if this is your first time hearing about it!
EUR/USD was on a tight range for most of the week, so it’s not exactly surprising that this trend-catcher system caught tons of fakeouts. Signal #10 hurt significantly since it was followed by a new crossover after a major report. Signal #9 would’ve yielded decent pips but it was invalidated by the RSI filter. By the end of the week the system is down by 92 pips. Bleh.

GBP/USD had a more interesting price action with a steady uptrend at the start of the week. Unfortunately, the pip-yielding signal was invalidated by the RSI filter. Signal #6 saved the day with its 146-pip win though, and canceled out most of the losses. Phew!

|3||Buy||1.5461||1.5461||0||RSI was already above 50|

Not a bad week, I think. It wouldn’t hurt to have a trending week this week though. My fingers and toes are crossed! 🙂
