Taking this opportunity to catch up to my HLHB updates! Unfortunately for my mechanical forex trading system, the last week of May wasn’t good for EUR/USD and GBP/USD.

Though it wasn’t exactly fakeout galore for EUR/USD in the last week of May, there were two signals that weighed enough in the final stats to matter. Yep, I’m talking about signals #2 and #4, which were both valid but had popped up just before the pair reversed its direction. By the end of the week the HLHB System is down 91 pips from EUR/USD. Boo!

It was a decent week for GBP/USD as more than a couple of signals turned out to be valid. Even better, they yielded net gains for the HLHB System. Signals #4 and #8 were especially fortunate, especially since price action got tight after the drop after signal #2 (which was invalid, by the way). By the end of the week the system had 38 pips on Cable. Right on!
