Another positive week for the HLHB!

The trend-catching system may have snagged a few fakeouts from GBP/USD this week but it all worked out in the end!

Before I show you last week’s numbers, make sure to read all about my HLHB Trend Catcher System if this is your first time hearing about it!

Trend Catcher SystemBasically, I’m catching trends whenever the 5 EMA crosses above or below the 10 EMA.

A trade is only valid if RSI crosses above or below the 50.00 mark when the signal pops up. And in this version, I’m adding ADX>25 to weed out the fakeouts.

As for stops, I’ll continue to use a 150-pip trailing stop and a profit target of 400 pips. This might change in the future, but I’ll stick to this one for now.

Oh, and as mentioned before, I’m switching back to applying the HLHB system to the 1-hour time frame. Using 4-hour in Q1 2017 and Q2 2017 wasn’t bad, but I think using this trend-catcher on the 1-hour could yield better results.

EUR/USD started the week on a weak note, which works for the HLHB because it’s nursing a short position from the previous weeks.

There are no new valid signals this week but I guess that’s okay because the open position just got more profitable.

The short trade is now guaranteed 193 pips! Woot!

Cable traded in wide ranges throughout the week. Unfortunately, a bunch of simple moving average crossovers were validated by the HLHB on Friday.

We’ll know if the open short trade works out in the next few days. My fingers are crossed!

USD/JPY reflected overall dollar strength until the middle of the week when the dollar rally fizzled out.

The HLHB System didn’t validate any trades but it’s still holding on to a short position from the previous week. The stops are now adjusted so that it can lose a max of 104 pips so that’s something!

Here’s a summary of the open and closed trades from the last couple of days’ worth of trading:
