I’ve got a couple of weeks’ worth of signals from this mechanical trading strategy. Did it score some wins or not?

If this is the first time you’re reading about this strategy, I suggest you take a look at the system rules before reading on.

Also, this tweaked version makes use of an adjusted stop loss size (from the original 20% of the first candlestick to 40% of its length) on both USD/JPY and GBP/JPY.

The system generated these signals for USD/JPY:

Zooming in to the short-term time frames helped me check if these were triggered and if any stops or targets were hit.

Not bad, eh? This pair was off to a rough start but more than made up for those losses with three consecutive wins, racking up a total of 26 pips for the pair. The percentage P/L depends on how position sizes were calculated.

And here are the inside bar signals for GBP/JPY:

Five valid signals materialized but only four were triggered, and here’s how those turned out:

And with that, Guppy wound up with a total of 81 pips in gains, thanks to its own set of three consecutive wins. That rounds up to a 107-pip gain for the mechanical trading system over the past couple of weeks.
