Both pairs I’m watching on this strategy only caught one signal each.
Did these positions at least catch any pips?
USD/JPY had a few inside bar patterns that formed throughout the week, but only one had its entry triggered.
This signal popped up at the start of an uptrend, so the pair was able to catch a few pips from the position.Unfortunately it didn’t stay open long enough to catch the entire rally that followed!
Still ain’t complainin’ about the 24 pips it bagged, though:
GBP/JPY also opened only one position for the week, even though it formed multiple inside bar patterns.
The pair was actually trading sideways for the most part, and the long play popped up towards the end of a quick rally.
Price moved slightly higher when the long position was opened, but it didn’t climb high enough to reach the PT.
Eventually it reversed course and tumbled all the way down to the stop loss. Ouch!
The percentage win/loss depends on how position sizes are calculated.
