Before I head home to a galaxy far, far away for the holidays, I’ve summarized the SMA Crossover Pullback forex mechanical system results for the second half of 2015. Take a look!

*With risk management tweaks
The forex mechanical system was off to a strong start in July, raking in 900 pips or 6% in gains in just one week. However, this was followed by a losing streak when ranging market conditions were in play. The positive run resumed towards the end of August and I’ve decided to make some risk management adjustments to allow the strategy to lock in profits along the way.
This led to an improved performance in Q4, as the forex system didn’t end up giving back all gains during a reversal, but got hit by a couple of weeks’ worth of sideways price action again.
All in all, the SMA Crossover Pullback mechanical system was able to chalk up a total of 1,654 pips or 10.79 % for the past six months. A few more positions were left open before I took off for my home planet so I’ll just tally those results up when I return to earth next year. Hey, even forex robots need to take vacations, too! See you in 2016!
