A new trading week is already underway, which means another batch of daily updates. So, how did the two Variants fare?

Well, price action on July 16 can be described as choppy, sideways, and with very limited volatility. In fact, the days range was only a measly 52 pips.

In other words, the very same terrible trading conditions when the system lost a large chunk of its gains during the last week of June and when the system went into a very painful losing streak during the first few days of May.

Needless to say, both Variants had a very bad time on July 16. Maybe this was a belated Friday the 13th effect? I dunno.

Anyhow, five trades were generated on July 16 and not a single one was a winner. NOT. A. SINGLE. ONE.

By the way, did I mention that the open trade from last Friday (trade # 49) was a loser. Well, I’m mentioning that now. Yes, that open trade from last Friday was a loser.

The Trailing Variant had other open trades (trades # 47 and 48). And while they were closed at a slightly more profitable price level compared to last Friday’s prices, the extra profits were just not enough to offset the loss from trade # 49.

Anyhow, the Fixed TP Variant returned a large chunk of its gains and is now only up by 1.68% for the month (+3.72% previous). Obviously, the Trailing Variant also suffered and is now only up by 1.60% for the month (+3.55% previous).
