Another day, another update for the Happy Hunter Trading System! So, how did the two Variants fare in the most recent hunt?

Was price action on July 26 still very choppy? Check! Was volatility still abnormally low? Check! Did  both Variants of the (not so) Happy Hunter continue to bleed out? Check!

Hello darkness, my old friend
Hello darkness, my old friend…

The Fixed TP Variant actually won more trades than it lost. But because volatility has been shrinking, the ATRH also dwindled to a mere 25 pips, so the Variant’s poor reward-to-risk ratio became even poorer.

If you check out the trade details, you’ll see that a full win only yielded a 0.38% in gains and they were just not enough to offset the losses, so the Fixed TP Variant’s losses for the month increased slightly to 2.27% (-2.09% previous).

The Trailing Variant had it worse since all of the winning trades were closed at SW which barely put a dent on the losses. Anyhow, the Trailing Variant is now down by 1.70% for the month (-0.54% previous).

By the way, if you’re a first-time reader and have no idea what this is all about, then just know that I’m forward testing a purely mechanical trading system.

Also, if you’re wondering what the numbers on the charts are about, they refer to the trade #, based on the chronological order when the signal was generated, not necessarily when the trade was executed.

Oh, also note that you can find the details of each trade in the tables below the chart. If the table is too small to read, just remember that you can click on it to enlarge it.
