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

By the way, if you missed it, then you can check my monthly evaluation for the July period here.

Trading conditions finally improved on August 8 since volatility picked up and there was a clear downtrend on that day.

And fortunately, both Variants were able to open trades in the direction of the trend.

Moreover, there was a very strong uptrend on August 9 and both Variants were happily able to open one trade (trade #29) before that strong uptrend even materialized.

Quite naturally, both Variants had a good run. However, the Trailing Variant really profited more from the volatility injection. A ton more, in fact.

As for specifics, the Fixed TP Variant is now up by 1.72% for the month, which is a good haul since it was only up by 0.68% previously.

In contrast, the Trailing Variant was barely above breakeven previously with a 0.02% gain. However, the open trades from August 7 were closed at much better prices and the Variant rode the entirety of the uptrend on August 9.

In fact, the Variant is still riding the uptrend since trade #29 is still actually open. The trailing rules have already kicked in, though, and the Trailing Variant has a solid 6.94% in gains locked in.

Anyhow, you can  check out the details by clicking on the relevant jump links below.

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.

And if you find that interesting, then you may wanna click on the links below to read about and understand the rules of the 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.
