Another day, another update for the Happy Hunter Trading System! So, how did the two Variants fare in the most recent hunt?
Volatility picked up even more on September 19. And while intraday price action was still a bit choppy, both Variants of the Happy Hunter Trading System were able to come out ahead.
The increase in volatility was a real boon for the Fixed TP Variant since the volatility boost allowed almost all winning trades to reach TP.
And the string of wins on September 19 allowed the Fixed TP Variant to jump back into positive territory with a 1.42% gain for the month (-0.80% previous).
As for the Trailing Variant, well, this is how GBP/NZD’s intraday price action looked on the 1-hour chart.
As you can see, GBP/NZD was trending lower on September 19 and continued to do so during the first half of September 20.
And while the system was able to generate a bunch of trades in the direction of the trend, the choppy price action meant that all but one of the winning trades were closed at SW. All. But. One.
In other words, the choppy price action made it very hard for the Trailing Variant to hold onto its gains. The Trailing Variant still came out slightly ahead, though, so it’s now up by 1.03% for the month (+0.54% previous).
It’s also worth pointing out that the Trailing Variant is now lagging behind the Fixed TP Variant. Kinda disappointing when one considers that the Trailing Variant was up by 6.70% for the month at one point.
