The final trading day of the week is done and over with. So, how did the two Variants fare during the last hunt of the week?

There was a rather strong downtrend on September 21, thanks to a media blitz about Theresa May’s perceived failure at Salzburg.

Unfortunately, no new trades in the direction of the trend were generated until the first half of the downtrend was already over.

Sure, there were IB patterns before the downtrend started, and there were even pending orders. However, they were canceled because of the time limit dictated by the rules of the system.

Anyhow, the system’s failure to generate new trades before the trend started, as well as the Fixed TP Variant’s inherently poor reward-to-risk ratio, meant that the Fixed TP Variant was forced to shave off some of its gains and is now only up by 2.08% for the month (+2.14% previous).

The Trailing Variant, meanwhile, was able to profit handsomely from the surge in volatility since the new winning trade (trade # 82) was more than enough to offset the full loss from trade # 81.

Moreover, the two open trades from September 20 (trades # 78 and 80) were also able to ride the downtrend, so the Trailing Variant is now up by 5.40% for the month (+2.36% previous).
