Must-Read For New Readers
If you’re a first-time reader who stumbled across this write-up for some unknown reason, and you have no idea what this is all about, then just know that I crafted a purely mechanical trading system, pursuant to My 2018 Trading Resolution.
If that piques your interest and if you may wanna know more, then click on the links below to read about the rules of the system.

- Updated: The Happy Hunter Price Action System (Trailing Variant)
However, let me just give these statements/disclaimers:
Firstly, I make no claim to the profitability of this system (I’m forward testing it after all), so if you use the system to trade real money without doing your own tests, that’s on you, whether you lose money or get lucky and make money
Secondly, there’s no central exchange for the forex market, so there may be discrepancies in our data feed, and it’s highly probable that I may have a valid signal based on my charts where none exist on yours (and vice versa)
With that out of the way, it’s time to finally discuss how the week went.
Below you’ll find charts of each trading day of the week. And 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 opened or closed. And the details of each trade are contained in the table after the charts. Just scroll down.

The Trailing Variant’s Trade Details
This Week’s Performance
Trading conditions during the past week were rough overall. Sure, there was a clear uptrend during the first half of the week, but intraday price action was rather choppy, so sell orders were triggered, which then resulted in losses.
Even so, the Fixed TP Variant was able to eke out a 0.53% gain for the week while the Trailing Variant was able to capture a more satisfying 1.89% weekly gain.
Do note that the Trailing Variant was able to outperform the Fixed TP Variant. This was due to trades # 55, 57, and 58, which were all long trades that were able to ride a large chunk of the uptrend during the first half of the week.
These then gave the Trailing Variant a large enough cushion that allowed it to absorb the string of losses that came later due to the choppy price action.
Anyhow, I was kinda expecting the choppy conditions. If you can still remember last week’s recap, I expressed concern back then that selling pressure was notable despite the upside breakout from the symmetrical triangle that I identified two weeks ago, which implies that sellers haven’t given up on GBP/NZD yet.
And, well, we saw a continuation of that. In fact, sellers eventually began to win out during the latter half of the week. Whether bears will win out to bulls will regain their footing remains to be seen.
Another thing worth pointing out is that we encountered two more Entry Type 1 trades that would have been profitable if they weren’t filtered out by the two-hour time limit.
Anyhow, I’m currently working on a way to address this. And hopefully I’ll have the tweak(s) up before the end of the month.
The “Bigger Picture” View
I’ll just leave those there since they’re pretty self-explanatory. I’ll just add that it’s kinda nice that both Variants are still in positive territory, despite the choppy intraday price action in February and March. Although it’s a bit disappointing that both Variants are way off their respective high water marks.
Anyhow, that’s all for today!
