Just finished crunching the numbers for the SMA Crossover Pullback system! Did Q2 2018 fare better than Q1 2018? And did this one outperform my other mech systems?
|Week||P/L in Pips||P/L in %|
|Aug. 28-Sept. 4||+78||+0.52|
|Sept. 25-Oct. 2||+116||+0.76|
This strategy was off to a running start with a strong 226-pip or 1.50% gain in the first week of July, following it up with an even stronger 300-pip or 2.00% win in the third week.
Its best run was in mid-August when all three pairs scored big wins, with Cable and EUR/JPY both hitting their full targets then and EUR/USD coming close but snagging its trailing stop before the reversal.
A couple of signal-free weeks followed, before three weeks in the black outweighed the 262-pip or 1.73% dent in mid-September. Shout out to the fellas who reminded me to trust in the system’s solid track record during this losing week!
Looking at the equity curve for Q3 gives a better picture of the steady climb throughout the past three months, with that slight dip in September.
Now that shows another good run like in Q2:
It also marks a big improvement over the roller coaster ride in the first quarter:
All in all, the SMA Crossover Pullback System managed to end up with a total of 1,121 pips or 7.60% for Q3 2018. That’s a bit below the previous quarter’s 9.57% gain but still a pretty decent one, nonetheless!
