I know it’s a bit early, but I’ve already crunched the Q4 numbers on this mechanical system.

See how it all turned out this year, too!

Wondering what in the forex world I’m talking about? Make sure you look at the trading rules and risk management adjustments first. And now here are the numbers!

The strategy wasn’t exactly off to the best of starts for the quarter, but it eventually made up for those losses for the rest of the period… and more!

In fact, its first losing week was followed by a six-week streak that involved full wins for EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and EUR/JPY!

A few early exits also contributed to the gains around mid-October to early November.

This allowed the strategy to end up with an impressive 1,221-pip gain or 8.24% win for Q4 2021. Woot woot!

This adds to the 190-pip or 1.26% gain in the previous quarter, as well as the 896-pip or 6.00% lead in Q2.

Not much dips on the system’s performance this time!

Although it plateaued towards the end of the year, it was still able to rack up a grand total of 2,519 pips or 16.90% in winnings this 2021.

This brings the strategy up by 1,298 pips or around 8.66% so far this year. And roughly half of these gains all came from Q4.

Pretty good run, huh?
