Sideways action led to another set of early exit signals on this trend-following strategy, and here’s how the latest positions turned out.

If this is the first time you’re reading about the SMA Crossover Pullback system, make sure you look at the trading rules and risk management adjustments first.

EUR/USD had a long position left open from the earlier update, but this had to be closed on yet another new crossover. A short stochastic pullback signal soon followed.

Cable’s long position from the other week also had to be closed early on a bearish crossover, which was then followed by a short signal.

As for EUR/JPY, the uptrend is still going so there have been no new crossovers yet. Too bad so many pips have been left on the table after the previous long position already hit its target!

Trade Summary:

SMA Crossover Pullback Positions as of July 1, 2018
Pair Position Entry SL PT Status P/L  (pips) P/L  (%)
EUR/USD Long 1.1751 1.1601 1.2051 Closed -68 -0.45
GBP/USD Long 1.3212 1.3062 1.3512 Closed -12 -0.08
EUR/USD Short 1.1696 1.1846 1.1396 Open
GBP/USD Short 1.3274 1.3424 1.2974 Open

With that, the SMA Crossover Pullback system snagged an 80-pip loss or a 0.53% dent on the account for the week.

To its credit, though, it was able to trim potential losses as the exit signals from new crossovers popped up at slightly better prices than the dips.
