This mech system saw a few early exits on new crossovers but still managed to rake in some gains. See 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 short position from the other week but sadly, this did not gain much downside momentum before turning higher and getting closed on a new crossover.

Fortunately it was able to make this early exit at a lower price and lock in some gains. A new position was opened soon after, but I’m a bit concerned that the pair is just moving sideways.

Cable also had a short position left open but just as I feared, this was generated too late at the bottom of the slide. The position was also closed on a new crossover, just a few pips shy of its stop loss.

The pair also scored a new long signal soon after, and it’s looking good so far.

EUR/JPY still has its short position going from a few weeks back, and the trailing stop was rolled down after that gap lower. Price seems to be edging close to its full target, but I don’t want to get too excited about it!

Trade Summary:

SMA Crossover Pullback Positions as of May 7, 2019
Pair Position Entry SL PT Status Pips %
EUR/USD Short 1.1246 1.1496 1.0946 Closed +68 +0.45
GBP/USD Short 1.2946 1.3096 1.2646 Closed -146 -0.97
EUR/JPY Short 126.02 127.52 123.02 Open
GBP/USD Long 1.3032 1.2882 1.3332 Open
EUR/USD Long 1.1152 1.1002 1.1452 Open

And with that, the system wound up with a 78-pip or a 0.52% loss on the account mostly due to Cable’s nearly full loss.

All three pairs have positions left open, with EUR/JPY locking in pips with its ongoing short play while the dollar pairs try to catch gains on long positions.
