June was a tough month for this mech system, but was it finally able to catch a break recently? Here are the latest trades.

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 bullish crossover earlier on, and this was followed by a long stochastic pullback signal. Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be gaining much upside momentum and would likely either hit its stop loss or get closed early on a new crossover soon.

Cable also had a bullish crossover that was later on followed by a long stochastic pullback signal, but this one wound up snagging an early exit.

Lastly, EUR/JPY had a short position from way back that also caught an early exit but for a small win. A long position was opened a few days later, and this one is still going.

Here’s how the positions are looking:

Trade Summary:

SMA Crossover Pullback Positions as of July 2, 2019
Pair Position Entry SL PT Status Pips %
EUR/JPY Short 121.97 123.47 118.97 Closed +11 +0.07
EUR/USD Long 1.1395 1.1245 1.1695 Open
GBP/USD Long 1.2673 1.2523 1.2973 Closed -17 -0.11

And with that, the system wound up with a 6-pip or 0.04% loss on the account, chalking up its sixth losing week in a row. If there’s anything good about this run, though, it’s that the loss was considerably smaller.

Do you think these trends are about to pick up anytime soon? The second quarter hasn’t historically been so strong for this mech system in previous years, so I’m still hoping that it does much better this Q3.
