It looks like this mech system is still on shaky ground these days as trends just can’t gain much traction. How did the latest positions turn 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 left open in the earlier update, but the pair didn’t go much lower before a new crossover emerged. Fortunately this was able to score a few pips.

Cable also had a short position left open in the earlier update, but price seems to have bottomed out early in the week. No early exits have been triggered yet, although it looks like a new crossover is brewing.

Lastly, EUR/JPY’s short position from the other week had to be closed on a new crossover for a loss. A long signal soon followed, but it looks like another early exit is coming up. Gah!

Here’s how the positions are looking:

Trade Summary:

SMA Crossover Pullback Positions as of July 16, 2019
Pair Position Entry SL PT Status Pips %
EUR/JPY Short 121.60 123.10 118.60 Closed -41 -0.27
GBP/USD Short 1.2520 1.2670 1.2220 Open
EUR/USD Short 1.1282 1.1432 1.0982 Closed +26 +0.17
EUR/JPY Long 121.80 120.30 124.80 Open

And with that, the system wound up with a 15-pip or 0.10% loss on the account, chalking up its eighth losing week in a row. Not a good start to the quarter, huh?

I’m still disappointed that this system can’t quite jump in on stronger trends recently and that early exits haven’t been able to lock even small gains either. The open positions on GBP/USD and EUR/JPY aren’t looking too good at the moment, too!
