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 previous update, but this had to be closed on a new crossover for a bit of a loss.

A long position soon followed, and this one is still open even though price just seems to be moving sideways for now.

Cable had a short position earlier on, and this also had to be closed on a new crossover. Fortunately for this one, it was able to score a small win!

It turns out that bullish crossover was short-lived, and the pair snagged another short pullback signal.

EUR/JPY’s short position seems to be going well, as price gained more downside momentum. I’m just a bit worried that the gap between the moving averages is closing in!

With that, the system ended up with a meager 4-pip or 0.01% gain, which ain’t much… but at least it’s not a loss this time!

This caps off the SMA Crossover Pullback System’s 11-week losing streak. Phew!

All three pairs have positions left open for now, so I’m gonna keep my robot fingers crossed that these turn out positive overall.
