The latest set of crossovers have generated fresh signals for this mechanical system. Here’s how the positions are looking.

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 opened in the earlier update, but this one had to be closed early when a new crossover formed.

Although this resulted to a loss for the pair, I’m pretty happy with how the early exit was able to trim losses before price dropped even further.

GBP/USD had a new bearish crossover in the past week, and this generated a valid Stochastic pullback short signal.

Since this short play was just opened before the end of the week, it’s still open for now and I’m keeping my robot fingers crossed that it gains bearish momentum.

As for EUR/JPY, the pair had a short signal early the week, but it had to be closed quickly when a bullish crossover materialized.

This was then followed by a valid long Stochastic pullback signal, and this position is still open as well.
