Trends finally seem to be picking up as the open positions on this strategy are locking in gains. Take a look!
EUR/USD had a long position left open from the earlier update, but price just kept trading sideways that a new crossover triggered an early exit.This didn’t really work out for the pair as the long play had to be closed in the red.
A short Stochastic pullback signal popped up soon after, and this seems to be faring a bit better. Gonna keep my robot fingers crossed that the selloff picks up!
GBP/USD had a long position from way back that already had its trailing stop locking in pips along the way.The pair made new highs in the past few days, so the trailing stop was rolled higher to guarantee more gains.
If my calculations are correct, Cable should be holding on to at least 60 pips or 0.40% in winnings. Woot woot!
As for EUR/JPY, its bullish crossover from the previous update has been followed by a valid long signal.
The uptrend has picked up, but the pair has yet to move 150 pips in the trade’s direction to activate the trailing stop and have a risk-free position.
Here’s a look at the latest positions:
SMA Crossover Pullback Positions as of Feb. 2, 2021
All three pairs have positions open, and interestingly enough the euro pairs have opposite takes. I’m not too worried about GBP/USD since it’s in the black, but I’m hoping at least one of the EUR positions catches a win!
