Yikes, I’m seeing choppy price action on the pairs I’m watching!
Did this strategy manage to trim losses?
EUR/USD had a long position from waaay back that had its trailing stop locking in gains along the way.The pair edged higher throughout the week and came pretty close to the full profit target before pulling back.
While I’m not too worried about this risk-free position, I’m still gonna keep my robot fingers crossed that EUR/USD is able to resume the climb to the PT instead of getting an early exit.
A long position was opened soon after when Stochastic pulled out of the oversold area, and unfortunately this snagged losses on an early exit.
As for EUR/JPY, its short position from the previous update was closed early when a bullish crossover materialized.
A long signal was generated afterwards, and it looks like the climb is gaining some traction. I just hope the position wasn’t opened too late!
Here’s a look at the latest positions:
SMA Crossover Pullback Positions as of May 4, 2021
With that, the SMA Crossover Pullback System chalked up a 51-pip or 0.34% loss for the week.
So far, EUR/USD has at least 119 pips in the bag even if it hits the trailing stop, so this should make up for the losses and more.
