Earlier than I present you final week’s numbers, be sure that to learn all about my HLHB Trend Catcher System if that is your first time listening to about it!
Principally, I’m catching developments each time the 5 EMA crosses above or under the 10 EMA.
As for stops, I’ll proceed to make use of a 150-pip trailing stop and a revenue goal of 400 pips. This may change sooner or later, however I’ll keep on with this one for now.
Oh, and as talked about earlier than, I’m switching again to applying the HLHB system to the 1-hour time frame. Utilizing 4-hour in Q1 2017 and Q2 2017 wasn’t unhealthy, however I feel utilizing this trend-catcher on the 1-hour may yield higher outcomes.
EUR/USD noticed a powerful upswing early within the week however the bulls and bears could have turned their eyes elsewhere as a result of the pair traded within the tight vary till the week ended.

Cable didn’t actually go anyplace this week however we did see large swings that may’ve made this trend-catcher a pip or two.
