Big turnaround in the Euro this morning with far better German data than expected, followed by strong UK data. Still too quick to close a profitable trade - two centuries available on the sterling pairs. Need hypnotherapy or something.

Re: ICC Forex System testing

GMP started this thread thinking out loud:
trawler fishermen don't expect to catch a whole shoal of fish, they just need to net enough to make a living... likewise, I don't need to catch every pip of a move, I just need to make a profit - what a market does after I exit is immaterial if I've made a decent gain

In trading, you have to take the rough with the smooth, but I lost 7 out of 7 trades for -147 pips to start with this morning, and that's as rough as I want to experience it, thankyou. Had a feeling it'd be choppy with no real news 'til the US durable goods figures due lunchtime, but it turned into a perfect anti-fit for my system.
Well overdue a morning like this, but it's always a bugger to take when it happens.

Only decent mover was sterling but I wasn't in place early enough to catch the entries. Otherwise, complete & utter August frustration.

Strict 10/15/20 targets vs.(notional exits where different)
Predictable that the post-US open results differ from the morning - far better off using targets this afternoon, and far better off using conditional exits this morning.

Intending to focus on these four for the rest of August. The drop-off in volume makes results less useful, but at least these markets retain some semblance of normality.
Nice clear morning for once.

GMP started this thread Junking this - classic case of reading too much into light volume market behaviour.

Afternoon as smooth as the morning. Funny how when you tweak a system, its first day or two works like a charm. Tough to envisage these results being repeated.

Encouragingly small losses on a becalmed morning.
