classic example of the charts knowing better than me - currently challenging the 61.8 fib, having advanced from the 50

Re: ICC Forex System testing

GMP started this thread EOD pip report:
£$ +18,+30,-8,+27
€$ -19,+2,+7
€£ +3,+6, 0
£¥ +34,+28,+21
€¥ +38,-17,+4, 0,+7
$¥ +35,+4,+9

Grand total: +229 pips
Sounds great, but it's seriously skewed by the fact that I adjusted the exit strategy partly based on those 3 early Yen trades, so it's curve-fitting. Take those 3 trades out and it's a more realistic +120, which is still a very good day by my standards.
Remains to be seen how well it'll perform under other conditions.

Key: Vertical line on the left is 8am UK time
Arrows are Entries, Ticks are successful exits, Crosses are unsuccessful exits, Thumbs up & down are signals (and their exit) rejected through timing (e.g. lunchtime, or just before a major economic data announcement)
