The US tech sector lost value for a fifth straight session Monday with bellwethers such as Facebook, Amazon, Apple, and Alphabet/Google heading lower into Thursday's earnings release from Amazon and Alphabet. In FX markets, investors are looking ahead for confirmation of incoming USD strength.

Hi Fxtime. What do you think about 10-11 hour usdcad candle? Is it worth going for 5 pips? Also do you lower your tp on breakout strategy during summer months? I have terrible results this week, want to lower tp by 1 pip, if doesn't help I will stop and start in september again

kom may I suggest you look at the article today as there is a trade based on that very candle but it doesn't utilise the trading range.

Sideway markets are destructive to any algo and we have had 10+ days of stagnant markets and lower volume. Sept might be a good restart point. ALL algos suffer periods of disjointed results and you have to look at the bigger picture and ask yourself if the annual outcome still gives the returns you want. Having looked at the results for my stuff I am loath to change settings or optimise the programmes as suspect we are just experiencing low vols. I am still up month on month as risk is spread across quite few markets and some have no correlation to each other to ensure revenue. Also correlated items will all fail together !
The best revenue so far over the last 4 wks are the ratio strategies eg eurgbp or audjpy

Thank fxtime. I'll wait for september. I'll will try ratio strategy, just need right programmer. Are they running 24hrs or on specific hours?

Ratio trades can be independent of time stamps but often as not for optimisation scenarios you can set the ratio trade for the eurgbp at 10am BST which allows the ratio trades to benefit and run ater all the European data has been released. Or you can time stamp for 6pm BST when the market becomes illiquid. Both are good start referencing pointers imho.

I haven't use Bayesian on Dax. Let's try:). Maximum sl on Dax is 50 points?

Yep....or a close below the range which ever is the smaller :-) These trades are small stake systems and are really designed for FX (todays article) but still overall give a positive account growth over a 12mth period. The real issue for these is volatility...you need it ! :-)
