Forex Shocker performance

January 19th, 2010

Just a quick post about the performance of Forex Shocker v1.1 and v2.0 year to date. When v2.0 came out I stopped v1.1 on my demo account, but started it again week 1 this year because I wanted to see if it really was better than the earlier version.

Here’s the trades of V1.1 since 2010-01-04:

Currency   Trades    Pips       Profit($)
GBPUSD     15           75.0      75.00
USDCAD     5             23.8      23.06
EURCHF     21           13.8      13.20
EURGBP     17           69.4      112.18
USDCHF     18           81.4      79.76
EURUSD     15           76.9      76.90

and V2 the same period:

Currency   Trades     Pips      Profit($)
GBPUSD     12           41.8       41.80
USDCAD     11           32.0       30.90
EURCHF     29           19.9       19.21
EURGBP     10           -7.5       -12.79
USDCHF     10           42.9       41.94
EURUSD     10           42.5       42.50

As you can see it is quite a different picture, especially for EURGBP, but overall V1.1 trades much better than v2.0 (the only pair that v2.0 have an advantage in seems to be USDCAD, but I wouldn’t trade that pair on either version anyway). This is on a demo account, of course the performance live won’t be as good, but slippage effects both versions so I still think the comparison is valid.

So, my plan is to enable V1.1 on my live account again and let it trade EURGBP, USDCHF, EURUSD and GBPUSD. I will also keep v2.0 live trading USDCHF, EURUSD and GBPUSD as before, because as far as I can see it is very rare that they actually take the same trades. Just in case I will put them on max 1 open trade each.

Oh yeah, I know I wrote about being tired of scalpers yesterday. I still am, but during my analysis of their performance I spotted this. If you want to analyze it further yourself you can look at my demo account (click the graph above). It trades both version with default settings with fixed lotsize of 0.1 at JadeFX Demo.
