From the lab into the top six

More than a year we observed for you new strategies live and constantly evaluated in our laboratory.

We keep up with the traders very close, have regular contact and get the data very reliable.

Finally, we have decided to include two strategies in our top six performers.

On the one hand the FX Multi System, a strategy with a super convincing performance of + 38.79%. For over two years we observe and examine the figures of this trader and his performances have convinced us completely!

Secondly, the FX Turn 46, a strategy that convinced us since three years. Although it performed slightly negative last year, this trend strategy is highly recommended.

Two other strategies have having to leave the top six. On the one hand there is the FX System Pro, it acts only on the EURUSD and contains one of the currencies that are traded in the FX System Multi and secondly the FXS-€$-Index, which is encountered in this form at no interest.

4. QUARTER 2015
The results

Overall, the 4th quarter average of all six main strategies showed a positive result. All strategies act EURUSD Spot. This result was driven by the FX Time Pro.

Despite the uncertainties in the global markets in general and not clear statements of the central banks, in particular the 4th quarter accounted for a ride by high mountains and deep valleys.

Outstanding here was the FX Time Pro. Despite a decline of - 41.18 % in December, it closed the 4th quarter with a performance of + 23.42 % and is the winner in the 4th quarter.

With its high leverage of 10 his great qualities lie in sideways markets. This appeared clearly in the results in October (+ 29.08 %) and in November (+ 35.52 %). At the same time, it became the clear no. 1 with a great performance of + 51.65 % in 2015.

2nd place in the 4th quarter follows FX Turn 46. It closed the 4th quarter with a profit of + 6.45 %. In all the last three months of the last quarter, there was a positive result. Unfortunately, its reversal strategy, however stayed far below its yearly expectations with a profit of – 2.92 %. This result means fifth place of the six main strategies.

Third place in the 4th quarter belongs to FX Octopus Pro, who reached with his short reversal strategy a performance of + 3.84 %. The month of October with a gain of + 9.72% was not only decisive for the last quarter, but also for the annual result. With an increase of + 9.39 % it closed the year with a satisfactory performance in 3rd place of the six main strategies.

4th Place in the last quarter went to the FX Dawn. Based on early morning reversals the strategy ended with – 4.38 % in the last quarter. The strategy performance also was hail stoned by poor December earnings. Nevertheless, it finished the year in fourth place with an increase of + 6.45 %.

5th place is the FX Daytrade Pro with a loss of – 5.56 % in the last quarter. The discretionary traded trend strategy had clearly difficulties identifying trends. However, the net profit in 2015 is still up by + 9.79 %. With this result it occupies 2nd place on an annual basis.

Finally, 6th place overall, the FX System Pro, the opposite of its broader strategy FX System Multi, with a negative performance of – 9.58 % in the last quarter, and an annual loss of – 15.26 %. With this result the FX System Pro will descend from the top strategies. We continue to monitor him in the lab.

The movers and losers, we will list again in our annual overview.

We look forward to a no less exciting trading in 2016!

3. QUARTER 2015 <br/>The results

October 08, 2015

3. QUARTER 2015
The results

The main performance direction in Q3 was south. All strategies are trading EURUSD spot, only.

The uncertainty of the world wide markets also led our strategies to a not so well performance.

The only ray of hope was the FX Dawn. With it’s performance of almost + 5% he became the no. 1 strategy in Q3. The year to date performance of the first 9 month increased to more than + 10% and is no. 3 of all our main strategies.

Second place in Q3 is the FX Daytrade Pro. Being a trend strategy it’s result wasn’t so bad in last quarter’s side way markets. It is still our second best strategy in 2015 with a performance of +15.35% in the first nine month.

Third place is FX Turn 46. The strategy targeting medium term reversals lost – 2.60% in Q3. It’s year to date performance is almost - 10% and still needs to prove that it can repeat the performances of 2013 and 2014.

FX Octopus Pro finished fourth last quarter. This short term reversal strategy closed Q3 with a minus of -2.74%. In the first nine month it is the fourth best performer with a plus of 5.54%.

Fifth place FX Time Pro. With a leverage of 10 it is a more speculative strategy than all of our other strategies. In Q3 it lost almost – 10% but in the year to date contex it is still the leader with a performance of +28.23%.

Lastly FX Sytem Pro on place six. The strategy normally uses more currency pairs to perform well. You can see the results on our laboratory-site being the FX System Multi. The EURUSD FX System Pro lost more than 19% in the last quarter, which led the year to date performance into the negative sector, too with a result of –5.69%.

All in all Q3 was a set back, but due to the first half year results, most of the strategies still have a positive performance in 2015. We all are working hard to improve the performances in the last quarter of 2015.

2. QUARTER 2015<br/>The results

July 08, 2015

2. QUARTER 2015
The results

From „sensational" to „you can do it better” are results of Q2-2015. All strategies are trading EURUSD spot.

FX Time Pro had an outstanding Q2. With a leverage of ten it achieved a fantastic performance of more than + 37% and could more than offset its result of Q1. The performance for the first half of 2015 is + 37.43% and thus No. 1 of all our strategies.

The EURUSD strategy of the FX System Pro shows itself very continuously. After a + 4% in Q1 it achieved an additional + 10% in Q2. The result of first half of 2015 increased to + 13.87%.

The result of the FX Octopus Pro convinced, too. With more than + 2.5% in Q2 the first half of 2015 result increased to + 8.28%.

The FX Dawn achieved a slightly positive result in Q2 and increased to + 5.88% for the first half of 2015.

At the lower end in Q2 we have the two trend models FX Daytrade Pro and FX Turn 46. Both couldn’t achieve a positive performance and closed with a minus lower than – 6.5%.

The champion of Q1 the FX Daytrade Pro reduced his performance to + 16.60% for the first half of 2015.

Finally the FX Turn 46 needs more time to get out of the negative. We can’t be satisfied with the negative result of – 6.76% for the first half of 2015.

All in all we had a successful first half of 2015 and we will do our best to further increase our performance.

MAY 2015<br>Due to fine tuning + 20%

June 04, 2015

MAY 2015
Due to fine tuning + 20%

After small adjustments in the beginning of April 2015 and the raising of three times the leverage to maximum 20 the FX Time Pro closed the second month in the row with a very good result: + 20.33%

We consciously decided to increase the risk and thus the earnings opportunities within this strategy. At the same time we benefited from a more or less laterally moving EURUSD with a few exceptions of strong price movements.

In April we had 120 winning trades out of 158 positions which is ration of 76%. In May we had 101 winning trades out of 140 positions which was "only” 72%

Nevertheless the result in May + 20.33% was a bit higher than the April + 19.72%.

We are very excited to see what June will deliver.

FX TRADERS!<br/>as computers replace humans

September 09, 2014

as computers replace humans

A widening probe of the foreign-exchange market is roiling an industry already under pressure to reduce costs as computer platforms displace human traders.

Electronic dealing, which accounted for 66 percent of all currency transactions in 2013 and 20 percent in 2001, will increase to 76 percent within five years, according to Aite Group LLC, a Boston-based consulting firm that reviewed Bank for International Settlements data.

About 81 percent of spot trading -- the buying and selling of currency for immediate delivery -- will be electronic by 2018, Aite said.

Christopher Wheeler of Mediobanca SpA in London: "It’s also boosting demand from clients for greater transparency in pricing and transaction charges, accelerating a longer-term shift in trading onto electronic platforms. The margins are very, very skinny in foreign exchange because it’s easy to move onto a trading platform. The move by banks into electronic trading in other areas has cost a large number of jobs, and we’ve seen revenue come off sharply. The foreign-exchange probe won’t help this.”

Cormac Leech, an analyst at Liberum Capital Ltd. in London: "The push toward electronic trading probably will lower costs for customers and boost transparency of pricing. It may also squeeze margins for banks.”

Chris Purves, London-based global head of foreign-exchange, rates and credit electronic trading at UBS AG: "Many algorithms in previous foreign-exchange platforms were very, very basic -- not a lot more than egg timers. The equities world, on the other hand, had advanced algorithms with gaming technology inside of them -- they would randomly split up clip sizes to provide best execution. A lot of that technology has now been brought into the foreign-exchange world.”

Banks’ income from foreign exchange already has been squeezed. Volatility, a key driver of revenue, is declining as concern that Europe’s sovereign-debt crisis would trigger the breakup of the euro eased and central banks provided unprecedented liquidity to stabilize markets.

Kevin McPartland, head of market-structure research at consulting firm Greenwich Associates: "No matter how you slice it, foreign-exchange options will be more expensive for clients to trade and for banks to take on. Shrinking profits from higher operational costs and the increased cost of capital may cause banks to focus on generating revenue from their traditional cash business and redirect money into technology that facilitates trading through an agency model.”

Forex Scorpion's FX_Time_Pro_1

As announced late last month, we publish our signals from FX Time Pro on MyFXbook.

We have fed our fully automated program into MyFXbook and therefore can not change anything in current positions. This is why many Forex enthusiasts pursue MyFXbook, because here everything is live - profits as well as losses.

But why FX Time Pro 1?

The positions at Myfxbook differ somewhat from our FX Time Pro Live signals, which we publish here on our website. This is due to the fact that we have a higher spread at Myfxbook. That's why we call it the FX Time Pro 1. These deviations can be beneficial, but sometimes also a disadvantage.

In any case, you have the opportunity to follow our work here on our website, as well as here at MyFXbook.

MyFXbook twitters the FX Time Pro 1 signals giving you another opportunity to pursue our work, but with a five minute delay.

As the phrase goes: Follow us on Twitter @ForexScorpion!

Have fun!

POSITIVE!<br/>Good start into September …

September 08, 2014

Good start into September …

The first week of September brought a good starting point for the month.

With 16 positions the FX Octopus Pro was below the weekly average of approximately 25 trades in a week, but all 16 trades were closed in positive territory. This very good result was reflected in the performance for the last week: + 1.63%.

The FX Time Pro could not reach the 100% winning trades of the FX Octopus Pro, but with 77.55% winners out of 49 trades it achieved a better performance. The good result was rewarded with a magnificent weekly performance of + 3.80%.

Last but not least the FX Daytrade Pro showed a great weekly performance, too. Its two opened positions were closed with a great weekly result of + 2.00%.

All in all it was a positive start in September.

ECB<br/>Interest rates at new record lows …

September 04, 2014

Interest rates at new record lows …

(Reuters) - The European Central Bank cut interest rates to new record lows on Thursday, unexpectedly lowering borrowing costs to try to lift inflation from rock-bottom levels and support the stagnating euro zone economy.

The ECB cut its main refinancing rate to 0.05 percent from 0.15 percent. ECB President Mario Draghi had said after the ECB's last rate cut in June that "for all the practical purposes, we have reached the lower bound".

In a landmark speech on Aug. 22, however, Draghi said indications from financial markets showed inflation expectations "exhibited significant declines at all horizons" in August.

Euro zone inflation slowed to 0.3 percent last month, sinking deeper below the ECB's target of just under 2 percent and raising the specter of deflation in the euro zone.

On Thursday, the ECB also said it had lowered the rate on bank overnight deposits to -0.20 percent, which means banks pay to park funds at the central bank, and cut its marginal lending facility - or emergency borrowing rate - to 0.30 percent.

Markets now turn their attention to ECB President Mario Draghi's 1230 GMT (0930 EDT) news conference, at which he is expected to give a more detailed explanation of the ECB's decision.

September 03, 2014

FX Octopus Pro's
faltering August ...

Increasing volatility in the EURUSD in August is reflected in the result of the FX Octopus Pro.

The first two weeks in particular knew one way only: South.

Out of 122 positions only 59 closed with profit, 63 positions closed in the red.

Despite the recovery at the end of the month the FX Octopus Pro closed with a minus of 4.63%

On the annual basis, however, the FX Octopus Pro benefits from its strong previous months and still has a great performance: + 17.60% YTD
