Dear traders,

Amidst the US elections, Covid and Brexit, the best semi-automated intraday system finally faced a losing week.

But fortunately, the loss was not big due to the unique money management approach. Last week’s total ended with -203 net pips and a -5.99 % loss.

12-Week Trading Result: 104 Wins & 41 Losses

The reason for the hard trading week was mostly due to 2 factors. The first and foremost factor is that each time we make intraday trade we need to be ready for out of the blue news as there are 3 ongoing crises: the US elections, Brexit and COVID. 

For instance, during our GBP trading day, there was unexpected news about the EU-UK missing the mid November deadline to finalize Brexit. Because of that, we were stopped out of our GBP positions. 

The other thing which has a remedy is overnight trading. On our GBPNZD trades both times we had initially winners. However, during the night the price went after 40 pips in profit into a stop loss. 

Solutions? I have decided each time I leave the trade overnight to move the TP to +20 pips. My statistics showed that usually overnight the price goes in profit on average 20 pips before it turns the direction.

Also, due to the specific money management approach which you can learn along with the Black Widow course, the loss was not big and I expect next week to go in profit again.

This is the summary of our trades with the ecs.LIVE channel group. Here is the table:

1 Nov 9 USD/CHF Sell 0.9125 0.50 Loss -40
2 Nov 9 EUR/CAD Long 1.533 0.50 Win 30
3 Nov 10 GOLD Short 1885 0.30 Win 50
4 Nov 10 GBP/NZD Short 1.9405 0.50 Win 33
5 Nov 11 GBP/NZD Short 1.941 0.30 Loss -50
6 Nov 11 GBP/NZD Long 1.9265 1.50 Loss -67
7 Nov 11 GBP/USD Long 1.3205 1.00 Loss -45
8 Nov 11 GBP/USD Long 1.3215 0.50 Loss -45
9 Nov 11 GBP/JPY Long 139.2 0.50 Loss -40
10 Nov 12 GBP/JPY Long 139 1.00 Loss -50
11 Nov 12 NZD/USD Long 0.6865 3.00 Loss -40
12 Nov 13 GBP/NZD Short 1.9265 2.00 Win 19
13 Nov 13 GBP/NZD Short 1.9288 1.00 Win 42

As you can see, 5 out of 13 trades are winners. Losses will always happen but it is our job as traders as me as the Head of Trading in Elite Currensea to cap it at the lowest possible level.

Here is the screenshot of the new Black Widow live account and you can follow it here.
