Overall though the strategy description is fairly vague and first thing to note is that so far New LEXUS Week EURJPY has only traded the EURJPY pair. This ZuluTrade signal provider also doesn’t mention anything about the maximum stop level or number of open trades suggested to follow their system.
However, so far a maximum of only 2 trades have been opened at the same time. New LEXUS Week EURJPY also seems to clearly apply stop levels. While the maximum stop level isn’t know, the worst trade was stopped out at -171 pips and other trades were stopped out around the -160 level. Profits on the other hand are left to run with the best trade so far returning 381 pips. An average return of 23 pips per trade is a very healthy number on ZuluTrade.
In summary, New LEXUS Week EURJPY has so far overall returned some reasonable results with a fairly low risk strategy (using only maximum 2 open trades and clear stops). However, with their strategy, account drawdown has to be taken into account as well as a longer term view, since there have been periods of 3 to 4 months when no additional profits were made. They also don’t risk their own money.
