Weekly Update 8/26/12: Live Trading AUD/NZD with the Arb Trader Application & Update on New Features

I’m running a little behind on publishing the results of last week’s trading.  AUD/NZD had another rough week this week with a loss of nearly 95 ticks.  USD/SGD and HKD/JPY both had small losses for the week and will be dropped from trading beginning this week.  EUR/DKK had another great week with a gain of 36.7 ticks.

This week’s number are below. All results include commission.

Update on Progress of the Arb Trader Application

Currency Strategy

This week I will be working on the following bug fixes

  • . USD/SGD and HKY/JPY will be dropped from trading
  • I will begin work with revamping the user interface for this strategy which will include adding some JavaFX components including real-time charts.
  • Look at implementing an equity curve filter so that when the system encounters a large string of losses the system will be switched off until the equity curve reestablishes an upward climb.
