Remember what I said before I left? That's right, my systems would perform out of their skin....
In the 10 trading days I missed, the London open method would have realised a profit of 24.94%.Ignored
I have been following your London open trades every day since you started and my results have always been the same as yours within a pip or two. I continued to follow your system while you were away and from Oct 21 - Nov 04 the results were actually a loss of approx 3% (based on 25 pips = 1%).
I believe the different results is due to the time change from summer time to standard time. Europe made the 1 hour time change on Oct 25 but North America did not make the change until Nov 01. I'm not sure if your data feed for your charts is based on US time or not, but when you look back at your charts for that week, I believe your backtesting results may be based on entering at the Frankfurt open rather than the London open. The data on my charts is based on North American time and when I was following your strategy live during that week I had to shift one hour to compensate for the one hour difference. If I had gone away during that time and came back this week and looked at my charts without taking that one hour difference into consideration from Oct 26 - Oct 30, I would have also calculated the huge profit that you stated.
The good news is that you had a good holiday and actually saved money by not trading those 2 weeks!
