US Dollar (DX) – Nightly Algo Report AMA Screenshot:

Since the beginning of the year, the U.S Dollar Index has been locking in some large profitable trades, while keeping losses to a minimum. The biggest move caught by the Algo was from Feb 6 – Feb 21. This move locked in just over $1,000 in profit, if trading one contract. As of this writing, there is an existing short position that took was triggered on Feb 28, and a trailing stop has been implemented. Winning trades, visually represented by the green boxes are much larger (on average) than the much smaller and less frequent losing trades, which are visually represented by red boxes. Action items (the trade entry signal, initial fixed stop size, trade maintenance (when and if to change to a trailing stop, and how big that stop should be), and the trade exit signal can all be seen on the charts, as well as in our nightly summary PDF report.

Sentiment positioning can also be visualized every night by Premium Plan subscribers.  Our Sentiment Conditions template includes Commercials as a percent of open interest, Commercials 6-month lookback (how Commercials are currently positioned in relation to their most bullish and bearish positioning within the last 6 months), and the current percentage of Retail traders that are currently bullish (DSI). Our momentum algo automatically ignores momentum trade signals if current sentiment levels are are beyond backtested and optimized extreme sentiment threshold levels.  In this example, if over 90% of retail traders are currently bullish, the algo will refuse to take a new momentum buy signal.   The threshold level is determined by backtesting on each contract.  Details are displayed on the chart.
