The market has not been favourable for SFE Price Action in the past 2-3 years, but that does not meant the system no longer has an edge. The main focus is to keep the losses small during unfavourable times, and maximise the gains when the market eventually becomes favourable again.
If you always optimise the EA only to how the market has been for the past few months, then once the market changes behaviour you will lose the edge and blow the account. The core of the system is based on price actions that have a long term edge over the market, which is demonstrated over many years of trading.
The way our system trades is the right way to trade Forex, which will last the distance. Let's see how many systems will still be alive in a few more years' time, and whether I am delusional or not. 😄
