In this research, we will combine all nine(9) subsystems and apply the strategy to 7 major forex currency pairs. Majors are generally the most popular type of currency pair to trade.

The most traded forex pairs at Global Financial Engineering and Global Accountancy Institute.

*EUR/USD (euro/US dollar)
*GBP/USD (British pound/US dollar)

Let us track our trades for the Global Hybrid Forex Trading Strategy(GHFTS) and analyze them in order to create a  successful transition and operational excellence using the above currency pairs.

As at December 21, 2022, We have decided to use a Hard Stop Loss and an initial trailing stop given by one to 8 times the Daily Average True range(DATR) with a risk of 0.1 % to 0.8% per trade. We will also activate a normal trailing stop given by 12.5% of the initial risk. Our profit target is three times the initial risk.

Trading Risk Disclaimer

Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.

Futures trading involves the potential for a substantial risk of loss as well as substantial gains and is not suitable for every investor. The highly leveraged nature of futures trading means that small market movements will have a great impact on your trading account and this can work against you, leading to large losses, or can work for you, leading to large gains. If the market moves against you, you may sustain a total loss greater than the amount you deposited into your account.

You are responsible for all the risks and financial resources you use and for the chosen trading system. You should not engage in trading unless you fully understand the nature of the transactions you are entering into and the extent of your exposure to loss. If you do not fully understand these risks you must seek independent advice from your financial advisor. All trading strategies are used at your own risk. It is your responsibility to confirm and decide which trades to make. Trade only with risk capital; that is, trade with money that, if lost, will not adversely impact your lifestyle and your ability to meet your financial obligations.

What is the Profit Factor of a Trading System

The profit factor is defined as the gross profit divided by the gross loss (including commissions) for the entire trading period. This performance metric relates the amount of profit per unit of risk, with values greater than one indicating a profitable/tradable system. It is very important to track this matric to ensure that it does not fall below zero for a long period of time.

The profit factor is very easy to calculate. It is the ratio between gross profits and gross losses . If you analyze the advance performance matric for the Global Algorithmic Trading Software(GATS)-System #5 you will see that it has a profit factor of 2.17 for the period January 01, 2022 to January 31, 2022

A better way to set Stop Losses by Dr. Glen Brown

Your Stop Loss should be based on the Volatility Exposure(VE) of the financial instrument .

Volatility is the  rate at which the price of a financial instrument  increases or decreases for a given set of returns.

How do we measure Volatility of a financial instrument?

Volatility is measured by calculating the standard deviation of the annualized returns over a given period of time. This shows the range to which the price of a financial instrument may increase or decrease. Hence, Volatility measures the risk of a financial instrument.

Within the Global  Algorithmic Trading Software(GATS), We use Volatility to  indicate the pricing behavior of the financial instrument which help us to estimate the fluctuations that may happen within different timeframes.

We use the PATS Average True Range(ATR) indicator to set the stop loss and profit target for the various subsystems and strategies.

At Global Financial Engineering, we believe that your stop loss should be based on the number of Volatility Exposure Days (VEDs) or Volatility Exposure Periods (VEPs). 

For example:

**1 VED or 12VEPs is assigned to the based system which runs on the 1 minute chart where the default risk is set at 0.25% of free equity

**2 VEDs or 12VEPs is assigned to system #1 which runs on the 5 minutes chart, where the default risk is set at 0.5% of free equity

**3 VEDs or 12VEPs is assigned to system #2 which runs on the 15 minutes chart, where the default risk is set at 0.75% of free equity

**4 VEDs or 12VEPs is assigned to system #3 which runs on the 30 minutes chart, where the default risk is set at 1.00% of free equity

**5 VEDs or 12VEPs is assigned to system #4 which runs on the 60 minutes chart, where the default risk is set at 1.25% of free equity

**6 VEDs or 12VEPs is assigned to system #5 which runs on the 240 minutes chart, where the default risk is set at 1.5% of free equity

**7 VEDs or 12VEPs is assigned to system #6 which runs on the Daily chart, where the default risk is set at 1.75% of free equity

**8 VEDs or 12VEPs is assigned to system #7 which runs on the Weekly chart, where the default risk is set at 2.00% of free equity

**9 VEDs or 12VEPs is assigned to system #8 which runs on the Monthly chart, where the default risk is set at 2.00% of free equity

The Global Algorithmic Trading Software(GATS) will use the above inputs to calculate the position size of each financial instrument.
