EURUSD Day Trading Strategy Review For March: +76R Potential, Minus Commissions

This is how the EURUSD day trading strategies I use performed during the month of March. I only trade for approximately two hours each day, so these results are for the period between roughly 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. EST, during the London and New York overlap period. I trade using a one-minute chart.

The results are broken down based on the potential for each strategy. Executing every trade perfectly is not an easy task, so actual trading results will typically be lower. The goal is to continually progress and trade the strategies as well as possible. Once we are trading a strategy very well, then more strategies can be added to the trading plan to further boost returns.

I use a 2.5:1 reward to risk on every trade. I exit early for high-impact news announcements or if another valid signal develops in the opposite direction while I am in a trade. I also may exit early if it is pre-planned before the trade because of certain market conditions.
