The post Trading Divergences with DuettoFX describes a special way to trade DuettoFX manually. The trick is spotting divergences between price action and DuettoFX’s spread.

The post Risk Averse Approach to DuettoFX Trading describes a modification of the DuettoFX “basic strategy” introduced in previous posts. Adding a simple dynamic SL and TP to each trade (1:1 risk:reward) smooths considerably the equity lines of some pairs (EURUSD, AUDUSD, and USDCAD).
The post One Leg Trading With DuettoFX explains how to trade only one of the two pairs involved in a “duetto” (e.g. only USDCHF in the duetto GBPUSD vs USDCHF) based on the historical profit factor of our backtests. This approach can easily improve by 10% the overall profit factor, thus reducing trading risks.
