The Currency Index Signal Funds operate 24/5 and the results may be a bit puzzling.
Trading the Currency Index Signal Funds can be a bit confusing as the balances do not seem to align. However, they both actually are functioning in the fashion that they are intended, it is just that they are not going to behave as intuitively as one would expect.
USDL and USDS have opposite intentions as one is a U.S. Dollar Long Signal Fund and the other is a U.S. Dollar Short Signal Fund. USDL and USDS were formulated to have nearly the same distance between the Take Profit amount and Stop Loss amount. However, the spread has to be factored in and what happens is that the even distances result in a nearly a 1.5 to 1 Risk:Reward ratio as the Stop Loss is $735 and the Take Profit is $500 per basket entry.
The confusion comes with misalignment as far as timing and this creates a sort of inconsistency in terms of position profit/loss. The culprit here is actually volatility as the USDL and USDS Signal Funds during higher volatility times of the day will not necessarily counterbalance each other. However, they remain consistently opposed to each other.
There were initial bugs that presented themselves with the USDL and USDS Signal Funds that did not take place during the testing period. These bugs were fixed and now the Signal Funds function properly.
Your objectives as far as time frame is concerned will dictate how long you choose to subscribe to a Signal Fund, it could be one trading session, one day, one week or whatever you wish.
