Mind boggling in Trading Systems_xx
Math was never my strong point so perhaps someone can help with this. I'm always experimenting with forex related things and was reading about arbitrage. Anyway, for a bit of fun I used three instruments and set them away.... For example...

S gbpjpy
B gbpusd
B usdjpy

At 100 pips profit I had opposite pending orders set up to lock in the profit and found that it often makes money. Was it just luck? What is the math? ... It boggles my brain thinking about it.
very interesting to discuss but I use the analysis in Eurusd pair only because I will try to analyze it with just one pair

I didn't just use the triangle, each pair had an opposite pending order waiting as they made 100 pips, my assumption was that I had a lucky reversal but I can't visualize it.
in my opinion it's better I also like that sometimes I use pending orders with tp 100 pips

No, it's just a game really... I do the set up and normally when I check on it later it has locked in a profit. I don't know what dynamics are in play math wise, I have no idea whether there is any potential in it.
if what I see is indeed there is potential within it to analyze more deeply about this

such as hedging position, but it is a correlation of 1 pair with the other pair so there are some of the same movements and there are different movements, if the buy trend is gbpusd
usdjpy buy trend
then GBPJPY is very strong buy, maybe like this I mean

is this system still applicable in this market situation? I think the percentage is 50:50, but indeed this technique is usually used for hedging or being able to see a measure of the strength of the major currencies
