Should trading system be stopped?

Post by oem7110 » Sun Mar 08, 2015 3:48 am

On last month USD/CHF drops more than 20%, if I trade on daily chart, most of indicators would be misleaded by this single bar.
For example, moving average for 20

Does anyone have any suggestions on whether I should stop following any signal from trading system or not?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Instead of abandoning the system try looking into indicators that better handle extreme moves.

In the meantime, take USDCHF out of your portfolio until (a) enough bars have passed to pacify your indicators, or (b) you implement gap-less indicators. There are plenty of currency pairs out there to trade. No one should be forcing you to trade the Swiss Franc.

Add the "distance" of the gap to all prices prior to the gap that fall within the moving window.
