Twitter vs NumberOne

“Breaking: Two Explosions in the White House and Barack Obama is injured.”, this is the tweet sent from the Associated Press today. The news, obviously, is fake and was written by an hacker that gained control of their Twitter account.

But, even if it was a fake news, it had a real effect on the market, with a big spike that could have tripped several EAs, let’s see what 1.5.2.1 did:
On SMFX I did not have a good result (breakeven with commissions), but on ILQ it did a wonderful job! After months of losses, finally I recovered everything, getting in the “green” zone again.
Correction: since ILQ doesn’t show commissions correctly, but just “withdraws” them, faking all the stats, I misinterpreted the results: today ended with a loss.
