The EURUSD backtest is very good as you can see in the charts above, but the other two pairs aren’t keeping up the same pace. The vendor mentioned that the standalone strategies for GBPUSD and USDCHF will not be profitable when the parameters aren’t updated based on the price action, which I understand will happen 3-4 times per year. Quote from the vendor regarding the two additional pairs (GBPUSD & USDCHF):

It is optional for the users to choose running these additional pairs. We do not recommend running these pairs for stand-alone trading using the recommended parameters.
