My performance on Majors vs Crosses

I've just notched 104 trades now, and spent tonight going through my trading history. I'm always looking at ways of improving the quality of my trades, and checked to see how I performed trading the major pairs (EURUSD, GBPUSD etc) versus the crosses and exotics. 

Performance of the Majors
Number of trades: 22
Profit factor: 1.79

Performance of the Crosses and Exotics
Number of trades: 82
Profit factor: 1.03

I also looked at my performance on JPY and non-JPY crosses.

Performance of JPY Crosses
Number of trades: 20
Profit factor: 1.35

Performance of non-JPY Crosses
Number of trades: 62
Profit factor: 0.92

Combining the results of the majors and JPY crosses...

Performance of Majors and JPY Crosses
Number of trades: 42
Profit factor: 1.55

Basically, my trades on non-JPY crosses and exotics have held me down. 

So where to from here?

I'm still deciding whether to drop more pairs. I've already dropped the exotics due to widely-fluctuating spreads and gaps. After over 100 trades, it appears I have a good edge trading the majors and JPY crosses. 

Interesting results. And this is why it's important to keep a trading journal. :)
