You should (and hope) start to see so DAX traders (my case, too), more and more, as Darwinex now allows DARWIN based on DAX .
While I use such benchmarks for my own purposes, by experience, anyone knows that such benchmarks comparisons need to be compounded / worth what they worth.
To argument it quickly : by definition, such comparison is biased, as official indices performance is based on long / hold only. We could perhaps even debate about the relevance of such official benchmarks comparisons over the next years, but I'm going a bit too far ... In a certain way, I think about last @SATFX reply or merely the Darwinex Attribute Mc.
Let me dare to say that any individual trader could easily beat last year DAX benchmark !
Suppose you understood my point.
@EvidenceAlpha points one of the bias details I refer to :
How many biased benchmarks I saw these last years where some unscrupulous traders convinced investors by comparing their performance to.... Gold....
Nevertheless, I found the idea interesting :). As an example, there's a trader waiting to get DARWINs actions-based to start his trading here : meanwhile, we publishes his trading journal, using benchmark comparisons :
