Anomaly noted on the new Darwin AUA

It seems that on the migrated part of the track record, it misses the first trade :open_mouth:

Error during the migration? Track-record ‘manufactured’?

I am interested for some time for the work of this author on mql5. His demo signals are on Darwinex demo accounts, his real account signals seem to be penny accounts by particularly exotic brokers, which seemed a little contradictory with asset management ambitions in millions of this author specializing in martingales.

Can source accounts be a penny account?

How to explain this line that is missing on the first order, I have never seen this before ?

I dare to hope that before specifically promoting the IPO of a Darwin resulting from a migration, the management of Darwinex has carried out particularly rigorous controls?

If I’m interested in this author is that its results are spectacular, including on Darwinex demo accounts. So I am very satisfied that Darwinex offers a Darwin of this author.

But I would like someone to explain to me the story of the first trade that is missing, and since this author publishes his accounts on MyFxBook and Mql5, I think that the link to the source account would be reassuring proof that everything is happening in the rules.

Or even better, that Darwinex confirms that a human audit by his specialists has taken place.

On migrated track records, Darwinex has to be extremely rigorous. Not only to protect investors, but by equity for traders who offer Darwins from Darwinex native track-records.

That is the reason it is always better to wait at least 6 months after a migration.
Also equity is a good indicator, if you don’t trust your strategy or the broker why should I trust your darwin?
Patience is the key, also investing darwins.

As far as i noticed this happens if there are Assets which are not here at Darwinex (e.g RUB pairs). But all others must be 95% of the trades and profit.

According to my observations, if the brokers of the real accounts are exotic, the pairs used are not.

And even if it was missing an instrument, it would be curious that it is always the first trade that is concerned?

It’s only shown if the missing pairs are on the first trades, I don’t know the sort sequence of Darwinex there. If it were the last trades, it would not be shown, I fear.

I still insist that the pairs should be named, because you don’t know whether it were futures not listed here or currency pairs.

To list the broker before migration also as requested months ago could also help.

[/quote] @Medialux Thank you for pointing out this fact to our attention!
I will come back on weekdays with more informations and try to clarify the question :wink:

[/quote] For sure you’ve noticed that we indeed take this topic very seriously

Dear @Medialux :slight_smile:
You are the first to say (wisely) that Darwinex traders are not asset managers, but Darwinex is.
Strategies are packaged into impersonal assets (DARWINs), that are not related anymore to the trader, but to Darwinex.

And nothing more about facts (D-Score, investors, etc…) no promises or specific promotion. But maybe we can turn the sentence differently, indeed.

But, is it a promotional call to say (?)

“this week on the EUREX, a new Indice was listed wich is called MDAX. It trades today at xxxxx [quote] with a trading volume of xxxx [EUR], and it is rated BBB.”

I guess no, or every Bloomberg and CNBC journalists may have to get an asset management and Financial advisor license :wink:

But I don’t find a pair there which is not available at Darwinex. So the black first position continues staying in the dark.

Edit: As the most exotic pair traded is XAUUSD, I must assume that there is a certain probability that Darwinex had an error here taking the account mix before migration to the history of this Darwin.

The broker used is known to offer accounts in cents which the fact that it is in cents is not visible.

But hey, after all we see Darwins with an account connected to $ 20 .–, so that’s not a huge problem.

There remains the question of the missing line. I really do not see any instruments incompatible with those of Darwinex.

A small part of the performance is missing in the migrated version of the account.

I also wonder why in my screenshot 2 days ago in the link of @easyFX were 3 positions missing and today there is only one black “line”.

Please also ask for an explanation for this miracle.

This kind of reminded me about this:

make sure to read at least the last part :joy:

Somehow i think for migrating there should be some more serious track records with at least some more Trader equity at all. The reason? “Survivorship bias farming”

Say that with the experience of many ‘migrated’ that we were presented as the messiah and who did not concretize the hopes, the best is to give them time to prove themselves.

Welcome with the brass band a martinagle migrated from an cent account, I know traders of the old school who will not scream for joy :sweat_smile:

But … a very sexy martingale, it must be said. And if I looked at this Darwin closely it’s that I’m interested.

Since I am on the analysis of AUA, it is very visible that the trader has migrated a nice account as ‘support’ but that since the migration is no longer the same strategy is used.

VaR has more than doubled in a few days.

And already almost 100 k. AUM.

Averaging down is not the same as martingale, and with the number of pairs traded it is possible that the trader is averaging down, for example a maximum of 3 postitions per pair. The difference is a strict limitation of open positions.
As long as you don’t have a completely straight intraday trend with no rebounds, it helps to bring the breakpoint where you are even down to the market price. But also a martingale strategy could look successful in a swinging market. :worried:
So I’m not sure which strategy is running at this Darwin - martingale or averaging down.

correct my friend… :scream:
but i will take a closer look, because it takes more or less the same nº of strategies i have used to create my system… (LOL)

For each trading system, we create a base of several million to several trillions of different strategies.

A small screenshot of open USDCAD trades …

In the history it goes up to 0.16 lots.

Ok, it’s a less brutal progression than a pure 1-2-4-8-16 martingale …

There is no way to know the date of a Darwin’s IPO, or am I wrong?
