This is Gonzalo, the real name behind the darwin BIL
Before describing BIL, I´m going to talk a little bit about me, so the investors can see who I am.
I am a 55 years old man, originally from Spain, but I have lived in several countries, some times leading a company, other times managing my own businesses.
How did I get here? Several years ago I started developing hearing loss and my executive world started to fall down. I had problems to understand by phone, and then in meetings, and even face to face if the environment was noisy…hearing aids didn´t make a difference in my kind of hearing loss…so what could I do?
So, about ten years ago I became interested to start some business online, because I din´t need to talk people, and I did so, but one day somebody mentioned Forex (I wasn´t ever interested on stock market, but Forex caught my attention).
For several reasons I didn´t start it on that time, but three years ago I realized an acquaintance was Forex trader and a coach. So, I decided to pay him for a semi-private Forex class…and the rest is history.
Like most of traders, I have had ups and downs during this trip, and I´ve learned from my own experiences and mistakes while developing my personal strategy. In the begining I enjoyed to trade and at the same time I also suffered it, then I learned just to do it, trust my strategy and I don´t suffer anymore.
Another thing I have learned (and it is very important), it is that you need a plenty personal life, so you are not stressed and then trade with pleasure. Fortunately, I have a well balanced and plenty life together with a wonderful wife. I know I am lucky and I am very thankful for it.
I love to make money, but it is not the main reason I am here, for me this business is a personal achievement and it gives me more rewards than only the money. Also I want to make my investors happy, I want to make money for other people, that´ll be fantastic!
I know I´ll have private investors at any time from now on, just when they trust me to handle their money, so I´ll be here for them, that´s my dream and I am pursuing it.
And now let´s talk about BIL, and the reason I am presenting it today.
BIL has crushed the first big goal…50 at D-Score! (I know D-Score means nothing for some investors, but let´s say a high D-Score means the darwin is doing good, it is more investable on long term and it has usually good performance too).
The underlying strategy of BIL is operated on price action basis. I´ve been polishing my strategy during these years until it was ready to fight the market.
The strategy is manually operated, but I made it like a robot with feelings.
Of course, I have the sense of the market, but at the same time I have learned how important is setting rules, limits and controls to make sure it works at any time and market conditions (and it is working like I wanted…so proud of me…lol). So, I am a sergeant about these rules because they made my strategy more steady and stronger. I understood when you are a manual traders you need strong rules to be succesful, so I do it every single day.
I ´ve recently reduced the VAR from 30%-35% to 10%-15% (this is the reason my Rs has temporarily lowered). The strategy was working great, but some investors prefer lower VAR (risk), so I just did it thinking of them.
I am ready for you investor!
See you along the way!
