Dear @OldSchoolPT ,
yesterday when I got your notification we were talking internally exactly regarding the AUM our Darwin is managing since the beginning of 2018, were you reading our minds? eh-eh
Seriously speaking, We've greatly appreciated your consideration, it comes from a person who knows markets, therefore understands performance behind systems and in particular way their value during some market phases, so your compliments are more than gratifying for us, thanks again cause as you can see apart from your comment and that of a few belong, all is silent, probably because out of you there is no one who thinks the same way? IDK.
A fact is that the system seems truly capped around 70 Investors, it is something honestly we cannot explain, also cause we keep track of everything and I can confirm that first time we saw number 70 on Investors dates back not a few days ago, but to the March 21 2018.
A widget generated that day, confirms my words:
As actually we do not have a track of AUM's Evolution per single Darwin, here is it during some parts of previous months:
Red Dot represents the date in which we saw 70 investors for the first time, if you ask me I have various widgets with relative date saved which I used today to confirm numbers in the picture above. Other dates over the March 21 are not included.
Cause since I'm ordering for H.W.M. on Number of Investors, nothing has changed apart from little ups and downs between 65-75 Investors.
From the March 21 2018 here is RETURN/DD over the next period:
We always keep a low profile, we hate to make comparisons and also in this period we will avoid any sort of them, even though we are quite sorry about the fact that there is no evolution on the amount of investors. Although some things are very obscure to us, cause, excluded our system (which we have never defined as one of the best or one who deserved something more), several other Darwins are not considered in the right way, and sadly I speak not only of underestimation. The decision is up to the Investor but the common probably will not lose a second even to read this post. As per consequence of the evolution, with also our passion over the time we have adjusted our Weekly Updates including some of our thoughts tighten the most to make them more flowing, we were active in the community when possible trying to answer and tell about the system when was necessary not only for GTD, we had improved VaR stability in such a way as to favor investors without ever derailing from our initial thinking, we never stopped to smooth were possible VolcanoFX' strategies in order to improve the overall picture, cause we believe in this project.
That's all dear @OldSchoolPT , hope to have not annoyed you, some words to share also our thoughts on this matter, it was nice to know that you have these type of questions, another time thank you for your compliments. I do not know if the situation should ever improve in numbers, but we will not push saying that GTD should have a place among top invested, we do not like to say this because not necessary it will happen, we believe we are not the best and that there is always something to learn and improve, and for sure we will continue our path. We love things happen in a natural way if anything has to happen. I will have always the certainty of having few but excellent investors, people who believes in investments, which I know that now are still reading this post, I will avoid to place their names here, but my sincerest gratitude goes to them, I really wish the best for them.
PS: thank you @asder34 , hope you are enjoying the ride .
