Dear Darwinex Community,
I would like to introduce my HZU Darwin and a little bit of background about me and my strategy.
For the last 15 years I have been involved in financial markets (private investor / financial analyst / portfolio manager) but never really day traded in currency markets until last year January. I do understand all the risks and know poor statistics for the retail customers, so my expectations was fairly limited. However, I succeeded to survive my first year and the result very well exceeded my own expectations (https://www.mql5.com/en/signals/531563):
I am fully manual trader. Trading strategy is based on correlation analysis, pattern recognition and private set of technical analysis indicators. I have experience (7years) in professional technical analysis company, so this tool is my primary gun. I trade main currency pairs plus some commodities (gold/silver/oil) and Dax30. No martingale, no grid. My goal is stable growth, this could be 10%, 20% or even more per annum with fairly limited drawdown (-10%). Each month I start from scratch and trying to be more conservative at the beginning until I have accumulated some gains.
From what I experienced, trading in FX markets is mentally very hard job, but from the other hand it could be very well rewarded. Then I started I was fully blinded by high hit ratio until I found Darwinex. Here it means almost nothing and other parameters are more important. I found it suitable for me to track my trading characteristics because I want to state it clearly what despite nice returns last year I wasn’t happy about my trading except last week which was profitable and comfortable at the same time and I would like to set it as my own benchmark the way of trading:
My investible attributes clearly show my strengths and weaknesses – high market correlation, risk adjustment, closing strategy and performance measurements, but very weak loss aversion. This year I will be seeking to improve this key characteristic (La):
I do have few followers on mql5, which I think is already a huge success for me considering I am trading only a year. I know how it is important to know the person on the strategy behind, so here I feel it’s about time to introduce myself. I feel that I am in the right place here which will help me to growth as a trader and reach my objectives in the future ahead.
