Dear Darwinex Community and Investors,
Let me introduce myself and my DARWIN IDT – the “i-DayTrader”.
I’m an experienced full time algo trader working independently for asset management companies. The only social trading platform I use to share my systems is Darwinex. You can find my strategies also on other popular sites but can’t copy my trading from there. The reason for this is simple: No other social trading platform apart from Darwinex really protects a trader’s intellectual property. Furthermore Darwinex offers its unique risk engine that is able to significantly improve the performance of many strategies in terms of reward to risk.
IDT (update on 1st of November 2019) is an automated but human controlled trading system running on some major pairs and their respective crosses. The basic idea behind IDT is to mix different strategies for getting a diversified portfolio with low correlation. Breakouts as well as counter trend, ranging and trend following techniques are utilized with low leverage and protections around rollover or in context of high impact news events. The holding time averagely is about 2 days but sometimes only a few minutes up to a week - depending on volatility. Every trade ist secured with a SL (stop loss) and no averaging, grid or martingal approaches etc. are used.
The respective EAs for MT4 were developed with big OOS time spans (out of sample validation of the performance) and hard stress tests to ensure a high potential for future profitabilty. Nevertheless backtests are no guarantee for any yields, you should only invest money you can afford to lose.
I invite you all to share your thoughts and ask questions (if any).
Best of luck,
