Darwinex risk engine “normalizes” the risk of any DARWIN, that’s true. If the underlying strategy is very consistent and reasonable regarding the type of trading, sad engine’s “distortion” of the original system will only be very small. So if the respective trader varies the lot sizes e.g. depending on probabilities of specific trades to become profitable, this shouldn’t be a problem. The same applies to a portfolio of startegies e.g. including day- and swing trading. The intervention of the risk engine however will become stronger if the trader in rare cases utilizes unusal big lot sizes. Even if this may be profitable in the long run, the engine will consider this as exessive risk, no matter how big said position’s sizes are in absolut terms.
Darwinex’ risk engine however has issues if the underlying strategy abruptly changes or the trader makes a big withdrawal / deposit without adjusting the lot sizes he normally uses. Practically speaking the automated risk manager system improves the reward to risk of most DARWINs, some of them however are losing edge (more or less).
The more consistent the trading is, the better the risk engine can work…
Hope this helps!
