Hi to Everybody.
First sorry for my English because i speak Spanish. I will try my best to write properly so you can understand me. Feel free to ask me if you do not understand something.
ABOUT THIS THREAD.
I open this thread for various reasons:
To show my Darwin to potencial investors.
To communicate with my investors. Feel free to write here if you are an investor and want to tell me something.
And as a trading diary where i can express my feelings when i feel i need to so i can avoid bad behavioural habits i.e. when i am having a bad day and i need to cool down.
A LITTLE BACKGROUND ABOUT ME.
I am a 39 years old Spanish man. Since i was 18 i have been in the trading world although i have not been trading all these years. There has been periods of time where i have not traded at all.
I have traded shares, futures, options, warrants and of course Forex.
I have to admit that i have not won money trading. Also i must say that i have not lost huge amounts of money because i have traded small accounts, with little money. During all these years there is a pattern that always repeat: I am capable of win during a period of time ( i think i am good at reading charts) but when i have a loss my head goes crazy and i want to recoup the money i have lost. At this point i start doing bad things like trading with too much risk, do not executing my stoploss and things like that. Needless to say that i have broken many accounts during my trading life.
About two and a half years ago i discovered Darwinex. I liked the idea of compete against me and other traders (going up through the Darwinex levels, ameba, rookie, talented…) and also i liked the idea of manage investors´ money so that i could win big money with no need to have a huge trading account, so that way i had only to worry about growing little by little my trading account.
When i joined Darwinex i was determined to take it seriously in order to attract investors capilal. But easy to say and so diffucult to do.
Here in Darwinex i have done all the rookie errors… Trading with too much risk, don not execute my stop loss, being too greedy and so on…
About a year and a half ago i decided to star a blog (ganarcondarwinex.com) in order to tell everybody my journey with Darwinex and how i was fighting to become a better trader everyday.
Since then, i have blown many accounts here in Darwinex too, but something has changed… Every time i have blown an account i have striven to do it better next time. I have improved so much since then with much effort. Now i am trying to be a consistent trader and try not to go crazy when i have a loss. I think little by little i am achieving it.
I have had several Darwins here, you can see them in the closed darwins section of my profile.
Here is my DARWIN KPM
The strategy behind it is called KeepCalm.
It is a manual strategy only, with no EAs or algorithmic trading. Only manual trades.
It is based on technical analysis only.
I quote the Darwin description “The target of this strategy is to achieve an annual return of 25% to 35% with a low drawdown and never above 10%. Manual trading based on technical analysis”
KPM IPO was on 10th July 2017. It started really good, having great notes in Rs, Mc, Ra,Pf and La attributes.
Quickly i got the “on fire” filter. I had good % profit with a low drawdown.
I was able to get a 33% return in 3 months with only a 3.23% of drawdown. I traded really well, with no rush and with a Strategy Var of no more than 10%.
On 13th September i got my first investor. I will never forget that day
Since then i have had up to $29.000 in Aum.
MY HARDEST WEEK
This week has been the hardest i have had with KPM. Here is the chart:
Having so much investors in so little time has been really hard emotionally for me and i have payed for that.
This week i have been a bad trader, trying to recoup rapidly my Monday losses, and i feel so sorry for my investors.
SO NOW WHAT?
So from now on i have to reset and keep going as i have done until this week.
I will go little by little again and I will trade only when i see a good opportunity, as i have been doing until now without forcing my trades.
My Strategy Var has gone from 10% to 14%, and i want to lower it to 10% again.
My overall drawdown has gone from 3% to almost 10%. I hope this will be my biggest drawdown. I think still it is a good number for a good strategy.
My La attribute has gone from 8.6 to 7.7. I will work to get a highest number on that. For me La attribute is one of the most important in a strategy.
That´s all thank you for reading.
