Hi Investors in general and particular in PGH,
For professional reasons, I had few time available last times … and will be very limited until end of July (holidays included …:smile:), many happens here…. Few notes:
PGH since 8/05 performance is more than miserable! Exactly when it supposed to have a “good” one… sorry all, I’m so said (as all my investors), because I’m also losing on my accounts….

Unfortunately all is normal, markets also win…. (They normally win much more times than traders…) the only “good” point for me on this is “see” significant changes from my investors, that although this poor performance, in general add keep their investments…. traders need some times to “protect” profits and reduce risk ( in my case now a days automatically…) not the case of Darwins… ( i still have hope that Darwinex will be “forced” to change this…)

I feel said see some investor’s give-up ( at least some that post here their portfolios, as other we do not know…) I will use one example from one of my investors to tell my opinion on a point, every investors should have a goal before invest….(again…)

I invest generally (in my accounts…) on civil year basis, in this terms, imagine I have 10k to invest, I keep 9k in a bank to a +1,5% and invest 1k in forex. If keep all 10k on bank at end of year I will have won 150$. With that 1k I admit to lose maximum 40% and fight to win 60%.
If I lose those 40% I will have in my account +135$ + 9000$+ 600$ = 9735$ (instead of winning for sure 150$ I risk to lose 265$ (- 2,65%). If I win 60% I will have +135$ + 9000$+1000$+600$ = 10735$ (+ 7,35%) this is what I call return above average with minimum possible risk ( and my numbers have been above 2 digits profit for considerable years)…. I normally made this with more money and calculate with what I have available for 3 years cycle, but same “rules”… so invest in “me” for 1M,3M are perfectly random, could be good or bad….
Taking this in consideration invest in PGH during 8M and winning 22% is very good, what I not recommend for an investor on a trader like me ( 100% dependent and “on” markets… and trading for average yearly returns…) is increasing the investment 350% and closing it in 2M losing 9% ( more money than have been wining in 8M).
Normally very few traders in forex win money consistently, and with appropriate risk, with modesty, I can tell you that have this performance is not easy unless you increase significantly the risk… in something very, very danger that is forex… with this just to call attention (once again…) if your goals are for 1M, 3M , 6M most wisely decision is not to invest in PGH, (and recommend to think very well before you do it, if the risk you are taking worth it…)
Darwinex IA, “blog” posts, filters, etc… is much better now, congratulations… (My example D-Score from 70 to 50 in 1 month with same risk… dependent mainly on performance as it should!… ) Much “better”, in what real matters, information for investors decisions …


on PGH “benchmarks” 4 of 5 clear doing much better … (yes i still keep a eye on it…)
All the best,
OldSchool
PS: of course will keep fight as always for those 2 digits also in 2018 (LOL) :+1:

Hi there,
very nice “improvements” (several!) from Darwinex last times, in my opinion, congratulations!
awesome to “see” / analyse / etc!

although a very miserable first semester on 2018, one of worsts ever! (for me as trader… and for my investors), special because it is worst then first semester of 2017 what makes me very sad, and sincerely i do not expect… but it’s the game at is hardest times ( for me…).
hope i can do much better in second semester and that this fantastic investors on PGH want to keep their investment at least until the end of the year …


many thanks all and congratulations for all Darwinex team for the good work they are doing for alll…

Hi there,
just to share a picture, maybe someone have not notice it…
normally the first half of the year has amplitudes greater than the second (picture of EURGBP as a reference example in my system …) with the political conditions in Europe, Brexit, etc, did not expect at all such a small amplitude on 2018, on the contrary expected “violent” fluctuations … reason to question what will be the rest of the year … my system needs “action” (LOL), we will see what happens …

good I’m glad. the markets have been difficult to launch positive deals … many sudden changes due to Trump tweets … (LOL), and the system is forced to reverse many negative trades … but one little bird tell-me that “something” important that will change last months behavior will happen soon…

hi,
taking in consideration my post CavaliereVerde's live portfolio i received one email from one darwinex “investor” asking me what i consider essential in a trader or investor… not easy… i have answer him with words from something i read in 2009… ( not a very good site like many others, and long time ago… LOL) but this simple words means all and is all that maters to be successful trader and/or investor ( of course that what successful is also different for any of us…) i decide to let that words here… maybe they can be useful for someone… and for sure, with any strategies if you put them to work you will archive your “successful…”

Simple and true, but so very difficult to achieve in practice. Variance kills most traders

After watching the correlation between volatility and the Darwin returns, wouldn’t be better to trade that Darwin’s strategy only when the moving average of the volatility is rising? In this way you’ll do less trades but the darwin will be more profitable, I guess.
