Hello Darwinex community,
I want to introduce my Darwin, SKI.
I am a macro, discretionary investor with over 20+ years experience of trading equities, commodities, forex and interest rates. I am based in Jersey (Channel Islands) and my Darwin SKI is based around my global macro outlook as well as the politics of the UK, US and Euro area.
Whilst I have day-traded with limited success over the years, I have concentrated in the last few years only on medium/long term economic and politics. Leaving day-trading behind I have earned my greatest profits from predicting the political outcomes in the UK and US since 2016.
The current instruments traded within SKI to express my views are forex and commodities. I would trade interest rates if they were available in Darwinex.
I will always try and reserve my entry into macro trades only when I think the market is coming around to my outlook. I do not fight against price trend/momentum. For both political and central bank trades, I tend to look ahead to potential catalysts and enter ahead of the event if I believe the market has the outcome priced wrong.
You will see my Darwin is only just over 10 months old at this stage which is young for macro investing. Any investment should be considered for a period of at least 6 months. My experience attribute score is low due to a low volume of trades and market correlation is low due my macro view remaining unchanged. There will however be new opportunities to trade GBP around the new Tory leader, ahead of a potential general election and Brexit developments over 2019. Potenrial USD trades will be around a signal of a major change in policy by the Fed. I am also looking ahead to events in Italy and data from Germany and China.
As an upside to macro investing, you will see the capacity and divergence are very good. The average winning trade is currently 185pips (see Assets page). This means you need not be concerned you will not get the returns shown here. Current capacity is over $500m.
I look forward to answering any questions and hope you find SKI Darwin of interest.
