Great month ! Just realized you were trading the Dax. Sweet
Wondering what would have been your capacity score (at the moment at 1.4) if the Dax CFD had been maintained as mini instead of micro lot. Given that you’re daytrading, your average trade duration must have little impact on the capacity.
Anyway, now your scalability is very much grounded. I believe it would be at least double the capacity or more back on the old mini contract, given the LMAX liquidity against contract size.
Also the spread of the micro lot is now 0.2 points higher than the one of the mini.
If we’re considering you make about 5 trades per day roughly, with an avg, 29.31% winning trades, avg win 27.62 points, avg loss 10.11 points, this equals to an avg trade of +0.94 points.
So, trading with the mini contract instead may have yeldied you just above +20% performance more ! (and slightly less drawdown)
Consequently, the switch of Darwinex from the mini to micro contract do have some consequences. Preferably, it would be best to have the 2 contracts available to choose from, if the behind the scenes follow
Really like your darwin and I would like to be a future investor but I am worried about your very bad dvergence, it does not make any sense with such a low AUM .
What is the explaination from Darwinex guys?
