November review of Alfa-Forex investment accounts
Fresh investment accounts are scarce in our overviews, however this time the manager was able to spark interest despite the low position in the ratings.
So what is the reason? The main account’s advantage is the massive manager’s capital. While the total funds make up $91 000, $85 000 belong to the account owner, which is a critical factor for risk limitation. We may assume that the trader will handle the account with care to protect his own share. It is necessary to point out investment conditions as well – Cash&Carry takes only 25% as remuneration from profit.
The total investment return from October 19 (when the account was created) exceeded 11%. If we consider the statistics, the manager is waiting for the most suitable moment to enter market: since day one he has closed as little as 11 deals. Despite 4 of them have a negative financial result the total profit equals $4000 against $600 of the total loss. We may suggest that the trader doesn’t “sit out” drawdowns. Though the deposit load once reached 15%, the maximum drawdown did not surpass 1.5%.
We recommend monitoring the account for 1-2 weeks and considering the opportunity of long-term investment.
A popular investment account group, which follows the trading system by P. Kasparov. According to the system creator, half the battle in trading is to learn from a person who sees into market.
Traders have already opened 20 accounts each of which complies with the same algorithm. Three fintechnology accounts have already exceeded $50 000, the total funds on one of them are above $120 000. The strategy is based on a portfolio of 9 currency pairs, trading is conducted 24/5. Deals are opened as soon as pending orders are triggered and monitored and closed automatically.
October 7 the oldest account fintechnology 1 showed a drawdown due to an unexpected British pound drop, lasting 2 minutes. However the expert adviser continues operating. Taking into consideration the maximum drawdown of 3-5%, we expect the account to come back to former rate of return levels. Smooth and steady reaction to sudden market fluctuations gives additional scores to the fintechnology group.
The accounts may be recommended for long-term invested.
INSIGHT regular USD and INSIGHT moderate RUR
These investment accounts have become an important part of the Alfa-Forex ratings top, owing to stability and reliability. The sum under management over $2 500 000 is a strong argument in favor of the accounts. Commitment to long-term results is the thing, which investors value the most in algorithmic trading conducted by the INSIGHT team.
If one represents an account as a social unit, INSIGHT will be akin to a strong-knit happy family for investors. No drops and soars – trading is regular, even and effective. The accounts are marked with tens of algorithms, hundreds of deals per month, minimum volumes per deal, minimum drawdowns and sustainable return growth. No wonder they gathered many adepts and followers.
In October the accounts confirmed their good record: 867 deals on INSIGHT regular USD allowed finishing the months with the profit of 3.26%, while INSIGHT moderate RUR gained 2.53%.
INSIGHT regular USD and INSIGHT moderate RUR may be recommended both for mid-term and long-term investment.
A legendary account from a no less then legendary manger remains the largest account in the company, leading by total funds volume both in dollars and rubles.
Despite loss after the referendum concerning Brexit, most investors still rely on the account. Especially that the manager gives a promise to focus more on risk limitation and sustainability to earn trust back.
Unfortunately, since September the rate of return have not changed significantly. The probable reason is that the manager tries to optimize the strategy, which was revised during a long pause in trading. In spite of the deposit load up to 20-30% the drawdown in the course of a couple of month did not surpass 0.6%. There is reason to believe that the trader will not repeat the mistake of June 24 after the critical news about Brexit was announced. In that case investors may account for moderate return with minimum risks.
The account may be considered for long-term investment.
Dragon Treasures (Сокровища Дракона)
The Dragon Treasures account has come back to the ranks and continues surprising investors. Owing to confident trading and manager’s openness the account gathered over 30 million rubles.
Trading engages “majors”, the account owner enters market once a week at the beginning of a trading section if signal is strong enough. Thus, one may invest Dragon treasures on week-end and transfer funds to another account after the Monday profit is locked.
At the moment the trader tries to make up for the drawdown of July 17 and he is close to the goal. However the trading is conducted with the deposit load of 100%. That is why it is recommended to deposit to the account no more than 10-15% from the total funds to be invested.
The account is suitable for short-term investment.
