I’m 37, from the UK, a husband and Dad to 5 Daughters (yes, I did say 5). I’ve built up 14 years of experience within the markets.
You name it, I've tried it.
I’ve probably made every fucking one.
“Nice story bro, but who cares Darren”?
Let me explain.
Technical analysis was my go to for years. Spending hours a day glued to the charts. Even Sundays - trying to ‘forecast’ and predict the future. It’s crazy when you think about it.
All that ‘forecasting’ and shit. It gets to you over a period of time - all these decisions each day take their toll. I stumbled across Algo Trading.
I was hooked.
You mean trades will open and close without me doing a thing - so I can do whatever the fuck I like?
Where do I sign!
Problem was, most of these EA’s / Bots were a pile of absolute dog shit. You know the ones, right? So I decided I’d create my own. Here’s the things wrong with most EA’s. Shit education. You don’t know what it’s doing.
How can you be confident in something you don’t have a clue about?
Running a random optimisation with poor due diligence and knowledge - will lead to an overfit EA that won’t work in the live market.
Happened to you I bet too?
I bet you’re nodding. It’s not your fault though. Their strategies stop working.
“EA’s don’t work all the time Darren, you’re talking shit”...
You’re right to a point. Losses happen on any strategy so define ‘not working’. I guess it’s also not running for the hills after the first loss like many of us have done before. This isn’t a magic unicorn strategy that will never have a losing day and will make you millions without you doing a thing.
F@#k me, that’d me nice.
Find me a strategy with no losses and I’ll walk down the high street stark bollock naked.
Having an EA that works only when the market ranges or trends can cause some serious drawdown at times.
When markets range on a trend strategy… you lose money.
When markets trend like f@#k on a ranging strategy… you’ll lose the shirt off your back too.
So this is where ours is different.
What if I said you can trade an account with numerous strategies all at the same time? Like the swiss army knife of automated trading and not the ‘one trick pony’ that stops working.
When markets are ranging - your ranging strategy is capitalising. When they’re not you might take a small loss.
But when they’re not - they’re trending, get me?
So then your trending strategy comes into play and helps you make some dough. All whilst you’re playing golf, on the loo or doing the school run. Sometimes markets can range and trend within your strategy - bloody wonderful. So whereas most EA’s can blow your account we pretty much trade like a manual trader does.
