Cool bro! Keep up with this profit in Feb!And now the first month as Darwin is over with these results:

I'm satisfied that I could close January with profit.
After hard fights on Wednesday and Thursday last week, the metrics now got typical or realistic values.
All I wanted on Wednesday was to get the investor account also on a new ATH because it was missing 0,3 % while the trading account had a new ATH, now it is missing 1.6 % .
The DD is blamed by an exploding VaR - I'm curious, how long it will take to get it back below 10.
On the other hand these "damaged" metrics give me the freedom to trade better - not regarding any optimizations or rules for improvement anymore.
Trading for fun and the trading account first - Darwinex metrics second.
DarwinIA will come anytime if the D-Score is greater 40.
I don't think it is impossible to automate your trading strategy and to create an EA.The current handicap of this strategy are:
- time effort to control open positions
- cannot be automated because of using different time frames and "fuzzy" signals
But that would mean that I had to disclose my full knowledge about the strategy.I thought so too, 5 months ago......, but some of the guys on the Mql5.com platform can develop just about anything you can think of for your EA, and for as little as $30.
You could do it partially, but not fully.The "fuzzy" signals you can adjust that 2 requirements (or 3) need to be met, for it not to be that fuzzy.
To a degree yes, but you can formulate it so only you know the true settings that work. You should have them develop it so all the parameters are adjustable. (Timeframes, K-Values, D-Values, X-Values, Y-value, Time periods etc)But that would mean that I had to discclose my full knowledge about the strategy.
There are rule based setups in my trading which could be improved by an EA as I don't look into the screen the whole day to find the best entry point.
You could do it partially, but not fully.
The key is my discipline which cannot be solved by rules.
Do you know what the toughest challenges are for my discipline since end of January when I decided to trade only for the results without regarding the metrics? To decide not to trade in a situation where I see chances. That happens more than once per week. But not to trade is always better than a losing trade.
And I want to say thank you to my early investors, I am really impressed by their confidence in my young Darwin.
Your equity curve is almost 45 degree uptrend and right after a big loss, a big win recover all. It makes me think right away to grid trading.My Darwin ILR closed February 2021 without a losing day and more than 10% profit:

On the detailed view (4H) you can get an impression about the trading sessions:

Yesterday was the only hard fighting day in February and the only one with a higher intraday drawdown.
As I wrote on January 29th, I focus on trading and not on the metrics since end of January and the results confirm that it could be the right way.
Currently the Darwin shows a rotten Rs attribute. The reason is the increase in the trade size on the trading account which is reduced for the Darwin and investors related the VaR. The Rs attribute should recover in March out of the red into the orange area.
It cannot be grid trading (which also implies hedging) as the trading account and the Darwin are flat between the trading sessions.Your equity curve is almost 45 degree uptrend and right after a big loss, a big win recover all. It makes me think right away to grid trading.
I'm quite sure that you are using one kind of them.
Is it OK to manage the risk?
Thank you for your congratulation.Congrats on a superb February return. Looked to see where ILR was in Darwinia, but alas, not there.
Further investigation found ILR is disqualified due to correlation with Darwin VAW. The equity curves are not even similar.
As I wrote on January 19th here, I'm happy with 1-2 % return every month - without exception.What is you expected annualized return and expected max DD ?
