[Jan 15, 2021] Updated money management to protect all realized profit. Apply 1:1 R/R.
Yeah!
After 2 weeks of consideration, I made final decision as above comment, in details:
1. Applying fix 1:1 Risk/Reward for each trade when I detect a good setup.
2. Try to protect all profit by applying trailing stop. ( lots of profit thrown way in December and in the end with loss, it made me think a lots about the trade-off).

As far as I remember it was a stop and reverse strategy.
RR 1 and trailing is completely different, have you backtested it in the same way as the former ruleset?

You're very sharp when evaluating something relating to trading. ^^
Yes, comparing to original rule set. 2 above changes is the major.
About the setup to detect trend is still kept similarly. I still hunt for a trend to entry. Just now, I want to protect all profit (a trade-off is sometime, I can miss a big trend. But with some fake trend, I can be protected).
The past 2 weeks, I spent time to manual backtest to confirm/evaluate the behavior of the changes.
After next 2 month, I expect the Var of underlying will be lower than a half of current one (current ~23%).

For example CVL has a SAR logic , pretty clear if you look to trading journal.
LSC has TSL and TP .
Nothing is right or wrong per se, in my case setups and timeframes are different too.
Both strategies are backtested on more than 5 years.

The first time I read about cicle of doom it was by you.
Do not sell low a profitable strategy... ;)

Thank you so much for your advice!
About circle of doom, I'm aware of it.
That's why I have to consider much and take 2 weeks to check what I will trade-off.
After the change, I do not expect to get profit immediately. I just want to see more balance between win streak and loss streak.
The original method made big profit in some period ( from Apr to Sep), but losing the same in some other period (Oct to Dec). And the fluctuating amount is quite large. It might scare a lot of investors and even me. (the one who backtested it and known its return ~20% the last 3 years with 15-20% max DD).
Sometimes, we have to decide what is "patience and what is "stubborn".
And this case, I choose to change. ^^

[FEB 2021 REPORT]

Let's summarize/review KSX stats in Feb 2021


SUMMARY:
  • Discipline and consistency in trading: OK. Still hunting for a trend and enter with RR 1:1.
  • Profitable in trading: Green month come back (1.1%)
  • Only 6 trades done in Feb but they are high quality entry and stable risk management. Trading is not my fulltime job, so I often miss some good entry.

As far as I remember your trading is fully automated... 🤨
No for KSX. It's manual entry by me and managed exit by my EA.
PSX is fully automated one. I just closed it and restart a new one with same trading breakout method of GU. (I want to have a nice equity/profile too, with low DD, ^^)

Hello all,

Just to share!
I have stopped trading at Darwinex since April.
Because, I am aware of another way to make money faster and larger than trying to build solid tracking record at DW for years and wait for an AuM from DarwinIA with only 15% profit share.

It is working with prop firms, I mean high reputation prop firms such as FTMO, MyForexFund ...

So far, I am trading 300k$ at MFF (rapid model, 12% biweekly payout) and already make ~2k$ in just 4 month (from April to Jul).
I attached some photo as payout proof.

In sum, if you can demonstrare yourself as a profitable trader, you surely can make much more money and faster with prop firms than Darwinex.
The risk and reward is advantage for profitable traders when working with prop firms.
