Our world: The world of algorithms
When we decided to use automated trading systems in proprietary trading, so-called Expert Advisors in 2015, we decided to use MetaTrader 4. Why have we stopped trading discretionarily? Well, for us fully automated trading has three clear advantages over discretionary trading.
What exactly is an Expert Advisor?
An Expert Advisor, aka EA, is fundamentally an algorithm that enables traders to fully automate the trading of one or more financial instruments on the stock market. Fully automated means that transactions are opened, managed and closed according to an underlying trading strategy. One could also call EAs trading robots.
Which returns can an EA achieve?
And the most interesting question: can they beat 'the market' or professional and institutional Traders or asset managers? inveus not only talks about success, but also proves it over the distance. This has unfortunately become rare in the industry!
In black on white we trust...
Our prop trading live accounts at JFD Brokers, filled with our own (real) starting capital, will give you insight into the performance that our fully automated trading strategies, operated by our Expert Advisor called FX:PEA can offer.
The inveus FX:PATEA = Forex Pattern Expert Advisor
Family | Start: 1/1/2017
A classic family account, operated for the daughter. Starting with 50,000 euros, additional funds from the generous fund of family members were added and risk has been moderately adapted accordingly. This can certainly finance a complete study or start-up capital for the first independent company. In this chart, we show pure net profit, regardless of deposits and withdrawals.
Family | Start: 1/6/2017
Of course, the partner's account can not be missing in a family setup! However, the requirement should be to manage the hardly saved funds with the utmost caution. We have paid particular attention here to keeping the lot size small and adapting them to the daily event risks of the financial markets.
Friends | Start: 1/6/2017 and 1/4/2018
An account in use for very good friends. The Agreement: The account is held in the name of the friend with an online broker of our choice, so the friend retains full control of his funds. With a private agreement, which also protects the maximum risk of loss of 20% of the starting capital (EUR 50,000 and EUR 100.000), access to the account is granted. The profit is divided in half and paid out twice a year.
Junior | Start: 10/1/2016
At the end of September 2016, we launched a Junior account for the "next generation" in our family. With a starting capital of EUR 1,000 and a leverage of 1:400, the EA should pay for the classic driving license of the granddaughters 18th birthday. Maybe our EA can even manage to put the first car on top...?
kidsVESTOR 3000 | Start: 4/9/2018
kidsVESTOR is a new project from inveus trading. The project makes our FX:PATEA accessible to parents, family and friends who want to invest in their children in the long term. Our real Money prop trading account with a real starting capital of EUR 3,000 shows the performance (in profit) that can be achieved with kidsVESTOR for our next generation. More about this soon.
Scale Up 5 Mio | Start: 4/15/2018
With a starting capital of EUR 5 million in a demo account, we leave the usual account size of max EUR 100,000 and test intensively in an environment that will soon lead us to an exchange listed derivative. Here we start our strategy FX:PATEA with 13 lots and program the take profit at EUR 1,500 per trade. We only want to test the pure scaling, regardless of the demo conditions such as slippage, commissions, swaps, etc.
