The strategy is an automated trend-following system working on the 4 hour timeframe using indicators on the Daily chart as a filter. It is based loosely on Elliott Wave theory, in that a set of indicators has been designed that draw EW patterns to give buy and sell signals so, when timeframes coincide, trades are taken and managed manually.

There is no repainting, no Grid trading and no Martingale. It can directly generate buy/sell signals at market and stops are placed close to recent Highs/Lows. Profit targets are calculated and placed. If there are signs of a potential short term trend reversal, the system will generate an exit signal regardless of profit or loss. Day to day volatility can be quite high.

There was no trading during the blank months. Monthly data verified by FXBlue from a different broker. Assets Under Management $6m.

Minimum investment: $10,000
Maximum expected drawdown: 20%

This strategy trades only Gold. It sets the maximum amount of open trades at one time, the triggers for the trades being set from Fibonacci retracements. Although using Martingale, the likelihood of large drawdowns is reduced by pausing trading for News items, if the Average Daily Range exceeds a set amount, or if price gaps are anticipated.

Trade sizing is very low and trading style is intraday scalping with occasional trades closed the next day. The strategy has a max equity cut with a max position feature so that drawdown and exposure can be managed effectively.

There was no trading during July 2022. Monthly data verified by FXBlue from a different broker. Assets Under Management $600k.

Whilst Martingale systems are not usually offered due to the possibility of large and sudden drawdowns, the safeguarding filters provide strong protection. WITH A MARTINGALE STRATEGY, INVESTORS OFTEN WITHDRAW PROFITS REGULARLY UNTIL THEIR ORIGINAL INVESTMENT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN.

Minimum investment: $20,000
Maximum expected drawdown: 30%

The funds in this category cater for clients who are willing to occasionally see the equity of their account fall by up to 30%. Thus an account could have a Balance of $20k with an Equity of $14k, or an account with a Balance of $20k could reduce to a Balance of $14k. In both cases, the trader would expect to recover the account and resume growth.
