Trading Strategy


A trading strategy is a fixed plan that is designed to achieve a profitable return by going long or short in markets. Our trading strategy has defined assets to trade, entry/exit points and money management rules. It is indeed the case that poor money management can make a potentially profitable strategy unprofitable. The development and application of Managed Forex trading strategy followed eight steps: (1) Formulation, (2) Specification in computer-testable form, (3) Preliminary testing, (4) Optimization, (5) Evaluation of performance and robustness, (6) Trading of the strategy, (7) Monitoring of trading performance, (8) Refinement and evolution. Managed Forex offer one managed forex account option applying the strategy outlined below.

Started in January 2014, the system from Managed Forex trades on several strategies with very strict parameters to control the risk (maximum number of trades, partial closures, breakeven). The primary mandate of the system is trading in markets with strong trends in short term time frames (the main strategy is "volatility breakout"). In addition to the primary mandate, it contains a secondary strategy focusing on scalping and ranging retracements applied using candle-stick pattern identification techniques. This bi-strategy approach endears the system to take advantage of both volatile and flat markets in an attempt to ensure a progressive equity curve under all market conditions.

Rest assured that our strategy is safe with stop loss applied with each trade, no martingale or no grid techniques are utilised.

Target Returns


Managed Forex performance to date has been robust and reliable. We offer a sustainable, profitable approach to investing in the Forex market. The aim of our invested funds is to maintain our >7% gross* monthly average.

Gross* average monthly return does not include our performance fee.

Risk Management


The first consideration for an effective risk management strategy involves what is known as "position sizing." As the name implies, position sizing consists of determining what size of position you are going to take on a particular trade when an opportunity presents itself. Managed Forex take a more simplistic approach and trade a certain lot size. This allows us to calculate risk based on an absolute draw-down in terms of the pip (percentage in point).

The second key risk management consideration has to do with managing trading risk once a position has been initiated. Managed Forex employ stop loss orders placed immediately after initiating a position as an effective way of limiting risk that might arises from trading losses.

Investors can expect a maximum draw-down of 20% when investing with Managed Forex, we believe that in terms of risk this is acceptable given the overall risk/reward ratio of our strategy. Clients have also the "equity protection stop" which is set in $dollar terms inside the broker client area. This ensures client cannot lose more than a predetermined finite risk amount.
