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.
Started in January 2015, 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.
Here are a few reasons to justify why we feel ours is one of the top FX Funds globally, a “must have” strategy in anyone’s portfolio, and also why we feel that chances are high that it has a healthy future ahead:
ManagedForex Account employs short-term trading with tight stop-losses (average TPs and SLs of 40 pips). This keeps market exposure very, very low. The strategy simply sits on the sidelines waiting for trade setups to occur. In doing so it avoids much of the devastating market “chaos” that many traders inevitably get caught up in.
Small Market Footprint
No “hold and hopes” – EVER! Losses are cut diligently and either we win or we lose each trade quickly, and know where we stand until the next trade setup occurs. Investors never have to sweat through gut-wrenching long term draw-downs ever again. This makes the journey just as pleasant as the destination for us all.
Algorithmic Trade Execution
Employs an emotionless approach to trading, consisting of highly advanced computer algorithms, data mining, and machine learning (yet with a continual human overlay). The financial markets are no place for manual discretion, analysis, and human emotions.
Price Action Based
The strategy is price-action based. No technical indicator (lagging) based methodologies are required here. Trading is less “market dependent” and instead is based on volumetric and price action data, leaving it much less susceptible to “black box” trading problems and periods of prolonged under-performance.
Long-Term Strategy Focus
The core strategies focus on volatility breakouts, volume changes, and market momentum. While the markets are dynamic and always changing, all of these are conditions that always have, and always will occur in the financial markets to an almost certain degree. The strategy’s edge revolves around this concept.
The key to our strategy’s excellent risk-adjusted rates of return, are achieved via it’s risk management. Risk is continually being measured and managed on multiple different levels. It has a huge continuity plan, risk management protocol, and safety strategy built in at the foundation to mitigate against market threats.
It is constantly evolving and improving (actively managed by quants) to ensure it always stays ahead of the curve and remains well-equipped to handle an ever-changing market. New versions, programs, and strategies are always being developed, tested, and strategically deployed to improve its risk/reward profile.
