    Accounts overview

    As usual, we publish the basic parameters we take into consideration when selecting the accounts to be included in our overview.
    - Drawdown and deposit exposure charts: These graphs determine the aggressiveness and the cost efficiency of the investment.
    - The rate of return chart: It depends on the deposit exposure, and it determines how conservative, moderate or aggressive a strategy is.
    - The number of closed deals, the number of profitable and loss-making deals: A significant percentage of positive deals is not always good. A manager can "sit out" loss-making positions. That is why we evaluate the trading strategy, i.e. the model applied by a manager.
    - Stop Loss and Take Profit orders: These orders set a plan for a deal, which automatically closes positions when the price has moved to a desired, pre-determined profit/loss area.

    Romanov Portfolio
    Let us start the overview with this noteworthy account.

    The account was not included in the previous two overviews due to a low rate of return. However, this month, the investment account makes a comeback, with a  current overall rate of return of 252% and unrealized profits. The deposit exposure keeps falling, while the floating drawdown is zero. Please be reminded that the account manager trades US shares, with current open positions on Facebook stocks.   

    The account may be considered for a mid-term or long-term portfolio.

    From the day we issued the previous overview, the ATM account changed: the balance doubled because of the deposit inflow. The trading strategy has been slightly modified. At the moment the account is experiencing a drawdown which amounts to 14% of the total deposits (the floating loss does not go beyond operational values). As a result, we see the overall return dropping from 272% to 220% - the account roughly reached the level, recorded on 15 October.

    The account manager uses the position averaging strategy, by increasing the volumes to faster compensate for the loss in case the price reverses. The account manager has a moderately aggressive trading style and has been working for a year.

    AvanTrader Fund > cross-hedging
    The account manager has an aggressive trading style and therefore the account is best suited for consideration by investors with a high risk tolerance. The account provides a loss protection; the maximum loss declaration is 35%, which means that if the share price at the account drops more than 35%, the positions will be closed and the trading will be suspended for five calendar days. During those days, the investors usually reconsider their choice and decide if they want to keep investing in the account or withdraw their funds.

    There are no significant changes in the indicators since last month. The overall rate of return has increased from 2047% to 2109%, the drawdown is negligible, while the deposit exposure does not go beyond 6%. The account age has a role to play as well: the manager has been working for more than two years, which does not happen frequently, as far as aggressive accounts are concerned.

    The minimum investment term is 15 days, but we believe that the account may be considered for a mid-term or long-term investment.

    ADE Group AF
    The account beats its investment sum records. Together with the ATM account, it has almost doubled its balance. At the moment the total assets are close to $100 000. The account is still number one in the balanced rating.

    Many people are likely to have spotted this account in our overviews several times, but we would like to present the details for new clients.

    An expert advisor carries out the trading according to the martingale principles, meaning that a robot, fine-tuned by the account manager, trades automatically. The martingale strategy is used, which means that the position volumes are increased in case a price does not go in the predicted direction. This approach is similar to the averaging strategy. However, under martingale, the amounts are doubled. The account owner starts with tiny lots, which allows keeping the drawdown within 5%. There are stop orders in place; this is one of the reasons the account holds the gold medal. The current statistics of the account are as follows: the overall rate of return is 32%, the total funds exceed $96 000. The trading has been temporarily stopped but is likely to continue as soon as the market provides a powerful signal.

    The account may be considered for a mid-term investment.

    fintechnology 14
    The «fintechnology» group account has returned to the top; there are already 17 «fintechnology» accounts in the rating. For the overview, we usually take numbers 15 and 14, depending on the results.

    The account has been compensating for a slight drawdown, getting closer to last month’s records. The investors did not lose interest; the account assets have been growing. The account is between the largest in the Alfa-Forex investment venue: there are 82 investors, the total funds exceed $270 000.

    Here are the indicators as of 14 November: in the two years of its operation, the account has an overall rate of return of 263% (the remuneration is not included). The overall return was reduced by a drawdown, which started last Monday. However, taking into consideration the historical statistics, one can expect a rebound in the rate of return chart. The rate of return and the floating drawdown remain standard for a moderately aggressive strategy.The minimum investment sum is $5000 and the minimum investment term is 14 days.

    The account may be considered for a mid-term and long-term investment.

    The current rate of return was largely shaped by the first deals on the investment account, which produced a return of 37% in two days. This leap influenced the drawdown, which was 15%, with a deposit exposure of 91%. At the same time the price direction forecast was correct. At the moment the account manager is following a moderate strategy and does not allow losses of more than 2% of the total deposit per trade. Moreover, the account manager uses a loss declaration of 20%, which provides a safeguard for investors. Trades are closed and opened only manually, which many investors see as an advantage of the account.

    Despite the fact that the account has been around for only 3 months, it has already gained recognition among investors. The total balance has increased to $115 000.Accounts in euro and ruble are currently available.

    The account may be considered for a mid-term and long-term investment.
