Demo Investment Closed in Profit

16% Return

The simulated investment in my Darwin asset has closed today with a 16% return over a 4 month period.

Investment & Darwin WET Performance

The above shows the investment period and the performance of the Darwin WET. If you had invested when the Darwin was still calibrating at the start then this would still be underwater, so a money management strategy is important with an entry and an exit to be given consideration.

I’ll be posting another demo simulation with two other Darwin Assets from different managers using an averaging model to experiment with a theory. Update to follow…

Performance Fees

The above image shows the performance fees due to be paid; because I closed this investment prior to the high water mark payment been due Darwinex retains this fee.

Fees paid are $36.04 + $295.18 for this investment period. Ask Darwinex about other fees which may be due including any other commissions or currency exhange rate differentials.

Crystallized Profit

So after 4 months the demo investment in WET has crystallized with a $10000 investment at a nett profit of $1324 or 13%

As with any investment this could have gone the other way and a max 10% loss I had in place could have been -$1324 depending on how the asset performs and how you handle drawdown. Please read through my earlier posts and ask yourself, how would you react when your investment is going down (which this did)?

Watch out for my next post with a new demo investment simulation model using real time trading records!
