Thank you for all your interest and welcome to the Perfect Portfolio Update section. Most of you have followed me on ShareChat and are aware of the leading-edge platform we are using with Darwinex. I have recently opened 2 trading strategies or "Darwins" with Darwinex, which I named the Perfect Stocks Portfolio (QSH) and the Perfect Aggressive Portfolio (QAJ). Both were created for trading in the TOP 250 largest companies on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the Nasdaq.
The (QAJ) Darwin has a slightly more aggressive approach than the balanced approach of the QSH Darwin. I am excited that both these were created in the last 2 weeks, being our first 2 flagship-Darwins for the rest to follow. Both of them have less than 9 trading days behind them and have already shown positive returns. PSP showing +2,69% return and PAP showing +4,48% over just 5 trading days. Both had the same positions in GILD and ATVI, but the PAP managed to acquire more NEM at a very good entry price. I will go into more detail about these trades in a later post.
As those of you know, that followed the Next Level Share Selection Program, that shares get selected by meeting a whole lot of criteria before being selected to enter into a trade. The positions we have in both portfolios are fundamentally and technically spot-on for meeting all the criteria and are suitable for longer timeframes.
Both portfolios are not yet open for the public to invest in. Darwinex needs at least a 31-day track record to assign a VaR (Value at Risk) rating to each Investment Strategy. (This could be seen at the Top right of each of the screenshots below) There are also many other metrics by which you can compare to each Darwin which will become available when we are open for investment. Although Darwin traders are limited in the amount of risk we can take with our Darwins, the Investors have the option to earn 3x the return by increasing their exposure through our platform at Darwinex.
For now, my main focus will be on maximizing returns for each portfolio. As some of you already know, I have sworn to eat my Hat in the 3-month challenge on ShareChat and I have committed to the same challenge this time around, except it will be 3 challenges and they are somewhat harder. I did post this on Sharechat and re-posted it on our Forum here and below is the quote from that post. "So, once again I am willing to eat my hat (or any Veil creation) if one of the following does not happen. If one of my Darwins vs. the 2800 Darwins does not make the Top50 in earnings after 3 months, one of my Darwins does not make the Top5 in earnings after 6 months, or if one of my Darwins is not Number 1 in earnings after one year.......I will eat a whole Hat...I promise. I know it's a bold statement and might seem cocky, but if I am not Bold, as with the 3 months challenge......I set myself up for failure......and besides, who doesn't want to see someone lose and eat their hat (or something really veil)!" I have since realized that there are 5200 Darwins on Darwinex against which I will compete, so it will be slightly harder. I would have to finish in the Top 1% of returns by the end of 3 months (end of August), and in the Top 0,1% of Darwins after 6 months, and ....... yeah ok..... I have this one ready for consumption.
A R60 white Mafia Hat, that I will probably never use again, and worth eating! Or maybe I'll go for the fermented Fish, Surstromning, or here. (Video is not for the faint-hearted) Darwinex holds the largest competition in the world for Traders by putting up 6 Million Euro's every month of their own money for the Top 80 traders to manage over a 6 month period. The traders get 15% of the profits made over this period. This competition has now attracted nearly 3000 of the best traders in the world, competing to manage these funds. So this challenge will be right up there with......well nothing......this should be the ultimate challenge in investment or trading.......... or it will put a sock (Hat/Fish) in my mouth. So for those that think I won't be able to do it, in any of the 3 months, 6 months, or 12-month challenge, please post in the Forum, which one (or all 3) you select, and if I succeed, you will have to eat a hat or fermented fish. Either way, there will be entertainment after each period.... It is still early days, but I know what this program can do (I work with it every day), and I have a feeling that the Aggressive Portfolio should come through for me in the end, but please bet against it.......... I dare ya! It will inspire me even more. For all those that have joined and are supporting, thank you. It has been very long hours over the past 4 months (especially the last 3 weeks) to get where we are, but it's all worth it. Please keep an eye out for the latest updates on the Forum. Trade safe Regards Quintin (Pilot)
