Support donations for future projects


Our relationship is based on reciprocal care and respect. Remember that this unique platform and projects are the results of a lifetime of hard work and costly research.
In return for our free platform use, you can:

1. Invite, if pleased with your performances, other good investors like yourself to join the initiative (both for trading and for the future IPO project)
2. Make a voluntary donation of any value you like for our future projects (algorithm development and social media)

If you are making profits with our platform, we have the following minimal suggestions:
Let ΔL = Variation over 2 different dates (6 months apart) of the NetLiquidation value (as indicated in the Broker statement or communicated via API)

Our (%)
15% ΔL, if funds in account < 1 MM
10% ΔL, if funds in account < 5 MM
5% ΔL, if funds in account < 10 MM
2% ΔL, if funds in account < 100 MM
1% ΔL, otherwise

Details:

1. NetLiquidation value can be taken (by difference) from the broker's official statement. (If fund deposits or withdrawals have been made by the investor, these have to obviously separated from the NetLiquidation variation.)
2. Note that the NetLiquidation variation may obviously incorporate possible broker interests, positive or negative, and brokerage fees. This is already accounted for in our (small) %.
3. The % can be wired as a donation for future projects', according to instructions that will be provided (unless different agreements are made).
4. If we do not receive the voluntary donation or you do not help us grow by referring us to other serious investors, there will be no consequences, apart obviously from possible deterioration of the relationship.

Note that the PNL figure that is shown in real-time by the algorithmic platform does not take into account any interest or broker fees. The number that you see on the screen results from a pure computation that uses all the orders that have been executed and for which the corresponding fill events have been received from the broker. It also includes all the projected costs that you will incur by closing the current position, including spreads and commissions. Some executions, such as forced liquidations or orders that, for whatever reason, have not generated fill events received from the platform, will not be reflected in the PNL obviously (unless they are manually inserted in the list of executed orders).

Why such a low %

We can afford the best care on the planet because our friends are now collectively trading large amounts worldwide and because they are consistently profitable. For this reason, the suggested % is so small and solely based on a pure net liquidation value increase.
Note that, traditionally, hedge funds use the 20/2 rule (plus other "creative" fees). This would amount to enormous costs for the investor, who would end up paying huge maintenance fees (2% on capital, not on net gains), often for no profits or even huge losses. Why get ripped off by these greedy entities, when you can easily have all the activity transparently under your own complete control and running on your own account and on your own machines?

Why do we not claim astronomical returns, as some entities do?

Just use common sense when evaluating absurd claims. There are obvious limits to the profits that can be extracted from the market, without gambling and while pursuing long-term, consistent profits. This becomes immediately obvious when you have some actual trading experience.
Astronomical returns, if not obtained occasionally by chance or through lucky gambles, are usually the result of operations that are only superficially masked as "trading". However, they are often doing other activities, often of dubious nature, such as money laundering, fund and trade shuffling, pump and dump, Ponzi schemes, tax fraud, and other similar activities.
It's obvious, for instance, that those who are laundering money from other sources will have astronomical returns. But that has nothing to do with genuine, legit, fully regulated, and fully transparent algorithmic trading, which is, instead, what you will be doing with your platform.
Note that if you are not ready to take a drawdown ranging from -5% to -10%, there is no point in even trying our platform. That means that having to occasionally look at a PNL equal to -100K is not that uncommon for an account, say, of 2MM.
Similarly, if you expect some systematic astronomical return (as for instance 40%+ per year, say on 2M+ capital), you are probably being highly misguided by money launderers' claims and you are not understanding how algorithmic trading works.
