The Independent Trader Movement

If you are focused on continually improving performance, wanting to operate in a professional environment and potentially earn additional monies from your trading activity, then Darwinex is really a no-brainer.
Darwinex allows you to legally market your trades for a 20% investor success fee without any of the hassle involved in setting up and getting regulated for a managed accounts business. Furthermore, this is done protecting your intellectual property by never disclosing live trades and in addition, offering you a whole host of analytics, as well as access to a serious investor pool. Basically, you have a lot of upside with no downside.
Please note that we are talking about a serious platform, for serious traders, with realistic expectations. This is not something for gunslingers, get-rich-quick-aficionados and/or storytellers. You don’t necessarily have to be consistently profitable yet but you do have to have the intention of doing things the right way and the Darwinex platform offers you the possibility to do this. Furthermore, Darwinex independently rewards traders by investing their own funds backing the best strategies (current allocation is 4M Euro per month).
Advantages of registering through 50Scouts:
  • gives you the opportunity to get backed by 50Scouts funds.
  • allows you to benefit from a number of special member webinar sessions; ranging from best practices, strategy optimization, attracting investor monies and special updates from Darwinex available only to group members.

Darwin Capacity Management

Make sure you catch up on this great update from Juan on where we are at with capacity and plans for the future (he doesn’t get enough credit for the effort he puts into these sessions). The session may be a bit advanced for some but it gives you an great idea about where the movement is going and the true potential.
I hate to sound like a broken record but this is such a win/win opportunity for traders. Look out for a follow-up post with a more detailed update in the coming weeks.

Darwinex Update

Just a short post to congratulate the team, all of those who saw (and see) the potential of the whole Darwinex movement and also to try and highlight where we currently stand in terms of progress with a look at some metrics:
Top 10 Darwins in terms of Investor Capital:Top 10 Darwins in terms of DarwinIA Allocation:Top 10 Users in terms of Performance Fees:As we discussed from the start, a lot of work still has to be done but it is encouraging to see key metrics grow as the movement deals with natural growing pains.
Hopefully we will see doors opening to U.S. users in the near future, along with more updates and improvements.

Darwinex Reloaded

The next evolution has gone live… Darwinex 2.0 has finally been rolled out and with the switch to the new VaR Darwins, DarwinIA is now allocating € 4,000,000 to the top 48 Darwins every month. Another step in the right direction and a great satisfaction for those that were early adopters and believed in the movement from the start.
Despite the fact that the execution/commission/spreads are reason enough to be on the platform, successful strategies are really starting to reap the rewards of having listed on the Darwinex Exchange. With the top Darwins rapidly approaching the 1M AUM mark, the performance fees are starting to build up nicely and moving into more serious territory… you can do the math yourself; check out the ‘ALl-Darwins’ section and rank the list by AUM. Remember, you’ll get a better view with more info if  you do this after you log-in rather than through the public version of the site.
Well done to all of the 50Scouts members, it’s really great to start to see Darwins in the leader-board and the AUM starting to get traction. Remember, that being a member offers a lot more than the standard perks. For Darwin providers and Investors managing significant AUM , it’s a chance to have a direct line of contact with someone who has been playing this game for  a long time and who can hopefully pass on a wealth of knowledge and experience. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to discuss your investor portfolio and/or anytime you get a new allocation. As you can imagine, time is a limited resource so I will let you use your better judgement as to what AUM warrants a discussion.
As you explore the new site, remember that this is a major overhaul and that the guys at Darwinex wanted to get it out a.s.a.p for the benefit of all. As always, there will be small things to sort out and people with have to get used to the new interface. You might find it a bit frustrating or overwhelming at first but like at the start of this journey, those that can focus on the big things and not worry about the cosmetics are the ones that are going to stay in pole-position. Keep in mind that both life and trading tend to work out better for the ‘glass half full’ crowd 😉
