We're excited that we were selected as finalists under the "Forex" category for the 2018 Benzinga FinTech Awards in NYC. Here's just one example of why our Forex trading technology is being highlighted.
In January 2018, Tradagon kicked off a pilot with a Private Swiss Family Office based in Europe. The fund piloted our fully automated BCalc Forex-Sterling Strategy, which has historically shown to extract consistently high returns from GBPUSD. This is one of Tradagon’s most exciting strategies, since it can capture huge upside from a traditionally non-directional asset.
The pilot program involved Tradagon delivering tradable signals based off of our BCalc Forex-Sterling Strategy, without actually exposing any of the strategy or “secret sauce”.
This particular Swiss-based firm has a long history of trading the Pound Sterling, so it was validating for us to be a part of the pilot and showcase the power of Behavioral Calculus in the Forex markets.
Our BCalc Forex-Sterling Strategy, is a fully automated, moderately active strategy with an average holding period of 10 days, long or short, for this particular use case. The average downside for all trades is -0.9% and the average upside 1.7%, for a 1-to-1.8 risk/reward ratio.
The pilot has concluded and results were favorable, as highlighted below.
Over the past four months, the strategy outperformed and delivered unlevered returns of over 10%, and 30% levered 3x (which is lower than the standard risk taken in the currencies market).
Below shows a performance snapshot of the signals (long and short) and equity curve. The top portion shows the buy/sell signals (yellow = Long and blue = Short) and the bottom portion shows the equity curve.
Thanks for reading,
The Tradagon Team
