NOW ACCEPTING NEW ACCOUNTS
In Nov 2019, we started accepting new accounts after exclusively managing a single account since March 2017 (*client1). The daily PL values that make up above charts are based on monthly notional trading levels and converted to reflect performance based on $1000 starting capital. All brokerage commissions and exchange fees have been subtracted. AlgoLab 2% management and 20% performance fees are accrued and subtracted. Some low capital accounts were paused (flat profit line in chart) to avoid risk due to excessive volatility during the pandemic crisis (March & April, 2020).
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ACCOUNTS DISCLOSURE: To reduce trading costs, AlphaEngine strategy enters new trades using limit orders. A limit order offers the benefit of eliminating slippage costs, but these orders are are not always filled. To increase the likelihood of being filled on a new position, AlphaEngine uses a trade entry algorithm which randomly adjusts trade entry prices so that all accounts are not placing orders for the same symbol at the same price. Different entry prices for all new positions may also result in slightly different profit or loss between accounts.
In addition to different entry and exit prices, AlphaEngine uses a unique method of adjusting trading volume based on your set trading level called synthetic fractional contracts. The objective is to increase trading volume as profits increase by periodically trading an additional contract which simulates the effect of trading a fractional contract. This additional contract traded is random and may result in different profit and loss comparisons between accounts.
In response to individual client minimum margin restrictions there were periods of time (ie: pandemic volatility period of March, 2020) where trading for some clients was paused to mitigate risk (see flat line in charts above).
Every effort has been made to ensure that trading is fair between accounts.
*Performance from March 2017 to Oct, 2019: This client account ("client1") was funded with $50,000 and used notional funds of $50,000 ($100,000 account value). The account was traded on a FLAT nominal Trading level of $100,000 since inception. Profits were not added back into the trading capital (non compounded). The rates of return were adjusted to reflect a monthly management fee of 2% per year of $100,000 flat nominal trading level, plus a 20% performance incentive fee charged quarterly. The Incentive Fee is charged after taking into consideration the management fee.
Performance from Oct 2010 to current : This is a range of performance from individual client accounts (see Differences Between Accounts Disclosure below).
