Trading Performance (Past Accounts)
Please note that these accounts are no longer actively being traded, but have been recorded here.
Below is a slow and steady large forex account managed from January 1st through the end of July (about 7 months). This account was managed with a combination of automated & manual trading intervention, by our head analyst, Nick Syiek. The main focus with this larger account was to return slow and steady, while keeping drawdown to a minimum. The strategy employed was a mean reversion system focused on higher time frame swing trades.
At one point, this account had reached about 20% in profit, prior to the covid-19 outbreak in 2020. The change in market conditions caused volatility to spike and ultimately led this account to decline by ~9%, and resulted in a profit of about 11% prior to withdrawing. These returns may not be glamorous, but with markets worldwide dropping by 30%+, retiring this account until more stable market conditions resumed was likely a good decision overall.
Below is a trading account Nick traded during the unique covid-19 market crash with a strategy specific to crash-like environments (high risk, high reward, volatility based). This account was much higher risk than the accounts Nick usually trades, and closed for a profit of roughly 35% in about 4 months of trading activity. The drawdown during this period was roughly 15%. Due to a switch in brokers, Nick closed this account officially 10/30/2020.Click here to view the video Nick did on this account.
An additional note about this trade: Nick initially took trades on this account on US30, which resulted in some skewed positive results. In the interest of transparency, the trades opened resulted in much larger than expected returns, due to the high levels of volatility and contract size trading this instrument.
