Hi! This is just what I don't want to get involved with: the cousin Joe-s...
Can a manager hide the signs of Martingale or other dangerous strategies on their charts? How can I defend myself from not being tricked?

I used to have an off-road bike tto, a CRF 250! Man it was great fun!

No, it's usually pretty tell tale, unless they are using multiple strategies that include martingale etc. It may be more difficult to figure out what's going on then (via only the graph), but usually this isn't the case. This is where communication comes in though, and knowing shouldn't be a problem. Look at some of these guys and observe how they describe what they're doing

http://www.currensee.com/leaderboard

I don't advocate currensee because I simply don't know enough about them and if they are truly legit, although, the traders/managers seem to have their marbles together. I feel a bit more comfterable putting money with them, then with the majority of the peeps here. Putting your money in a coffee can under a tree in the back yard is also a good place for it. So...due diligence always.

KTM has some wicked offroad bikes I wish I could have - like the 300xc. I'm a sucker for two-strokes. Honda's CRF line is amazing, that 250 had to be a sick outfit as well. Damn.

Hi, my advice is to put small amounts on PAMM accounts where you can track their record and see what performance they really had instead of viewing nice performance charts or false claims.

Good luck.

That is a nice find, Clash, thank you! By first sight they seem to know well what they're doing.

It is also a good idea to invest into several PAMM accounts and experience... may be a bit expensive way to study the different options imo.

I found an interesting blog on this topic here: http://managedaccount.blog.com/

I haven't had the time to read it all through yet though, but it seems to contain some really good articles on managed accounts.

Yeah Clash, two-strokes... they even smell differently!! How could one not love them!! :D

Hi all! Just a little update here for those who are curious.

After having investigated the several possibilities and managed account service providers, and having read some relevant posts I plan to start an investment with Perfecto FX.

The blogger (his blog I linked above) shares his experiences and reviews the different services in a very objective way and his posts suggested me to contact Perfecto FX. I have been changing e-mails with them for a week now, they have been very helpful and proved to be very professional. Not only do I plan to start an investment with them but I'm also thinking about joining their Partnership Program as well. They offer some serious commissions!!!

The requirements I took into consideration: protected capital, see-through operation, overall control over the investment and professional services like their website and their customer service.

Hey, I am starting to be very enthusiastic now, haha :D

Cheers, Chris

Hi CBrider,
when I was younger I have ridden a few Kawasakis, yaaa, was a cool time man.
Ok, trading a couple of years now I found out for me that there is NO Holy Grail, all depends on market action and the various systems only depend normally to an single behaviour, so you have Greens and Reds all the time.
So what I did is to reduce the risk by my pyramid. Starting with small balance and High Risk will be followed by 3 more accounts reducing the risk. Because I trade Grid + Martiangale this is essential for ongoin gain. If the riskiest account will blow up the following one or ones should be still alive so re-funding the High Risk account is no problem...l

I would like to know what is the expectation you have from a fund manager? If your target is above 20% per month then your expected outcome will fit only the wreckless trading style, which gives you almost 100% certainty that you will lose your hardly earned money. With proper money management, the good fund manager cannot guarantee you any monthly gain but usually 5% to 10% is something that can be achieved. So it does not only apply what you are looking for but what is being offered on the market ;) A good manager will not hide from it's investors his trading style but the exact strategy he/she is using (meaning step-by-step trading). Good luck!

Precise Money Management will guide you to success

Hi! I so much agree on that. Thankfully I am old enough not to be blinded by huge % profits now. Yesterday I posted my contracts and such to Dukascopy, I opened a Perfecto Premium account, the one with 50% capital protection.

Please if you have any experiences with this company share them, I still have got a week or so until the fund deposit!!

My expectations from a fund manager? Reliability, transparency, clear and quick answers if I have questions, reliable profit on the long run, no fees if they make losses. Did I forget anything? :D
