Copy Tip of the Week – Strategy Provider “Happy Forex”

Posted by Fullerton Markets on September 14, 2020 at 10:35 AM


Strategy Provider (SP) “Happy Forex” is the longest running SP on the CopyPip platform. He has been running his account since June 2013, a total of 7 years and 3 months.

His trades have been profitable in the past 7 years and 3 months. His year-to-date returns for 2020 is at 20.76% while the year-to-date returns since inception was 245.75%.

From the table above, you’ll notice that his return per month is very conservative, ranging from 0.50% to 1.00% every now and then. The question in everyone’s mind will be is it even worth following him?

 

From the Current SP balance, you can see that he has USD121,733.15 in his account. To put things into perspective, if he were to earn only 1% per month, he is essentially earning USD1210 per month. Having a substantial capital allows traders to take less risk since the absolute returns they earn will be acceptable. There’s no pressure to take more risk to earn 20% or even 50% per month.

Furthermore, we love that he has a low maximum drawdown of 34%. I would categorise him as a low risk trader. He also only trades 2 currencies pair, GBP/USD and AUD/USD only.

One downside from this strategy provider is that he does not apply a fixed stop loss to his trades, as seen from his trading history. This increases the risk of him trading at a loss which could cause the followers accounts to blow up. Moreover, sometimes he utilizes the scalping method in his trading strategy, which could cause a difference in the followers Profit and Loss.
