Welcome odysseiacapital.


What happened after January 19? It appears the fund performance just collapsed for some reason - very brave to post your live myfxbook account results, but maybe not the best timing...

The "collapse" could also be called a pullback/retracement; and hence possibly a good time to join as per a comment made in the Darwin thread some time ago if my memory serves me correct.   :)

There is comment in another thread about the negative connotation with signal providers being both an IB and charging subscription.

OC does offer the option of opening of an IB account to subscribers, but it applies the rebates thus gained to lowering the subscription cost.

Specifically,
"Get an extra 7.5 USD monthly discount in our subscription by opening an account at ACY Securities (licensed and regulated by the Australian Securities and Investments commission: ASIC AFSL:403863)."
https://odysseiacapital.com/shopnexus/#myanchor2

In this way there is no conflict since the money made by the signal provider is effectively going to the subscriber via the reduced subscription cost.

Hi petersurrey, thanks for engaging and apologies for our late answer.

We had to wait a substantial time to have the thread opened for us and when the thread was finally available, we were in the middle of investigating the causes of recent underperformance and what steps to take further down the road. After we found that we had been mistakenly blocked to post in our own thread, but luckily Donna's team has recently managed to solve that, so we are now ready to post.

Coming to your question, the reality is that the portfolio was too dependent on sterling related instruments. Past sterling related instruments that have contributed decisively in the past for the positive performance are now clearly underperforming, taking several bad entries in a row, and causing a significant part of the observed underperformance. Most of it has to do with the fact that the strategies have been designed for trending prices, while the chaotic UK politic and Brexit related situation has been imposing a clear rangebound behavior.  We see these bad entries happening, but the system rules establish zero manual trading, so we have to keep our fingers away from trading.

Other parts of the portfolio (non-sterling related) show a quite robust behavior. Therefore, we are now in the phase of rethinking some core parts of the portfolio and also the portfolio building process. As we do that, it will take sometime until we get back with a more robust version of Nexus, but with the advantage of renewed knowledge provided by the recent market developments.

We'll post our developments here.

We are interested to learn about what elements influence the algo-traders using Expert Advisors to build up the necessary confidence level before commiting real money capital to automated strategies.

We hope not to be violating any policy from the forum by inviting the community to participate in a poll.

Participation is anonymous (we don't collect IPs) and we intend to share here the overall aggregated results. If there was already a previous poll covering exactly the same questions, we would be grateful if we can to be directed to it.

Participation takes only 2 minutes (1 or 2 questions) and is highly appreciated.

The poll can be accessed here:



Thank you for your participation!

GBPAUD based strategy in the NEXUS portfolio keeps being sensitive to the Brexit chaos, so we're reducing its weight in the portfolio (since we cannot, as per the set rules) touch the trades manually even if some are crying for manual intervention.

Soon, we are also planning to add some extra strategies on diversified instruments. Will update accordingly.

BoJo portrayed himself and the country as the incredible HULK, also announcing a meeting with the EU Commission President Junker to, like the Incredible HULK, break the chains with Europe. As a result, GBPAUD whipsaws spectacularly opening this Monday on a 140 pip gap down to last Fridays close, only to recover drastically in a 170 pip movement within the same candle...so a total of 310 pip movement on....no new news really. See below picture.

This very unusual price whipsaw movement has caused losses in both Nexus's GBP dependent strategies (GBPAUD and GBPJPY - this last one also whipsawed spectacularly). Once the Brexit mess is sorted out and sterling can resume a valuation based on economic and monetary prospects, Nexus GBP related strategies will resume their former and normal shine.

We've received some answers to our "Decision elements before applying real money funds to trading with a Forex Expert Advisor" survey.

We truly thank the participants who took some time to complete it but we still don't have enough participation to be able to present the final results, as we've promised.

So we've decided to step up the game one notch.

We are now giving away a lifetime free copy of our MaoriVibes EA (NZDUSD H1) that's being used in our real money MAORI portfolio. Qualify and finish the survey (now a bit longer, but still doable in under 3 minutes) and receive a free copy of the MaoriVibes EA at the end.

Go to Survey here: https://mailchi.mp/708f1381727c/forexexpertadvisorssurveydf

NZDUSD is not the easiest pair to automate trading, and therefore MaoriVibes can in fact provide an interesting, money-making risk diversification element in your portfolio. It has been working steadily and making money in our Maori Portfolio since January 2019.

MaoriVibes ExpertAdvisor FactSheet below.

If you have already replied to the previous survey call, please email us at info@odysseiacapital.com to claim your copy. If you have any issue with the survey or the EA, please email us as well.

Thanks for your cooperation!

MAORI Portfolio
« Reply #10 on: November 25, 2019, 03:18:42 PM »
So we are continuing to work in our own portfolios and also some other in partnership.

Some news to come soon.

At this time we'd like to update you on our MAORI portfolio. Maori is a portfolio of strategies running on AUD and NZD crosses H1 timeframe (apologies to all the Kiwis out there, since we've extended the Maori name to Aussie related instruments)  ;D

Currently the portfolio runs only on a set of somewhat uncorrelated AUDCAD and NZDUSD strategies. It's designed to be a diversification portfolio, since there are not so many portfolios out there based in such group of instruments.

Attached, you can see the nice equity curve evolution since January 2019, the time we implemented the current approach we have at the portfolio.

We've been quite conservative regarding possible DD. This explains the 0.81% return per month but at a 1.66% only DD.

A less conservative approach could easily place the portfolio at more than 4% monthly return with a 8% DD only.

Soon we'll be sharing extra features of this portfolio's concept.

Meanwhile, we would like to recall that our invitation to participate in our "less-than-5 minute" survey is still open and available. If you helps us in understading where do you stand in using EAs and Back/Demo testing them, at the end we will show our appreciation by offering you our free MaoriVibes EA, which is one of the core and profitable elements of our MAORI portfolio featured in this post entry.

Access the survey here and get your free, profitable MaoriVibes EA at the end (EA Factsheet attached):

MAORI Portfolio
« Reply #11 on: December 02, 2019, 01:34:25 PM »
Hi there!

Some more trades closed at our MAORI portfolio, some more pips pocketed. Over 100 pips pending, waiting for the strategies' closing decision.

MAORI moves slowly but it has been moving steadily lately...too steadily in our opinion in a world of reversal to the mean. We're not naive and we don't wish to claim any perfect ever-growing-in-line equity curve. We know that surely, sooner or later some reversal in the equity curve will happen. But isn't that the nature of trading ? Any trading ? 

In any case, we're happy if it happens later than sooner and if such reversal will not come to violate the long term equity growth slope. 

Updated MyFxbook printout in attach.

So, continuing on the last post, at Odysseia Capital, we're building up on the (good and hard) learnings we with our past portfolios and we're taking up a renewed view on portfolio management. We believe this view will be able to provide stable and sustainable profitability. In this sense, MAORI is a transitional portfolio into that view.

We will be sharing information about our approach over time. Today we would like to set out the very basic starting point of the rational.

So, we all know that trading in general (and trading forex at MT4 brokers in particular) is full of caveats and hurdles. Avid and passionate discussions about the different aspects affecting trading success likelihood are daily business at forums like this one.

All of us have participated in energetic discussions around topics like Manual Trading vs Automated Trading, long term sustainability and survival of EAs/automated strategies, emotional influence in manual trading, ability of discretionary traders to maintain a hedge, brokers meddling in trading, usefulness of Backtesting what influence, if any, should testing have in portfolio creation and management, etc., etc., etc..

These are discussions impossible to lead to any final and undisputed conclusion. It's with this somewhat frustrating, but very realistic conclusion that we tried to find a defined navigation map with a very simple purpose: hopefully to reduce the impacts - in likelihood and extent - of the negative aspects of trading and by that increase the possible outcomes of long term success or, at least, survival. We call it "Trading Framework".

In the next post we'll be unveiling some aspect of this Trading Framework.

Meanwhile, the invitation to participate in our "less-than-5 minute" survey is still open and available. If you helps us in understanding your view about using EAs and Back/Demo testing, we will show our appreciation by offering you our free MaoriVibes EA, which is one of the core and profitable elements of our MAORI portfolio.
