Good day, comrades forex investors!
The January lull is behind, and many Pamm managers have already managed to show themselves in the new year. What kind of pammas should you invest in February? What projects are better to quit? What news influenced the market? What should investors expect? The answers to all these questions, as always, are in our investor digest.
PAMM accounts continue to attract accessibility for private investors from all over the world. In fact, the popularity of PAMM accounts during the crisis not only does not fall, but even grows. The thing is that while the country's economy is happy with stability, few people care about the prospect of additional income. But we know that traders earn equally well both on a rise and a fall in prices. That is why, during a crisis, money should work. From this review, you will learn how to create a balanced investment portfolio, and not be deceived by a dishonest manager. As usual, consider PAMM accounts of brokers: Alpari, InstaForex, Alfa-Forex and Roboforex.
The debts of private companies in Russia and China are growing rapidly. Russian enterprises are suffering from a severe recession, which is primarily due to falling global prices for raw materials and international sanctions. Given that almost a third of loans were taken in dollars, the fall of the ruble does not contribute to recovery. In January alone, the ruble fell by almost 12%, but the year has just begun! In China, things are no better. Specifically, for the period 2009-2015. private sector debt as a percentage of GDP grew by 75%. This is one of the highest rates in the world and a great threat to the celestial economy, in strength comparable only to the 2008 US housing debt.
The main commodity powers are beginning to worry about a further drop in oil prices. According to the Iraqi oil minister, Russia and Saudi Arabia are ready for negotiations on reducing raw material exports. If other nations agree to the terms, Iraq is ready to meet them. The minister also said that in the second half of 2016, prices could rise to $ 50 per barrel.

It was in the drawdown from March to June, but competent position management allows you to keep the drawdown level below 30%. We invest 10% of the deposit. Over the month, earned + 11%. The next month of exponential trade, we increase the measurement of investments to 10%.
Koal is a moderate trader. Profitability for the year - 37%, with own funds - 19%. The manager's advantage is the ability to quickly exit large drawdowns, which from time to time reach a level of 30-50%. We do not recommend investing more than 5% of the deposit.

In trading, a breakdown strategy is used, based on taking profits from the main price movement. We invest up to 5% of the deposit. For a month + 4%. Despite the increase at the beginning of the month, a very dangerous situation was observed to compensate for the martingale.
Gemmaster - PAMM's yield is 93% per year. The growth chart looks rather conservative, probably one position is being traded at a time, stops are definitely used. We invest up to 5% of the deposit. For the month -6%. Too big flights for a moderate trader.

Ao-HEDGE - + 179% for 3 months! In the management of 19% of own funds. A very fresh and promising project. The maximum drawdown level has not yet exceeded the level of 15%, which is a good result for forex trading. The manager claims that he uses a risk hedging strategy while trading instruments from different markets. We invest up to 5% for the long term. For a month + 9%. At the beginning of the month, the manager’s trading system crashed, but then he competently leveled off.
Smooth growth. USD - Over the past six months, the yield is 35%, with 3.5% of the manager’s own funds. On the account, the EURUSD pair is trading, apparently, mainly at night. Also, averaging is used in the account. What pleases, the manager is aware of the riskiness of such a strategy, as a result of which he does not trade on major news and before potentially strong movements. We invest up to 10% of the deposit. For a month + 2%. good rates and good trading for a very conservative account.
Mondays. USD - + 52% for six months and about 1% of own funds. Another account of the previous manager, but with a slightly different strategy. The trading system is based on a specific price movement on Monday, relative to previous days. A robot with martingale elements is trading on the account, so you should be aware of the riskiness of investing in this PAMM. We invest up to 8% of capital. For a month + 4%. We increase% of investment recommendations.
oyzfr1 is a very aggressive PAMM project, with a yield of 25% for 9 months and 99% of own funds. Holds the position for a long time, which is most likely part of the averaging strategy. You can invest for a long period, but not more than 5%. Over the past month, the bill showed + 44%. Crazy flights continue. The chaotic execution of operations gives good performance for the current month. Trading could be called super aggressive, but we do not have such a heading.
InvestTRADE Stability 11 - project profitability for 9 months is 86%, with 2% of own funds. The manager uses a variation on the Martingale strategy and, according to the trader, this PAMM project focuses on the reliability of the strategy. Despite the large load of the deposit, the account feels quite confident, showing a stable level of profitability over the past few years. You can invest up to 5% of capital. 6% per month. The word M is constantly spinning, I can’t remember which one)).
Microrisk-Invest - for 9 months, PAMM brought investors 22% of the return. Before the July drawdown, the project showed high rates of return, perhaps even too much. I am glad that now the bill has entered recovery, gradually gaining the same pace. A good moment to enter the drawdown, we invest no more than 5%. For the month -47%. The account is practically merged, if a miracle does not happen, we exclude it from the review in February.
EASY CAPITAL - the profitability of the project since the opening is about 49%, with 3% of its own funds. Despite the very recent start, the project has already attracted many investors. The account most likely uses a variation on the averaging strategy. You can invest up to 5%. For a month + 15%. The bill grows like a palm tree with bananas for monkeys.
1366933 PAMM-INVEST Instaforex - This conservative trader earned 125% over 9 months, with 37% of his own funds. The manager presumably trades on news surges, which can explain the stable profitability chart. Holds no position for more than a few hours. Verdict: safely invest up to 10% of the deposit. For the month -5% profit. A very bad month for the manager. We are waiting for the correction of the situation in February.
Edo - over the past 9 months, the yield is 39%, with 67% of own funds. A single-currency trading strategy is used on the account, and the robot makes transactions. Most likely, PAMM's profitability will strongly depend on the seasonal trends of the EURUSD pair. We invest up to 5% of capital. Over the month, the account added 2%. Too strong flights for such a conservative score. We recommend that the manager be careful and not change his rules.
Pilaris is an aggressive trader. Since the beginning of 2015, the yield is 346%. In May, the previous benchmark yield chart gave way to less accurate activity. Presumably, the account has an automatic Martingale strategy adviser. Drawdowns reach 30%. Allowed investments of up to 10% of capital. For a month added 10% profit. Profitability is similar to December. Pretty stable manager.
Mahonin is an aggressive trader with a return of 150% over the past year and 17% of equity. The manager does not spare the deposit, and sometimes its workload is 70% or more, which may indicate a rigid averaging of positions. But, despite this, the drawdown level did not go beyond 40%, and the account has a very stable yield chart. You can invest up to 5% of the deposit. Per month added 10%. Stable, confident trade.
Sydney USD is a conservative PAMM project with 81% profitability over the past year and 66% of the manager’s own funds. This PAMM has almost 90% profitable trail, which indicates the manager’s ability to find the exact places for entries, and the fact that drawdowns rarely go beyond 15% means that the profit is taken at the earliest opportunity. Allowed size of investments is 5% of capital. Results of the last month 20% profit. In January, the manager recovered half of December's losses, which in his case is almost a miracle.
EMPIRE - a conservative PAMM project with a yield of 180%. Less than 1% - own funds of the manager, while the main shares of only two investors. The manager tries to keep the drawdown level below 10%, which is to some extent due to the use of a fixed volume of positions.PAMM can be recommended for long-term investments, up to 5% of the deposit. Profitability for the last month amounted to 5%. Stable, confident trade.
As you can see, traders are able to quickly adapt to the situation, and in the overall picture we see moderate growth. Although, the high aggressiveness of trade did not spare some accounts, once again recalling the importance of the proper preparation of the investment portfolio. In any case, the portfolio should not consist only of aggressive players, which we have mentioned more than once, and we will talk more. Choose the risks for yourself and always be prepared for the unexpected. Let's hope that in February the managers will finally enter a full-fledged working pace and decorate the review with even better indicators!
