Ginkle DAX Predator Retail
What is Ginkle DAX?
Ginkle DAX is an automated trading system or Expert Advisor that analyses and executes trades on the German DAX index. Ginkle DAX runs on the popular MetaTrader4 terminal for brokers that offer a DAX CFD instrument and a MetaTrader4 interface. It uses an algorithm (The DAX Predator) which is designed to generate yearly ROI trading only the German DAX. Ginkle DAX does not need supervision and is perfect for running on a Virtual Private Server (VPS). Ginkle DAX was developed because there was a personal desire by the author to automate his DAX algorithm so that less time was spent behind the computer monitoring the market.
What is so special about Ginkle DAX?
- Unique because it allows and uses per-broker optimization
- Drawdown goals can be set via broker optimizing parameters
- 100% hands-off solution for serious investors
- The only product available for profitable trading of the DAX CFD
- This product should only be used for trading the Germany 30 DAX CFD
- In the retail version the Broker_MMTU parameter is not available and only minimum lots are used
Just like a real predator Ginkle DAX waits for an opportune moment to strike.
The EA is not a short term strategy, it does however use short term signals to detect reversals. It connects to the 15 minute DAX chart and makes decisions based upon (among other things):
- ATR & MAs
- Strength of trend (support / resistance)
- Short term volatility (e.g. news spikes)
- Short, Medium and Long term Price Action
It is a passive algorithm which is expected to catch three or four big moves per year on the German DAX index while taking smaller profits and draw downs waiting for those moves.
Serious Broker Optimization
Most strategies fail because they try and implement a "one size fits all" algorithm and apply it to the market. Ginkle DAX does not and offers an already optimized set of Broker parameters for a variety of brokers, and the option to further fine-tune the strategy or optimize for new brokers. There is no one-size fits all when trading the DAX. Differences in margin requirements, swap, price quotes, trade times etc. makes optimizing on a per-broker basis essential and ensures long term profitability regardless of which broker you are currently using.

What kind of returns can I expect? Terms and Conditions restrict us in making any claims. We advise you to demo the product yourself and view the results. We can however say with firm certainty that trading the DAX Predator algorithm manually, we have seen consistent yearly returns. Now with the automated version of the algorithm we expect to even improve these results because we can operate non-stop on the German DAX without human supervision. Backtesting the EA shows an average (*) P/DD ratio of 10:1 meaning for every one percent of draw down 10% of yearly ROI could be generated. Disclaimer: these results do not guarantee future live performance. Returns are broker dependent and broker parameters must be fully optimized initially and re-evaluated every three to four months to match the ever evolving market, just like you would trading manually. We are happy to help with your optimizations. Ginkle DAX comes with preloaded parameter sets for selected brokers.
