I'm an algorithmic trader and quant. I have a lot of experience in building strategies, portfolios and researching markets. I pay particular attention to risk control and diversification.
My style is portfolio trading. I use more than ten diverse strategies (breakout, momentum, mean-reversion) combined into a portfolio. The strategies are based on three basic models and diversified using various parameters and financial instruments. Such a style allows creating portfolios with specific expected values of maximum drawdown, diversification level, profit/risk, volatility of the equity curve.
Portfolio trading has advantages over trading with only one strategy. Such trading has a lower drawdown; smaller leverage is used. A portfolio is better adapted for trading in different market regimes and has lower yield volatility.
1. A few days ago I sent for review and approval a new version (1.819) of the EA. Unfortunately, I still have not finished the news filter. I'm developing a good solution that will allow testing any news events on different markets (not only Forex).
What's new, How to update the EA: https://belkaglazer.com/en/belkaglazer-en/whats-new-en
I have made some changes to the set-files. The latest set-files can be downloaded anytime from my website.
Also, I have made changes in configurations of my portfolios. The latest settings/configurations of my portfolios are provided through PM.
I have decided to exclude the 2-Market[MR][PCh][v1.778][NY_CloseTrading]_GBPUSD_M1.set from my portfolios. Since summer 2017, this set-file has not brought me any profit. Read more on the 'Comments' tab of the Product.
The market industry is arranged in such a way that a retail trader has no chances to earn money. The retail trader must run with all might to just stand still. A lot of lies, a lot of garbage... It's impossible to find 'true' information and knowledge using which you can make money in the long term. Most retail traders do not have the knowledge in mathematics and probability theory, how the market works, how to research market. People without experience take an unreasonable risk, and most lose their money. Look how many around systems that use Martingale, grids...
I wanted to create a product that would help a retail trader to earn. In such a way I wanted to make the World better. I set an affordable price. I helped traders. Yes, most think that I'm crazy.
So it turned out that now I am rethinking this concept.
But I would not like to upset traders I have been communicating lately and who were ready to purchase the product but did not have time.
So I've set the previous price for 3 days. Only for 3 days.
I will switch off the EA today due to the Christmas holidays. During this period, reduced levels of liquidity are expected, which may result in wider spreads. This may result in significant slippage (especially for NY_CloseTrading strategy) when opening or closing trades. If there will be open trades I will manually close it at 22:30 (20:30 by GMT).

The United Kingdom Election is set to take place on Thursday the 8th of June.
It is a strong and rare exogenous news event. Such ‘tail’ events affect the strategies randomly in the short term. The liquidity providers may limit their liquidity. It can lead to the widening of spreads as well as potential increased amounts of slippage.
Therefore, I’m going to switch off the NYClose_Trading strategy on June 8th.
I will also reduce the trading volume (lots) in 2 times for other strategies on June 7-8th.
