SOME THINGS CAN ONLY BE EXPLAINED WITH WORDS

NEXUS is based in a portfolio of proven long-term technical strategies, operating daily in the foreign exchange market, aiming to grasp consistent returns, and limiting the expected drawdown. The long term targets of the strategy are 2% or more of monthly returns, limiting the maximum historical drawdown (DD) to 25%.

A long-term strategy means also that positions are aimed to be open for longer periods of time, taking advantage of larger trends and opportunities in the currencies markets. This longer term view means that positions are to benefit and are also exposed to some different aspects that should be taken into consideration:

Unlike short-term strategies based portfolio, the behavior of NEXUS is expected to be much more robust to different brokers, as the trades that compose the core of the expected returns are designed to capture longer term/higher returns trends. Therefore effects of smaller importance, like a spread, commission or slippage, which only occur once or twice per trade, are expected to shave the portfolio’s returns only in a marginal fashion. This is why, regarding spread, commission or slippage – assuming they remain within normal ranges – different brokers should not result in a very different performance in comparison with our Master NEXUS account.

On the other hand, as positions might remain open for longs periods, swap costs might mount up over time. True, some brokers offer positive swaps for some instruments either for the long or short side of the trades. However, considering both the short and long sides, the net value of the swap cost will usually be negative. How negative, depends not only of currencies’ Central Banks interest rates policies, but also on the specific commercial conditions the brokers themselves apply to their customers. Therefore, before you chose your broker to host your NEXUS client account, we recommend to include in your due diligence investigation to select your broker, also elements of swap costs. The general rule, regarding swaps, is that brokers with lower swap costs (considering both possible sides of the trade, long/short and also all the currencies traded at NEXUS) are better to host your NEXUS client account. Naturally that all the other aspects you consider relevant when selecting a reliable and credible broker should also govern your selection.

New coming customers might also be interested to learn that a sound sign of the robustness of the strategy is the coherence between the wealth the strategy is able to capture from the market and how this corresponds to points or “pips” gained over time. Please check the figures and charts in the next section to verify that, month after month, there’s a very strong coherence between positive returns in account equity terms and positive returns in terms of points/pips obtained from the market. A red flag of strong warning should always be raised when a positive results track record doesn’t meet also a positive pips track record. Several causes can cause this type of divergence, but one of the most common is what is called “martingale trading”, where new and larger positions are added to an already losing position hoping for a market reversal and seeking a way out of a bad trade setup, that instead of being closed at the right time by following sound trade rules, was maintained alive and with increasing relevance and risk.

NEXUS doesn’t follow also what is usually known as “grid trading”, which is a similar approach to martingale, but where new positions, opened with the objective to recover what was a bad trading setup from the beginning, have the same size of the initial position. Grid trading can be eventually a less risky strategy than pure martingale, but still encapsulates what is one of the most common flaws of simpler trading strategies, which is the approach to “add to losing positions” and thus increase risk immensely, hoping for a market reversal, instead of labeling what is a bad trade setup early in time.

Not applying martingale or grid strategies, NEXUS can apply, in certain conditions, what is called “scale-in” trades. These are trades to reinforce or compensate a initial position, depending of the way the market has developed since the initial trade was opened. The “scale-in” trades can be used to reinforce what is expectedly a already good trade setup, or to compensate a trade that, although still appearing good, has been reveled not to has been opened at the optimal entry point.

Lastly, maybe one of the most distinctive aspects of NEXUS relies on the effort placed to balance the portfolio to achieve the best possible setup in terms of long term expected return with lowest possible short term risk. This is done by taking advantage of the diversified nature of the portfolio and the possibility to remove or add sub-strategies that are adapted to market conditions. Quarterly the settings, weight and composition of the portfolio are adjusted in order diversify its risk and to continue to provide the best long term prospects possible, but with a risk exposure (measured in terms of drawdown) within strategy targets. The rebalancing of the portfolio aims to allow both peace of mind to current investors and the ability to recover, within a reasonable amount of time, to investors who, by coincidence, enter the product at one of its local peaks. The quarterly assessment is performed using in-house analytics and contrasting results of the portfolio with expectations and long-term historical limits.
