Managed account results – How should the published results be interpreted?
The content of the tables is automatically generated by the fxblue.com system. I do not know the exact calculation method, but the principle is the following:
The yield is what the robot earned with trading.
For example, the return at 5Gulden managed account is 262.9% in 900 days. It is calculated as follows: The deposit is USD 1,969.53, the earned yield is 3,400.96 USD. When we compare balance to the deposit – if deductions are not counted – we get the rate of 1969 compared to 1969 + 3400. It is now about 270%.
Fxblue.com does not deduct the withheld commission because that is not a matter of trading, it is considered as a withdrawal. Therefore, I usually compare the balances once or twice a year because this shows the results after deducting the commissions:
