To what time-frame is the Artificial Quant managed account a good decision?
I would like to point out that I am speaking about investment time-frame. Because there are occasions when you would like to invest your money for a short time, but you may also save it for the education or home of your children, or for your retirement. I do not give tips either for short-term (from a few days to a few months), or for the medium and long term (from half a year to several years) investments, because I’m not an adviser. I just would like if all information would be available to those who want to open such an account.
I would like to start with the most important thing. Only those should open an Artificial Quant managed account who intend it for a long-term investment. Why?
Due to its operating principle, there are almost always open positions, because it is inherent in the account strategies. The proportion of these can be even above 10-13%. If you want to withdraw your money just in such a moment, these positions will be closed, and you can get only an amount from which their values are deducted. This can take even the net return of up to half a year in a moment. So, in this case, this account can bring a positive return only in an investment time frame of a year or over a year.
Of course, there might be times when the value of open positions is zero, or near to it. These can be monitored either on the public accounts or on your own. You can see this moment on the myfxbook statement when the red and yellow charts meet. If you track your own account through MetaTrader, when the values of the Balance and the Equity are the same, so there is no difference between them. The current value of the difference is always shown summarized below the list of trades. There may also be a moment when this value is positive. You may even win in this case.
The account is automatically closed anyway when the total amount is withdrawn. However, if you withdraw only the profit, or if your withdrawal is not higher than 50% of the account balance, and at least 3000 EUR remains there, in that case the open positions are not terminated right away, but will nicely be closed when the system would close them anyway. Trading will therefore be continued with the remaining amount.
