Step 4: Careerlevel

Ayondo categorize all traders in different careerlevel.

We only focus at the trader with green and blue flags, because they already reached the professional up to institutional level. These traders had a minimum of 25 completed trades in 90 days, no larger drawdown than 20,0% and at least 4,0% performance since the start of their career.


Step 5: Balance

With this option you can choose between trader using virtual or real money. It is a widely held opinion that a trader with real money tend to be less riskier than virtual money trader. Nonetheless many good traders use virtual money to keep a cool head. By this psychological trick the trader avoid thinking to much about money.

Step 6: Performance

Choose the minimum past performance of the trader you want to follow. Start with a wide range and not only focus on trader with a very high performance. More to that topic in Step 7.


Step 7:  Max.Drawdown

For a beginner very important. Many people only focus on “good performance” and not taking the risk into account. To protect your account against a bankrupt, you should not follow trader with a drawdown above 20%.


Step 8: Sharpe Ratio

Sharpe Ratio is a ratio to measure risk-adjusted performance. You won’t really need to know how to calculate all of this. Ayondo’s software will do all the work for you. Just keep in mind, a high Sharpe Ratio is better than a low one. Look for trader with a Sharpe Ratio greater than 1.


Step 9:  Num. Trades

Our goals is to find traders with a long performance record and consistent profitable results. This is intended to prevent, that the trading results are only luck. With a long performance record – at least 100 trades – it is more likely, that the trader has an edge in the market.


Step 10: Traded within the last

To detect inactive traders, set traded with the last 31 days. Using this feature you can avoid following an inactive trader in your portfolio. With the not invested money you can follow other traders and profit if they do.
