The evolution from TradeSlide to Darwinex…

11 June 2014

What happened to TradeSlide?

Many of you reached out to us asking why we changed from TradeSlide to Darwinex. Of course, we owe you an explanation.

As you know, TradeSlide was launched with a view to empowering committed traders.

During the last year, we explo​red broker-partnerships for investors to back the most skilled traders on our luck-free Leaderboard. The thinking was: a rigorously rated PAMM service for talented trader & savvy investor benefit.

Entering conversations, we knew 3 things we would NEVER compromise:

  1. 100 % legal and morally aligned incentives
  2. ​best execution for traders and investors; and​
  3. making sure investors could only replicate strategies by paying traders for their full upside.

Our conclusion has been: we cannot guarantee all three by partnering up with 3rd party brokers.

Which is why we decided to evolve to Darwinex: the trader & investor profit exchange.

What is Darwinex?

Darwinex holds both an FCA (UK) asset manager and an FCA (UK) STP only broker license.
For those who sign up at Darwinex , we already offer:

  • FCA (UK) regulated, 100% STP, low latency, conflict free execution on MT4
  • Tight DMA spreads (we’ll NEVER apply mark-ups!) for transparent commissions
  • Darwinia: a darwinian trading competition to diagnose your investable attributes (discipline, experience, risk management, timing, performance and scalability)

Darwinia Leaderboard

Darwinex is already a very competitive broker and your roadmap to improve as a trader. Shortly, we will be an investor gateway: a game-changing investment platform that will launch once your investable track-records populate it. 

We´re evolving to THE 1 stop-shop where independent traders get legally paid for trading. Which makes YOU the missing link in financial evolution.

To make the most of Darwinex, you can sign in with your existing TS username and password and link any existing MT4 or cTrader account – all brokers supported!

 If you do not have a TS username and password, just click here to link your account and have your trading strategy diagnose and analysed. It’s 100% free!

Now you know!

TradeSlide has evolved to Darwinex. It’s not only the name that has changed. We have taken a step forward to stick to our vision. The name is different. The vision remains the same: Darwinex empowers committed traders to live off their trading. Prove you are a consistent trader and we will do our best to bring you investors.

We have been notified by MetaQuotes Software Corp. that as of 1 October 2017 (Sunday), support for Windows XP, Windows 2003 and Windows Vista will be discontinued for the MetaTrader 4 platform. As potential hardware capabilities can no longer be recognised, these operating systems are considered to be outdated.

MetaQuotes has stated that Windows 7 is the minimum required operating system version for running MetaTrader 4. However, using the 64-bit versions of Windows 10 is strongly recommended.

Older versions of MetaTrader 4 will continue to work on Windows XP, Windows 2003 and Windows Vista. After 1 October 2017 (Sunday), updates will no longer be received and installers will not run on these operating systems. Without having your MetaTrader 4 up to date, you may not be able to execute trades or have guaranteed stability.

As always, feel free to contact info@darwinex.com if you have any questions or need a solution for this change!
