Introducing the DARWIN Correlation Test

25 September 2015

Fancy knowing what DARWINs are correlated to each other? Wait no more! Introducing the new Darwinex Correlation Test.

Let’s look into our friend Integracore2’s DARWIN PLF to gain a better insight into the new correlation feature.

1. The correlation matrix

Snip20150925_38

As you can see in the screenshot above, a new “Correlation” tab has been added to the DARWINs’ report. It contains a matrix with all the DARWINs that show positive correlation with the DARWIN you are reviewing.

Snip20150925_45

In our example, PLF has positive correlation with DARWINs LZL, PFL, IVH, FLP, LVO, FUI, ZUV, BMD, CNX and IQU (arranged in descending order by correlation).

2. Correlated DARWINs & DarwinIA prizes

This new correlation tool has a major impact on DarwinIA: going forward, amongst DARWINs highly correlated to each other, only that with the highest level & D-Score will be eligible to participate in DarwinIA. Now, what does too highly correlated mean exactly?

  • If a Provider submits 2 DARWINs with a correlation higher than 0.5, only the one with the highest level & highest D-Score is eligible for DarwinIA.
  • If 2 Providers submit DARWINs with positive correlation higher than 0.7, only the DARWIN with the highest level & highest D-Score is eligible for DarwinIA.

Further to our PLF example, the second row of the correlation matrix shows which of the correlated DARWINs are currently eligible for DarwinIA’s prizes this month (PLF, for example, is not eligible for DarwinIA because it has a 0.98 correlation with LZL, which has a higher level & score than PLF).

Correlation is re-calculated on a daily basis, so the fact that a specific DARWIN is not eligible to take part in DarwinIA today does not mean that it won’t be eligible tomorrow!

3. Comparison between two DARWINs

Right below the correlation matrix, you’ll find a search box.

Just type any DARWIN’s ticker to find out if it’s correlated with the DARWIN you are reviewing.

The table on the right shows an in-depth comparison between the 2 DARWINs (which one has made more trades, which enters the market first, etc.).

Also, the chart below the search box shows the evolution of the correlation between two specific DARWINs.

We hope you like this new feature! As always, feel free to get in touch at info@darwinex.com for feedback & support.

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!
