ECB Interest Rate Decision Trading

BoC Interest Rate Decision | Will Canada be the first to adjust?

It’s time to prepare for the upcoming BoC Interest Rate Decision. Interest rates have remained unchanged across the major central banks for all of 2021. This is no surprise given how the pandemic has affected the global economy.

Analysts are again forecasting no change in interest rates at the June 2021, meeting.

Holding the Interest Rate steady like this has led to pretty flat trading during these times, with only minimal spikes in price. Traders hoping to trade these events may be left disappointed.

Interest Rate Decisions always carry the potential for colossal volatility spikes and should be considered a hazardous time to trade.

Trading Strategy Performance

Effectively Comparing Trading Strategy Performance | Darwinex Platform Tools

When comparing trading strategy performance, it can often be challenging to compare very different trading strategies accurately. A scalping strategy that trades hundreds of times a day for short periods is very different to a seasonal strategy that trades once a month.

Likewise, it can be hard to know what effect different parameters within a strategy have on performance as part of the research phase. The Darwinex Performance (Pf) Investible Attribute can help solve both of these problems.

Every trading variable will have a different effect on the performance. Different Asset Classes have different risk profiles, and as such, trades with the same volume will contribute different levels of risk to a portfolio.

This is evident when looking at the returns of bonds vs equities. An equal weighting of bonds and equities will result in the more volatile asset, equities, contributing more volatility to the portfolio.

Trading frequency is another consideration. Assuming equal trade sizes, a strategy that opens multiple daily positions will have a higher risk profile than one that opens new positions only once per month.

Although they may have the same overall return after the same period, how they each get there will be very different. The strategy with the higher frequency will have higher trading costs. On the other hand, the longer-term strategy will be in the market for longer and will be exposed to more market risk.

Understanding the differences between each strategy or variable will enable you to more accurately make trading decisions that give you the best chance of success.
