Why Darwinex?

6 June 2014

What does “Darwinex” stand for?

Our name pays tribute to Charles Darwin – first man to get evolution: the process whereby life grows fit to survive the challenges that face it.

Evolution is slow, but unstoppable. Big & mighty Dinosaurs once ruled the Earth… until they didn’t.

It’s not 100% clear why (meteorite? climate change?), but the world changed faster than dinosaurs could adapt, so they disappeared.

But not all life failed! Seemingly small and vulnerable, but agile creatures fought and struggled, and the fittest survived to send e-mails like this!

 

 

What’s evolution got to do with independent forex trading?

EVERYTHING! You see a meteorite hit financial markets 20 years ago!

Before, only employees of financial corporations could trade. Today, online, millions of independent brains like YOU challenge Goldman Sachs & Co. for trading profits.

Sure, some stick to Jurassic thinking. All they see is “retail traders”. Since your wallet is small, they treat YOU like a mentally inferior. They offer “get rich, quick” shortcuts, 1000:1 leverage, social trading…) and play other clever tricks (re-quotes, slippage, etc.) designed to keep your money, because that’s all they see in you.

At Darwinex, we see TALENT

We know that BIG talents start out with small wallets: users like KlondikeFX, ForexBao beat the market month in, month out – and the best part is that their profits owe NOTHING to luck! By detecting their Investable Attributes our algorithms explained their long-term performance long ago!

We believe in financial market evolution. That’s why we’ve developed algorithms to diagnose talent, offer raw DMA spreads second to none, and why we asked the UK’s FCA to certify that we NEVER trade against our independent traders. It’d be JURASSIC to bet against the evolution of financial markets!

All of which makes you the missing link: fancy teaching Jurassic thinkers that you’re way more than a “retail trader”? If you’re committed to your evolution as a trader, our eco-system has much to offer. KlondikeFX & Co. know.

If you joined, together, we could teach the world financial market evolution!

 

Wouldn’t that be DARWINEX?

Darwinex Trading Hours for the 2019 Christmas & New Year Holiday Period

Please find below the Darwinex Trading Schedule for the 2019 Christmas and New Year Holiday Period. All times are displayed in UK time (GMT) and changes to regular trading hours are highlighted in red.

Christmas is around the corner!

Please find below the Darwinex Trading Schedule for the 2019 Christmas and New Year Holiday Period. All times are displayed in UK time (GMT) and changes to regular trading hours are highlighted in red.

Also note that during the Cristmas and New Year holiday period spreads may widen and swaps may be affected by the ‘turn’ effect. The ‘turn’ effect is a phenomenon that exists in financial markets which is caused by supply and demand for funding over key dates such as year or quarter-end. This can create anomalies in the forward curves for certain currencies, and we are already beginning to see this priced into the year-end swap points that we receive from our liquidity providers.

Further, you may want to check out what happens if you want to buy/sell a DARWIN which has underlying trades open with different opening/closing times.
