January has passed, 2019 has started, and we are happy to announce that the investment strategy CenturyOne’s new algorithm generation is now fully launched. In the first month of the new track record, CenturyOne’s results ended +0,37%. The new track record will show the performance of a trading characteristic we have developed and tested for a long period of time.
The event that stands out the most during the past month in the global currency markets is the flash crash in the Japanese Yen that took place on the 3rdof January. The flash crash affected all the Yen-currency pairs but had some spill over effects on other pairs as well. The event also resulted in an increase in the level of volatility after the actual flash crash. CenturyOne’s risk management worked well, which lead to no trades taken during the event.
In this month’s Century Perspective column, we will discuss what’s behind the full launch of CenturyOne’s new algorithm generation.
