Returns ranged from 8% in November to 60% in January, with an average monthly return of 21%. In comparison, S&P 500 closed at -5.26% in January and at -3.14% in February, while PWE Capital returned 60% and 11% over each month, respectively."

MetaTrader 5 for hedge funds offers a smooth, well-maintained, and intuitive gateway for tapping into global markets while streamlining middle-office and back-office administration tasks. In addition, through the highly efficient order flow control, from desk to exchange, the platform assists the company in maintaining transparency and in conducting up-to-date performance reviews.

"As someone in the investment decision-making business, I think it is essential to invest in the right technology stack. MetaTrader 5 certainly fits our stack for multiple reasons, not least of which is for fund accounting," explained Mr. D. Kumaar. "It is encouraging to see many young developers dip their toes into quantitative trading by experimenting with MQL5 and gaining insights from the of like-minded individuals. No doubt, many of them will someday be applying for jobs at funds such as PWE Capital."

"Spreading risk across different asset classes might achieve nothing if the portfolio remains highly correlated. The net result is like putting multi-colored eggs in the same basket - they're all still in the same basket. Currency is the one major asset class that stands out. It is the one least correlated with all others."

PWE formulates investment programs for family offices, asset managers, and professional investors.
