Mudrex team was hard at work through the last month hashing out improvements. We spent a lot of time adding more options for traders and publishers and improving the core functionality to build a more robust and user-friendly Mudrex. The platform saw 2 major releases and many minor ones. Below are some of the important features launched recently:
Performance Score to identify good vs bad strategies
Ever since the beginning of Mudrex, we have been plagued with a simple yet profound question that is fundamental to what we are building.
How good is a trading strategy?
We spoke to tons of professional traders, hedge fund managers, investors, and so on, eventually to realize that a globally recognized standard to measure strategy performance is to see what is the returns of a strategy for a given level of risk. A ‘Good’ strategy is one that gives you a ‘higher’ level of return for a ‘lower’ level of risk. Hence we created the ‘Performance Score’, a proprietary metric created by Mudrex, and is a measure of risk vs reward of a strategy.
The Performance Score is a number that varies from 0 to 10. The higher the number, the better the risk vs reward for a strategy. Any number <=4 can be considered as poor, 5–7 can be thought of as average, and >=8 can be thought of as good. You can read more about it here.
New Invest page with enhanced sorting
We launched Mudrex Invest in April 2020 and since then have received a lot of feedback. Some of the important things that users told us was to increase focus on live info, add the ability to sort and filter and simplify decision making. You asked and we delivered!
With the new invest page, we have shifted focus away from backtested data, increased importance of live trading, and added performance score as a simple yet powerful measure of how a strategy has been performing. Do check the new UI out!
Updating details of a published bundle
This update was focused on our strategy creators. They have been wanting to get the ability to update info, fees, etc for published bundles. The new flow helps do that in a very seamless manner. This is an important precursor to bundle upgrade as well, a feature we will be rolling out next week.
9 new indicators
Indicators are at the base of any strategy on Mudrex. Sometimes, users need custom indicators so that they build different kinds of strategies. We keep adding indicators to our list, and last month, have added 9new ones this time. Some of them include:
- McGinley Dynamic Indicator
- Wilson Relative Price Channel
- 4 MACD
- Elliot Wave Oscillator
Adding an indicator is super easy for us. Send the script of the indicator you want to us firstname.lastname@example.org and we can take it from there.
Over the next month, our focus is going to be on increasing flexibility for creators. We have a power-packed month up ahead with loads of features being released! Below are some of the exciting things the team is working on over the next month
- Bundle Upgrade
- Importing third party signals to Mudrex
