This post should be framed in gold.And while we're at it on the 12,000 Likes. I'm outright thinking that's bs as well. There's enough YouTube videos out there that show people how to cheat on likes. The proof for me really is activity. 12,000 people like a page, and yet there is no activity from those people at all.
Furthermore, a hedge fund wouldn't stumble on your site and want to use a newcomer out of nowhere that nobody's ever heard of and only has 12,000 self induced likes on Facebook and a backtested robot. If anything, they would offer you an amount that you literally could not refuse and you would be working for them. Furthermore, I'm in the industry, I'm not impressed by the language you use or your terminology as I can see through it. Hedge funds, or any fund for that matter doesn't shop out. They own. They have their own fund managers, their own methodologies, their own algorithms.
If anything, any relationship you have with them would be inverse to what you are saying. You would be marketing to bring money to them, they wouldn't be looking at your as a source of trading.
As well, contrary to popular belief, they are heavily regulated by government bodies. There is a fiduciary responsibility for them to disclose their relationship with you with their investors, as you are an outside entity of their organization. Hedge funds don't operate in the same structure as mutual funds, where everyone has a right to now. Hedge funds can keep third party discussions more direct with just their investors. And that's primarily because an investor with a hedge fund has far more better access to the investment manager than one would have with just your run of the mill fund family. Any Tom, ****, Harry, and Sally with her stupid dog can open up a mutual fund account with $250. But not everyone has the $500,000 liquid cash to play in that big money game.
So when Mr. Moneybags is dropping a million bucks into a hedge fund, you better believe he's having a direct conversation with the manager. He's not just looking at numbers and charts and backtesting. He wants to know where his money is going and why it's going there. And I can't believe for a moment that the investment manager would say, "Hey Mr. Moneybags, no worries, I found this sharp kid on Facebook. You should see his backdated testing! It's off the charts. He's only 11 trades in and in the money, but no worries. We're completely confident that this kid will round out the diversification we need to have your money make some serious money."
So let's just call it what it is at this point. You're a young ambitious kid with lofty goals. And those are very good attributes to have as you need balls, guts, and the ability to market yourself to succeed in business. However, business today isn't fueled on pipe dreams and facebook pages. It is still all about the relationship. If you cannot connect with your market, you don't have a market. At least not one that will continue to buy from you again and again. And to have a lasting relationship you have to lead with trust. Without it, you are nothing. And by creating a false image for yourself is not going to lead to trust and understanding that would ultimately lead to your success in business.
I would have just as well have you told me that you're a young kid, who's excited about his new venture, and can't wait to get it off the ground. For if it truly is a viable business, your success would first come through your results in trading. At that point, you probably wouldn't even care to put up a website unless you were merely trying to generate an additional revenue stream to allow you the opportunity to trade less for income and start to trade to build more capital. For it's only when your money is making money and you are living off of that can you ever consider yourself retired.
Your business model isn't trading. It's developing a brand to sell a robot for $40. And unfortunately, you have decided to base the introduction of new relationships on lies and deceit.
I'd start over if I were you and do it right the next time around. Because look at the negativity you've already generated. You are better than that. You have a tremendous amount of ambition and you have time on your side from your youth. Now go and get it the right way. Maybe then I'll actually feel I have something to learn from you.
