GENERAL QUESTIONSWhat is Goonder and how does it work?
What is Goonder and how does it work?
Goonder is an algorithm that selects every day the best investment opportunities in stock markets all around the world. It works through an app designed so that anyone can make money investing in the most simple and fun way.
With Goonder, you don't need any financial skills, or spend time following the financial markets: Goonder does it for you, offering you a daily selection of investment opportunities according to your profile.
The opportunities are presented in a very simple and effective way, so that you can make quick decisions. And you just swipe the opportunities right or left to accept or reject them. When you are done with the selection, you just have to decide how much to invest that day, and Goonder distributes the amount evenly among the chosen opportunities. Then, if you want, you can edit the ticket before sending the order. All the daily management (selecting the opportunities, completing the ticket, sending the order) can be done in a minute or two: less time than a quick conversation by whatsapp.
In addition, with Goonder you can forget about all the uncertainty and anxiety regarding when to buy and sell, since all the execution points (buy, sell, stop loss and maximum time) are already preset for every opportunity and sent with the order. That means you won't have to spend time following up your trades. The only thing you will have to do is watching your money grow.
The opportunities are short-term: a week in average, from purchase to sale. This way, your capital can rotate in at least 2 to 3 cycles of opportunities each month, so your money can make more money much more effectively.Goonder, are you talkin’ to me?
Goonder, are you talkin’ to me?
Yes. In fact, Goonder is an algorithm with a very particular voice. It will guide you through the onboarding process, and will offer you every day the opportunities. Goonder has a very ironic sense of humor and opinions that are not exactly politically correct about humans and about the companies in which he offers to invest, especially if they are banks. He loves to use what he calls "Goonder Translate" to decode in its own way those texts that companies use on their websites or on Wikipedia to describe their activities. He also has a strange obsession with Charlie Sheen and a complex sentimental relationship with Siri. Check it out choosing "Goonder way" in the company descriptions when creating your custom profile.Do I have to pay anything to download or use the app?

Typically yes, but only to your broker and only those that are public in its commission schedule. Trading with your broker using Goonder to choose what and how much to invest will not in any case mean an extra cost: it would be the same if you were operating with your broker by your own means.

ONBOARDINGWhat steps do I have to take to create my Goonder account?
What steps do I have to take to create my Goonder account?
When you download the app, Goonder will guide you through a series of screens so you can create your account in 4 simple steps:
How do I select my investor profile?
- Profile data: answer in which decade were you born, what is your country of residence and set your investor profile (predefined or personalized).
- Personal data: state your name, surname, nickname and mail.
- Accept terms and conditions.
- Link your account with your broker to go to Real Goonder mode, or leave it for later and start practicing with Virtual Goonder.
How do I select my investor profile?
Goonder offers you a series of predefined aspirational profiles, presented generically with the photo of a model. Enter each one of them to see its characteristics, and choose the one that most resembles you. Please note that profiles represent investor types, with no direct correspondence with the race and gender of the model that represents it. The choice of models simply seeks to reflect a diversity which Goonder firmly believes in, since the app itself is designed to break down the classic entry barriers into the investment world. On the other hand, if you think that none of the predefined profiles represent you, please click the button "Create my own profile", and quickly create your own personalized profile answering 4 very simple questions.
MAIN MENUWhat is Performance?
What is Performance?
Click "Performance" in the Home screen or in the menu bar to see how your investments are going.
In Virtual Goonder, in the tab "All" you will see your overall performance with 3 indicators: the virtual balance, and your accumulated earnings expressed in money and percentage. In the Annual, Monthly and Weekly tabs you will see your earnings of the last period. Swipe right on each of these tabs to see how you did in previous periods, and move between periods doing swipes right and left.
In Real Goonder there are the same tabs, but Goonder can only offer the theoretical performance, expressed in monetary units. There are two reasons for this: the first, referring to theoretical performance: according to market conditions, the actual execution may differ from the theoretical one (see below in the FAQ "How is the execution of your orders"). The second, referring to monetary units as the only indicator offered: the money you deposit in your broker account is confidential information, to which Goonder does not have access, according to data protection laws. For this reason, Goonder cannot include in Performance your balance or calculate the accumulative percentage of your earnings.What is the Daily Report?

What is the Magic Mode?
The Magic Mode is just Goonder's way of telling you how good he is in math. After accepting or rejecting all the opportunities of the day, you will get to a screen in which you only have to enter the total amount that you want to invest that day. Goonder will calculate the most evenly money distribution among the chosen opportunities. Since you can't buy fractions of shares, the total amount will probably not be the same you entered but the closest possible, with Goonder's "magic" distribution.What is the ticket?

Of course. After entering the total amount to invest in Magic Mode, the following screen shows you a list of the opportunities of the day (accepted above, and rejected below, shadowed in gray). Above all on the left you can see the total amount to invest according to Goonder's "magic" distribution. If you want to remove one of the selected stocks, swipe right on it, a minus sign will pop up. Click on it and the company will pass down, with the rest of the rejected opportunities of the day. And if you want to add one of the rejected opportunities, swipe left on the stock, and a plus sign will pop up. Click on it and the stock will go up with the others accepted. In both cases, Goonder continues in Magic Mode, recalculating the best way to evenly distribute the amount you want to invest. Finally, you can click on the pencil that is inside each of the accepted opportunities to add or subtract shares from it. In this case, Goonder disables the Magic Mode, so that you can fine tune the total amount to your liking.How do I send the order to the market?

BROKER MANAGEMENT (ESFERA IB)How is the execution of your orders with Esfera IB?
How is the execution of your orders with Esfera IB?
The execution is automatic according to order of arrival. This means that the first orders have execution preference over those that arrive later with the same execution point.
As for the operation of the execution points, Esfera IB acts according to the market rules.
-The IN price or execution point of purchase is a Stop Limit order. The order will be executed within a range between the indicated level and a maximum of 0.1% above. This is designed so that you do not lose the opportunity if your order is at the end of the queue and the price of the action moves upwards.
-The OUT price or execution point of sale with the expected return (a.k.a. "take profit"), is a Limit type order. This means it will be executed at the indicated price if it is reached or exceeds the increase or at a higher price if there is an upward gap in the beginning of the trading session. There is a possibility that the stock price reaches the OUT execution point but the order doesn't get to be executed because of a lack of demand. The execution of the orders is only guaranteed if the OUT level has been exceeded.
-The STOP price or execution point by stop loss: once reached or exceeded the indicated price, a sale order is sent to market, to be executed at the best available price at that moment. That is, the execution of the order is guaranteed at a price equal to or lower than the STOP execution point.
-The time execution point: if 9 days go by since accepting the opportunity, and it does not leave by OUT or by STOP, a sale order is automatically placed to be executed at the opening of the following trading session, at market price.Margin Account and Cash Account. What are the differences?
