Managed Futures - Chaos Cruncher

  1. 1. Commodity Trading Advisor Chaos Cruncher Presented by Quant Trade, LLC
  2. 2. Risk Disclosure Statement The risk of loss in trading commodity futures contracts can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. You may sustain a total loss of the initial margin funds and any additional funds that you deposit with your broker to establish or maintain a position in the commodity futures market. Past performance is not indicative of future results. We recommend that you learn more from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) or the National Futures Association. Trading Securities: In considering whether to trade in securities or enter into any such transaction, you should be aware that trading in securities can be extremely risky. You should be prepared to lose all of the funds used for trading in securities. You should not fund your security trading activities with retirement savings, emergency funds or funds set aside for purposes such as education or home ownership. Trading in securities can also lead to large and immediate financial losses. Trading in securities requires knowledge of the securities markets. Trading in securities require in-depth knowledge of the securities markets and trading techniques and strategies. In attempting to profit through trading in securities, you must compete with professional, licensed traders employed by securities companies. You should have the appropriate experience before engaging in the trading of securities. All losses are your responsibility. Hypothetical Risk Disclosure Statement: "Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. In fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results."
  3. 3. What are Managed Futures? Managed futures are futures positions entered by a Professional money manager for clients. These managers are known as commodity trading advisors (CTA) or commodity pool operators (CPO). Managers can invest in a large number of markets, including: › Energy (Crude, Unleaded Gasoline, Natural Gas, etc…) ›Agriculture (Corn, Wheat, Soy Beans, Live Cattle, etc…) ›Currencies (Euro, Yen, Swiss Franc, Canadian Dollar, etc…) ›Equities (S&P 500, Dow, Nasdaq, Russell 2000, and others) Managers use a variety of trading methods depending on their expertise. Most of these are fundamentals, technical analysis, arbitrage or algorithmic. In many cases it is a combination of some or all of these.
  4. 4. Why Managed Futures Managed futures add real diversification to a portfolio: Futures represent potential hedges against such factors as business cycle movements and inflation or deflation risk. CTAs often target many markets using multiple strategies. CTAs can buy and sell futures, write or purchase options, and speculate in bull or bear markets. They do not need to pursue a single view as a bull or a bear. Foreign exchange and financial index futures allow for global diversification without the need for a fine-grained focus on several thousand stocks or bonds worldwide. By their very nature commodities are dependent upon global factors. These characteristics make managed futures diverge from major markets, unlike certain hedge fund strategies.
