Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. The risk of loss in trading commodity futures, options, and foreign exchange ("forex") is substantial.

CTA Introduction

We are a Commodity Trading Advisor focused on tropical soft commodity markets, especially coffee contracts traded on registered derivative exchanges. Based in Medellin, Colombia, we are registered with CFTC and an NFA Member. Our goal is to provide investors with exposure to the coffee markets through a specialist commodity niche investment product, which can diversify any investment portfolio. We believe that, while fundamental analysis provides an insight about key developments that may influence current and future demand and supply of futures and options, quantitative analysis of price action of these instruments provides an insight about the strength of actual buyers and sellers. For that reason, the investment decision-making process should incorporate both analysis and not be based solely on a “black box model”, nor solely on fundamental statistics and news that may be mispriced or overpriced by the markets. Our overall and unique trading strategy combines fundamental and quantitative analysis, capitalizing both approaches and making them work in synergy on the discretionary framework.
