CTA Introduction

Demeter Capital Management is a registered CTA with a Livestock and Grain
Trading Futures and Options Program. The Livestock and Grain Trading Program
attempts to generate profits through the Advisor's discretionary selection of futures and options trades in agricultural markets. Trades are selected on the basis of fundamental analysis, which is concerned with any factor that would affect the supply and demand, and therefore the price, of a given instrument. The Advisor's market analysis tends to focus on seasonal trends and year-to-year comparisons. The Advisor absorbs and interprets a wide range of research on a daily basis, employing its principals's combined 40+ years of experience in agricultural futures markets.

The Key Principals of Demeter Capital Management are brothers James Hamman and David Hamman. Their father Fred Hamman was one of the first to trade the Live Hog Futures contracts when the commodity was introduced by the CME in 1967. Both brothers attended Hinsdale Central High School and received degrees from the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana. Jim received his degree in Agricultural Economics and Dave received his degree in Agricultural Industries.
