Composition

Summary

This long-term trend following program identifies price patterns by using a Fractal Wave Algorithm (“FWA”), a pattern recognition system based on fractal geometry.

Investment Strategy

The system trades off of weekly price charts. The program uses a Fractal Wave System to a diversified portfolio. Turning points identified by the FWA are used to precisely define trend lines and support and resistance levels which in turn are used to calculate trading signals. The Choppiness Index, also derived from fractal geometry, is used to distinguish between thrusting and consolidating markets.

Risk Management

Managed Futures accounts are risk balanced across market sectors and within sectors depending upon portfolio size, and are periodically rebalanced to reflect changes in the volatility of individual markets. New accounts are generally eased into the markets over 2 to 3 months and are encouraged to maintain an investment horizon of at least 18 months.

   

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