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

Before Dynamica, Nikhil Dhir was a portfolio manager at the Carlyle Group, where he traded a similar strategy in energy futures. Prior to that he traded energy and macro products at Macquarie Bank and Sempra Commodities in London and New York. Nik has spent nine years as a commodity trader and has had exposure to both the physical and financial aspects of the business in banks, merchant businesses and hedge funds across Asia, Europe and the North America.

The strategy aims to hold trades for between 4-8 weeks. Historically, commodity markets tend to price fundamentals in this general time frame. The majority of the risk will be directional in nature and expressed in the first 2-3 futures contract months. This ensures maximum liquidity and ease of transaction. Portfolio construction is heavily focused on long-convexity and each trade is sized systematically to limit a maximum drawdown of 15%. Margin to equity ratio is typically under 10-15%.
