Summary

The Advisor seeks capital appreciation of Clients’ accounts through speculative trading in commodity futures and options on commodity futures. There is no representation being made that the trading programs offered by the Advisor will be successful in achieving this goal. The Advisor currently offers the GT Dynamic Trading Program and the GT Systematic Day Trading Program.

Investment Strategy

The GT Systematic Day Trading Program utilizes trading techniques over short time frames and trades only futures, and not options. The market data is analyzed on an intraday basis with positions rarely (if ever) being held overnight. As such, the program involves “day-trading,” which involves initiating and exiting a position on the same trading day. The GT Systematic Day Trading Program relies primarily technical indicators, specifically the Elliot Wave Principle, in determining positions. The Elliott Wave Principle is a form of technical analysis used by trader to analyze financial market cycles and forecast market trends by identifying extremes in investor psychology, highs and lows in prices, and other collective factors. The Elliott Wave Principle posits that collective investor psychology, or crowd psychology, moves between optimism and pessimism in natural sequences. These mood swings create patterns evidenced in the price movements of markets at every degree of trend or time scale. The program will result on both trend following and counter trend following position.

Risk Management

The Advisor generally attempts to limit its daily risk to between one fourth of a percent (0.25%) and four percent (4%) of an account’s equity per day. However, there is no guarantee that losses will be limited to these amounts.

   

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