CTA Introduction

Index Mechanics is a short term systematic managed futures strategy that applies dynamic risk management techniques to trade a universe of 25 index futures. Trading markets randomly.

After many years of research and market analysis, the investment team believes that the ability to predict market direction through fundamental or technical analysis is limited and risk management is a more powerful tool for producing consistent positive performance. As such the strategy is built upon the selection of a sub-set of markets to trade randomly, determined by volatility and correlation and innovative systematic money- and risk management algorithms. Providing superior risk adjusted returns, as well as downside protection when markets come down, in a consistent and controlled matter. The operandus is independent of economical/political developments since it trades purely along arithmetic parameters
