Summary

The goal of the program is to realize long term capital growth through exposure to price trends in a diverse portfolio of commodity interests, both on U.S. and international futures exchanges. It seeks to profit from declining markets, as well as from rising markets, by using short positions.

Investment Strategy

Investment decisions for the program are computer driven using quantitative models developed by Mercantile Analytics and Trading, LLC. However, execution of trades, investment allocation and market selection is subject to the discretion of the portfolio manager. The quantitative models employed by Mercantile Analytics and Trading, LLC utilize market generated data as a means of predicting market opportunity. This data is derived directly from trading activity in the market, and includes such things as price, volume and open interest data. Investment decisions are not based on analysis of fundamental supply and demand factors, general economic conditions or anticipated global events. The program aims to maintain a balanced portfolio whereby different groups of related commodity interests are allocated similar amounts of the total risk budget. However, the program does not maintain positions continually in all markets, but rather seeks to avoid or minimize exposure in an individual market until a trend is determined to be in effect. Consequently, at certain times, the portfolio may be relatively concentrated in some groups of commodity interests relative to others.

Risk Management

Investment decisions are made within the framework of a risk management system which quantifies and limits the capital committed to each trade, commodity interest, and market sector.

   

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