CTA Introduction

The Bayou City Capital Fund was started in 2000 to explore an option-selling strategy utilized with natural gas storage facilities. The Fund began with friends and family assets and originally, the Strategy was utilized over various asset classes, including natural gas, crude oil, and equity markets. Bayou City Capital began focusing solely on the S&P 500 for the Trading Strategy in 2004, which is based upon these premises:

1.) Markets can be Volatile
2.) Markets are Uncertain
3.) Sustained Predictability about Market Direction is Not Possible

The Bayou City Capital Fund capitalizes on the premium market by Selling Options (receiving Premiums). Following the sell of an option, Bayou City’s profitability is determined by the extent, or amount, of the premium the Fund is able to retain. Premiums received can be eroded or eliminated due to market fluctuations. Therefore, Bayou City Capital employs strict hedging strategies in an attempt to mitigate this erosion.

Over the last 10 years, the Fund has developed risk metrics and parameters to shape its option positions. A 3rd party, Liquid Holdings out of New York, provides real-time daily monitoring of the Fund's positions and ensures compliance with these proprietary risk limits.
