The risk of loss in trading commodity futures, options, and foreign exchange ("forex") is substantial. CTA Introduction Orbits Venture, Inc. is a California corporation, registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commissions (“CFTC”) as a Commodity Trading Advisor (“CTA”) and also a current member of the National Futures Association (“NFA”). Its principal has spent a career studying and interpreting naturally occurring signals and their effects, beginning with the seismograph / accelerometer data from earthquakes. For the past 15 years, he has applied his engineering expertise to studying fluctuations in the stock markets and its effects on financial markets. Now with more than 25 years of rigorous professional experience using signal pattern recognition, risk identification, mitigation, and management, the principal has developed the “Risk Sigma” family of trading models. This “Risk Sigma” program is being offered to investors. The investment / trading approach focuses on tight risk management as the basis for seeking better than the market average growth to investment portfolios. A combination of risk management and portfolio cash allocations is tailored to be consistent with the individual investor’s resources and risk tolerance. Inefficiencies in the financial markets prevent the investor from committing to any particular investment strategy. Instead, the principal at Orbits Venture studies the ebb and flow of market actions, matching current conditions to the best strategic approach as a means for maximizing portfolios returns. In short, he has no doctrinaire perspective favoring any prescribed textbook investing or trading methodology. He employs a particular strategy only when it holds convincing evidence of succeeding in the current market conditions. The trading decision making process typically involves three often interrelated functions, namely, (1) market conditions analysis, (2) cash allocations and money management strategy, and (3) risk estimate and control. The analysis process involves examining market conditions for identifying the investment opportunities, the best matching trading approach for the conditions, and the timing and entry / exit determinations. This step is concerned with not only the “big picture” economic factors and fundamentals that develop confidence in market trends, but also the indicators and charting skills to achieve favorable entries / exits points. Cash management strategy controls the amount of leverage to be utilized in a particular trade. This naturally leads to the issue of risk exposure, and hence requires a high priority on risk control. Because risks associated with market randomness and uncertainties cannot be eliminated and investment profits cannot be guaranteed through any money management and/or risk control technique, the CTA's approach is to exercise experience and knowledge, and to continuously assess investor risk tolerance within the context of preserving capital and generating profits.
