Summary

The Advisor collects daily sentiment numbers to analyze market behavior in a “bottom up” fashion in order to determine the state of market opinion and predict the likely hood of market movements based on contrary opinion. By looking at sentiment in a historical and behavioral manner of market movement back to 1964, a comprehensive database of string patterns an analysis of trade action has been created and is used to gauge probabilities of future direction.

Investment Strategy

Most trading systems employ a trend following approach, yet markets generally trade within ranges. The Advisor’s trading system attempts to determine false price breakouts and trade against them, capturing profits on a return to and within these trading ranges. Price breakouts are often identified by many systems as an opportunity to participate in a market as it moves into new territory inspired by an event either fundamental or technical in nature. When these opportunities result in false breakouts, these systems are left with losing positions long near the highs and short near the lows. The challenge lies in determining the difference between a true and false breakout. In the Advisor’s trading system, there are a number of technical indicators used to evaluate the legitimacy of a breakout. Of the indicators employed the most crucial is the link between price and consensus.

Risk Management

Risk management is the core of the dynamic Potential Unlimited Models. Since the Advisor considers preservation of initial assets paramount to producing trading results, the Advisor employs risk management techniques in an effort to reduce risk. No assurance can be given to clients that such money-management techniques will be to their financial benefit, and such techniques may actually result in lost opportunities or substantial losses. The Advisor believes that a long-term commitment to its trading is necessary for profitable trading opportunities. Although, client accounts may be closed at any time, the Advisor suggests that prospective clients refrain from opening an account unless they can commit a minimum of one year to the investment. The overall program has a proprietary set of "Global Money Management" rules that recognize losing trades and exit signals. Generally, the majority of losing trades are exited by system signals. To provide fail-safe measures and adhere to good money management practices, the Advisor’s offered programs include pre-specified stop guidelines. All losses are contained as a percentage of entry point and therefore, both programs stop trading at a 30% draw down on a closing basis.
