CTA Introduction

Tactical Investment Management manages one of the longest running commodity futures trading programs in the world. Since 1981 we have systematically traded futures and currencies for a small number of institutional and individual clients. Our clients seek an aggressive long-term investment in an alternative asset unrelated to stocks and bonds.
