The risk of loss in trading commodity futures, options, and foreign exchange ("forex") is substantial. CTA Introduction The Global Trend Program uses a 100% proprietary mechanical trading system to identify trends in over 40 world commodity futures markets. Through extensive testing, we have arrived at a model and portfolio set that we feel effectively balances the risks and rewards of futures trading. The model is a long-term trend following model and as such, will tend to capture price movement trends after solid establishment. All market entry and exit signals are generated by the trading system based on analysis of daily data. The Global Trend trading model is driven by the influences of "crowd psychology", or the "herd instinct" that we find present in large-scale market movements. The model has built in money management parameters to determine initial trade entry, profit protection, continual position protection using market stop orders and position sizing in the event of a larger than standard draw down.
