Investment Strategy

The Reversal Program traded by Wichler is strictly technical in nature. No fundamental analysis is used. The program does not forecast markets or price levels but participates in the markets dominate direction, either up or down. To meet our trading objective of consistent positive returns our model incorporates a medium-term reversal strategy and a short-term volatility reduction overlay (introduced in JAN '10). The program attempts to always be in the market either long or short. Under market conditions where a stop-loss is reached or market volatility exceeds the predetermined level of risk, the program remains in cash until the next entry trigger. Portfolio Composition: E-Mini NASDAQ 100 E-Mini S&P 500

Risk Management

The Foundation of Wichler’s Reversal Program is based on managing downside risk to a maximum fixed fractional amount on any given trade by using a measure of current market volatility and Wichler's proprietary trading model. Stop-loss orders are entered concurrent with market entry orders and set to quickly exit the position if the market moves against the trade.

   

Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. The risk of loss in trading commodity futures, options, and foreign exchange ("forex") is substantial.
