-Trading Approach ClaraVista will trade client accounts pursuant to the trading methodology that is Quadrant (the "Program"). The Program is classified as systematic and technical. Systematic traders rely primarily on trading programs or models that generate trading signals. The systems utilized to generate trading signals are changed from time to time (although generally infrequently), but the trading instructions generated by the systems being used are followed without significant additional analysis or interpretation. Technical analysis is based on the theory that the study of the commodities markets themselves will provide a means of anticipating the external factors that affect the supply and demand of any particular commodity in order to predict future prices. Technical analysis focuses on the analysis of price histories, movements and patterns on the theory that a detailed analysis of market data is the most effective means of attempting to predict the future course of prices. ClaraVista's trading approach is built on elements of trend-following and diversification. The portfolio emphasizes diversification by trading: metals, agricultural products, foreign exchange, stock index futures, energy products, and financial instruments. ClaraVista trades on both U.S. and non-U.S. exchanges which include, but are not limited to, the Chicago Board of Trade, Chicago Mercantile Exchange, New York Mercantile Exchange, New York Board of Trade, London Metals Exchange, London International Financial Futures and Options Exchange, and Eurex. ClaraVista may also trade foreign currencies, for spot and forward delivery, in the interbank market.
