Systematic Equity Indices Large-Cap
-Trading Description: The SYSTEMATIC EQUITY INDICES LARGE-CAP PROGRAM looks at anomalies between the major cash stock indices. When the proprietary mathematical relationship model (MRM) is sufficiently bullish or bearish, we take positions in that direction using the E-mini S&P futures. Stop-loss orders are employed for risk management. Trade management is achieved by constantly monitoring the MRM for deterioration whereby we exit or reverse our positions. This technique is employed on both a day-trade and position trade basis to achieve very steady, stable returns and to minimize overnight exposure.
