Brock Capital Management LLC utilizes technical trading systems, consisting of both trend following and reversal systems for the Discretionary Agricultural Program. A portion of the grain/oilseed and livestock technical trading systems also utilize a fundamental filter that will limit exposure to certain markets in the event of extreme price variance from forecasted fundamental average levels. Fundamental analysis consists of using supply and demand analysis to predict average prices for commodities over a specific period of time. By utilizing our experience and knowledge of fundamentals, we are able to combine the benefits of both systematic trading with a fundamental overlay. This unique trading approach sets us apart from other CTA's who solely utilize technical systems and from those who are completely discretionary. Such an unique trading approach has led to very little correlation between the Discretionary Agricultural Program and equities, fixed income, or even to other CTA's.

Through the combination of both technical trading systems and fundamental analysis, Brock Capital Management LLC is able to benefit from timing as well as economical directional trades. The difficulty with only using fundamental analysis is that it provides no means for timing of purchases or sales. On the other hand, focusing exclusively on technical analysis can often lead to buying at market tops and selling at market bottoms. The unique combination of a systematic approach with a fundamental overlay allows Brock Capital Management LLC to capture the majority of a trend when a market reverses. This approach has a limitation as it often will not catch the final leg of a large bull or bear move, but it will allow Brock Capital Management LLC to enter the market sooner than most other programs when the particular market reverses.Brock Capital Management LLC utilizes several technical systems for analyzing the price behavior of commodities to determine the time and price at which a particular commodity should be bought or sold. Some of these systems are designed to take advantage of longer-term price trends, while others attempt to identify short or intermediate term trends. Some methods will usually maintain a position in a particular commodity for some time, while others may experience a long period of time without a position. Given the nature of agricultural markets and the correlation among them, there can be times when limited price movements materialize for a lengthy time period. These periods of limited price movements can at times be followed by periods of substantial price movements, which the Discretionary Agricultural Program is designed to capture.
