Short-Term Systematic (STS) Program

Minimum Investment
Management Fee 2.00%
Performance Fee 20.00%


CTS Capital’s Short-Term Systematic (STS) Program employs fully systematic strategies that have an average trade length from one to twenty days. It trades a diverse universe of futures contracts, including currencies, interest rates, stock indices, energies, grains, metals, livestock, and softs. Market diversification is maintained at approximately 50% financial contracts and 50% non-financial contracts. The trading models are applied on multiple time frames. The use of short-term models leads to very low correlation to other strategies and the rest of the managed futures industry. The strategy was traded as a component of the Diversified-II program beginning in late 2007, and then launched as a separate program in January 2009.
