The Directional Markets Strategy is fully systematic and invests in up to 100 global futures and forward markets. A statistical approach with a daily feedback system based on forecast quality is used to determine the signal (long or short) as well as position size. With 250 trading days a year and 100 markets, this produces 25 000 forecasts a year, which is statistically significant. No technical analysis is used. The better the forecast quality the more trust is put into the forecast, and the more aggressively the target weights per market are adjusted. Due to the mechanics of the daily forecasts, the system is adaptive to changing market environments and can switch between short to long term as well as trend following and contrarian. The strategy targest a return of 15-20% p.a. with a volatility of approximately 10% p.a. Analog execution technology delivers no market price impact and high strategy capacity. The model exhibits on the long run significant more upside with less downside than other CTA's / managed Futures programs.
