Northfield is a 100% systematic Commodity Trading Advisor that evolved from a software firm in 1989. Northfield's Diversified Program is an absolute return strategy that seeks to profit from both up and down price movements in the global financial and commodity markets. The Program employs a multi-system approach that participates in both intermediate and short-term time frames, with an average holding period of 9 days. Designed specifically not to be trend dependent, the Program trades a diversified portfolio of over 40 of the most liquid and transparent global markets, with a primary focus on stock indexes, interest rates, currencies and energy markets. The Program incorporates dynamic money management techniques which include automated scaling back of positions and systematic profit-taking when pre-set levels of risk are exceeded in the portfolio.
