Praus Capital Management, LLC (“PCM”) designs and executes quantitative trading strategies across a wide range of futures markets including stock indices, financials, currencies and commodities. Our aim is to take advantage of recurring market patterns, on a short-term basis, in order to produce stable returns across bull and bear markets.
Praus means power under control or strength with forbearance. It describes something that is very powerful but exercises great restraint in knowing the exact right time to act, never letting emotions dictate behavior. Praus was used by the ancient Greeks to describe a wild stallion that had been trained for war. The stallion would maintain all the power and strength it had while in the wild, but, after being trained, would embody complete self-control.
At PCM, we believe this notion is the cornerstone of successful investing. We take a patient, long-term approach to the markets and endeavor to never allow emotions to dictate trading decisions. By developing quantitative trading strategies that are based on robust statistical analysis and automating the entire trading process, we are able to take a measured, controlled approach to the financial markets.
