We are a managed futures firm based in Chicago. Our team is comprised of four people with a combined one hundred years of experience in systematic futures trading, development and integration of automated trading models, and management of futures-related businesses. SCM's trading is exclusively guided by a unique, algorithmically-based technical trading model. The model combines numerous proprietary quantitative analytic tools to determine short term price movements in global listed futures markets. All order-initiation, stops, and profit-taking levels are automatically calculated by the algorithm, which is linked to a proprietary execution platform, completely automating the trade selection, execution, and allocation process. Our principals - David Stillings, John Micklus, and Alan Handler - are long-standing industry professionals whose backgrounds include tenure at Lehman Brothers, Credit Suisse, Societe Generale, and Quadriga Superfund.
