Spectrum’s Global Diversified Program uses a portfolio of conceptually diverse computerized trading systems to trade a wide variety of global futures and forward markets across short, intermediate and long term time horizons. The program is active in 80 different global futures markets, including, bonds, interest rates, currencies, grains, metals, softs, energies, meats and stock indices. Over 50% of total exposure is in commodities. Statistical price pattern analysis is used to identify profit opportunities from trend, counter-trend and volatility characteristics of price movement. Spectrum maintains an extensive database and uses a proprietary research platform to develop adaptive filters and trade signals which are designed to navigate noisy markets. The trade signals are combined with a portfolio level risk management system. The investment goal is to provide high risk-adjusted returns with a low correlation to traditional asset classes.
