Strategy Description

Tangible / physical commodity futures markets are predictably inefficient. Supply & demand shocks are common and they regularly exhibit various degrees of disequilibrium as producers, consumers, and speculators attempt to maximize their gains and limit their risks. Our Commodity Long-Short strategy is designed to identify patterns of market behavior that signal an opportune time to initiate positions with the aim of capturing profitable, directional volatility in these markets as they try to find their true price. The patterns are not visible to the naked eye and can be counter-trend or with the trend. The average holding period of a trade is 9 days and the returns of the strategy exhibit very low correlation to stocks, bonds, HFs, or trend-following CTAs. Minimum account size is $500,000 and fees are 2% & 20%.
