Program Description

We have utilized a number of proprietary algorithmic based methods to systematically trade very liquid contracts such as the E-Mini S&P and Treasury Note Futures and also the EURO / USD Forex pair in a separate program. These contracts have been selected as they can generally be traded in significant numbers without the risk of slippage impacting on the viability of the methods being a major concern.

The methods used are varied in their approach so as to not rely too heavily on any one method, create somewhat of a portfolio effect as well as take opportunities in different time frames and phases that may occur in the market. While these may be complex methods to explain in simple terms the methods may include but are not limited to trading counter to the recent trend in areas of anticipated retracement, entering in the direction of a previous trend following a retracement and trading what are seen as breaking through an area of anticipated support or resistance.

We trade both long and short using the same reasons and have no bias the long or short side in our algorithms. These methods are generally short term in nature with the majority of the trades occurring over a one to three day time frame although there will be some trades that last longer. The methods used will see the program trade relatively actively aiming to take modest profits and losses on short term trades.
While the methods are systematic in nature we may choose to modify the methods we use from time to time and reserve the right to suspend trading or reduce overnight risk if we are of the opinion that there is an unusually high risk, for example in a time of extreme market turmoil for reasons such as a significant World or economic event.

Trading programThe 'High Liquidity' Futures program is based on a minimum capital of $50,000 and that has been set aiming to provide a fair balance of returns and risk as a percentage of that however many clients use notional capital to reduce the upfront investment. For private clients with no other accounts to cross margin to we would like to see a maximum of 50% of the capital being notional however experienced investors with multiple accounts often cross margin to other accounts to make more efficient use of their funds.

Trading programThe 'Transworld Forex' program has a minimum capital of $25,000 and is a more aggressive program that does not use notional capital. In some cases we may be able to accept less than the $25,000 minimum at some Forex Firms. Please enquire to clarify where we can do this.

Performance shown is after commissions, clearing fees and advisor’s fees. To December 2009 this has been calculated on a pro forma basis in the same manner from a proprietary account. From January 2010 customer accounts have been traded and the composite monthly calculations and invoicing done by Futures Accounting and Compliance LLC.

Investors should be aware that past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Trading futures and options involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. An investor must read and understand the current disclosure document before investing.

Please read our disclosure document for more comments about the risks relating to trading and the use of notional capital.
