Program Description: Oil Trading & Introductory Oil Trading Programs

 

The following is a description of Conover Investments Oil Trading Program and the Introductory Oil Program. The exact nature of the Oil Trading Program and the Introductory Oil Trading Program are proprietary and confidential. The following description is intended to be general. Generally, both the Oil Trading Program and the Introductory Oil Program trade the same commodities with the same expiration months with the same entry and exit points. The difference in the programs is that the Oil Trading Program allows notional funds, may trade additional positions (i.e. use more leverage), and clients are charged management and incentive fees. On the other hand, the Introductory Oil Program does not permit notional funds, requires an actual deposit of at least $10,000, and clients are not charged management or incentive fees but are charged a flat $200 per month per each contract/unit traded (i.e. generally one contract/unit per each $10,000 deposited).


The Oil Trading Program and the Introductory Oil Program use a discretionary approach to futures trading. These programs have been continually enhanced over the years to a point where it usually trades once per day and only in the ICE Brent Oil market. However, at times it may be necessary to trade WTI Crude Oil on Globex or to trade more than once per day. The programs do not typically trade options and do not typically trade on foreign exchanges. All trades are initiated and liquidated on the same day and no overnight positions are ever maintained, unless extraordinary circumstances are encountered in the markets such as position limits being met (i.e. Futures Commission Merchant (FCM) declares bankruptcy, terrorist attacks, etc.). The decision to trade is based upon historic performance but primarily relies upon the previous day’s market prices and related short term trading patterns. After the close on any given day it is known as to whether or not a trade will be initiated on the following business day. It is possible that several days may pass before a signal to trade is received. Stop orders are utilized after initiating a trade. Placing stop orders will not necessarily limit losses to the intended amounts since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders at the requested price. The market is monitored very closely to make sure that no extraordinary events occur and thus adversely affect the position. By applying this disciplined short term approach risk is limited to a specific time frame during the trading day with no exposure to the overnight markets. Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results. The risk of loss in trading futures, options and off-exchange forex can be substantial.


Conover Investments trading model is primarily embedded in technical analysis. Technical analysis is based upon the theory that a study of the markets themselves will provide a means of anticipating the external factors that affect the supply and demand of a particular commodity in order to predict future prices. Technical analysis postulates that the marketplace itself represents the collective judgment of a larger number of traders and analysis concerning the value of any particular commodity interest. By analyzing market characteristics (as opposed to underlying economic forces) that have not yet been directly reflected in price levels, it may be possible to predict future price moves. Furthermore, technical analysis generally holds that, irrespective of basic economic forces, markets have dynamism of there own which is wholly outside the scope of fundamental analysis that should be reflected in any trading approach. Accordingly, technical analysis generally focuses on a detailed study of such data as actual daily, weekly and monthly price fluctuations, trading volume variations and change in open interest, as the most effective means of attempting to predict price movements. Technical traders frequently utilize charts and computers for analysis of these items, including a series of mathematical measurements and calculations deigned to monitor market activity for the particular trading strategy. Trading recommendations are based on signals generated by charts, manual calculations or computers. Technical trading approaches may incorrectly analyze the effect of various market forces or price trends, particularly as technical analysis is typically based on historical market activity. Such analysis may not in fact be applicable to the current markets (which many perceive as undergoing rapid and significant changes) and may be of little use when fundamental factors, particularly unexpected occurrences, such as certain governmental interventions, dominate the market.


Although there can be no guarantee that trading will be successful and that clients will not experience losses, Conover Investments strives to provide superior returns and to minimize draw downs. Conover Investments conducts continuous research on both existing and potential strategies and market opportunities in the futures markets. Conover Investments investment objective is to achieve substantial returns and diversification along with low correlation to the general equities markets and an improved risk/reward profile. Conover Investments main goal is to create consistent returns on a monthly basis while keeping draw downs to an absolute minimum. Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results. The risk of loss in trading futures, options and off-exchange forex can be substantial.
