Futures Truth Programs: SAM 101, MS4, MS4 Institutional

 

Futures Truth has been tracking and developing trading systems since 1985. A natural outgrowth of this is to offer programs which trade a number of these systems. The Futures Truth Company methodology is based on results from this extensive research. Commodity traders generally rely on either fundamental or technical analysis, or a combination of both techniques, in making trading decisions. Fundamental analysis looks at factors external to the trading market such as general economic factors, anticipated world events, and supply and demand factors in order to predict future prices. A technical trading system, in contrast, normally generates buy and sell signals based upon a study of actual daily, weekly and monthly price fluctuations, volume variations and changes in open interest, utilizing charts and/or computers for analysis.

 

Managed Futures Program: SAM 101

The SAM101 program is offered as a single strategy with an investment level $200,000. The methodology is short term in nature and utilizes counter trend and momentum analysis. Positions are held for an average of two to five days. The portfolio’s targeted return to risk ratio is estimated to be two to one. The objective is to deliver returns of approximately 15 to 20% per year with a targeted drawdown of 10 to 15%.  Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results.  The risk of loss in trading futures, options or off-exchange forex can be substantial.

 

Managed Futures Program: MS4

The MS4 program is a group of four proprietary trading strategies that primarily utilize technical analysis. The program was developed through extensive computer research and analysis of chart patterns. The MS4 program is a system that incorporates a portfolio of diverse mechanical trading systems in futures and options in futures. The program could be characterized as a system that incorporates trend and counter-trend strategies or systems. Futures Truth Company reserves the right to override the system at any time as it sees fit or as warranted by adverse market conditions. The methodology is short term in nature and positions are held an average of two days to two months.

 

Managed Futures Program: MS4 Institutional

The MS4 Institutional has a lower targeted return and risk parameter.

 

Managed Futures Program: AA5

The AA5 program is offered as a single strategy with an investment level $200,000. The methodology is short term in nature and utilizes counter trend and momentum analysis. Positions are held for an average of two to five days. The portfolio’s targeted return to risk ratio is estimated to be two to one. The objective is to deliver returns of approximately 15 to 20% per year with a targeted drawdown of 10 to 15%.  Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results.  The risk of loss in trading futures, options or off-exchange forex can be substantial.

 

PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS. NO REPRESENTATION IS MADE THAT AN ACCOUNT IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE RESULTS SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN IN ANY OF THE PERFORMANCE RECORDS IN THE DISCLOSURE DOCUMENT.

 

General Description

All programs utilize technical trading techniques that generate buy and sell signals with a money management overlay system. Futures Truth Company believes that this money management system utilized on a diversified portfolio of contracts and systems is the most effective way to control the risk of trading futures. The asset allocation process is a dynamic process that requires constant review. Assets are reallocated on a periodic basis as Futures Truth Company deems it necessary. The Programs will target an acceptable draw-down and desired return based on the investor's investment criteria and size of the investor's account. The investor's investment criteria include investment goals, desired volatility level, market diversification, and acceptable risk. However, there is no assurance that investment criteria can be achieved.

 

Markets Traded

The Futures Truth Company Programs trade a number of US exchange traded futures contracts. This includes but is not limited to futures contracts such as: Financials, Currencies, Stock Indexes, Precious Metals, Grains, Meats, Metals, and Cotton. The programs do not trade options or futures on foreign exchanges.

 

Account Size

The minimum account size recommended by Futures Truth Company for the SAM 101 Program and the SAM AA5 Program is $200,000, MS4 Program is $500,000 and the MS4 Institutional Program is $1,000,000. The money management system is not as effective and cannot be utilized in the same manner on smaller accounts. Futures Truth Company reserves the right to accept smaller accounts and accounts that are notionally funded. If an account’s equity reaches forty percent (40%) of its original equity (plus additions, less withdrawals) at the close of trading on any business day, Futures Truth Company will liquidate all open positions in the account and will stop trading activity in the account. Of course, there can be no assurance that all open positions can be liquidated without  sustaining further losses or that Futures Truth Company will be able to limit losses through this or any other trading policy.

 

To minimize losses, Futures Truth Company has adopted a trading policy of risk management. Although the CTA intends to follow this policy, as a matter of overall trading strategy, it reserves the right to modify this policy, in whole or in part, without notice to the client. The decision to modify this policy rests in the sole discretion of the CTA and this may not be applied to the same market conditions in a consistent manner. In short, the CTA will use diverse analytical tools and disciplined money management techniques to trade the Program. No assurance can be given that the Futures Truth Program will produce profits for the client’s account. Since the trading methods utilized by the CTA are proprietary and confidential, the above discussion is of a general nature and is not intended to be exhaustive.

 

Research continues on trading techniques. It is facilitated by use of a large and sophisticated commodity testing facility. Systems may be tested using everything from “tick-by-tick” data to daily and weekly market action. The improvements are incorporated into our basic programs as they are developed.
