Program Description: Managed Futures Account

 

Pursuant to a Trading Advisory Agreement, clients will grant Global Ag sole discretionary authority to direct, without the prior approval of the client, utilization of the assets and funds of the client’s account in the purchase and sale of commodity futures contracts. Brokerage commissions arising from the trading of the client’s account will be charged to the account at such rate or rates as the commodity broker publishes and charges for nonmember speculative accounts, or such lower rates as may be agreed upon between the client and the commodity broker. The current minimum for new accounts is US $1,000,000.

 

David Skudder primarily, but not exclusively, trades futures on agricultural markets, primarily grains and oilseeds and the associated options on these markets. On rare occasion, Mr. Skudder trades markets other than what he considers his primary focus.

 

David Skudder is acutely aware of the “randomness” of markets. However, it is his belief that fundamentals determine the eventual movement of a particular market towards a price, either higher or lower than currently observed. It is for this reason that he relies heavily on analyzing each market “fundamentally” and developing a trading strategy to compliment his analysis. As price discovery takes place, Mr. Skudder monitors a host of market inputs that he deems very important. Some of these include energy and currency values, domestic and international freight values, underlying cash values associated with futures markets, as well as political events in both importing an exporting countries that can have a substantive effect on global trade flows. Through this constant monitoring, Mr. Skudder is keen to try and identify any changing fundamental or group of fundamentals that may possibly alter his view on price direction or the extent of the move anticipated. If changes occur he will adjust accordingly. Mr. Skudder is just as comfortable trading the futures markets from the sell side as from the buy side. Once the analysis is complete and the trend move is identified, Mr. Skudder will trade a range around price movement in an effort to maximize returns.

 

THERE IS NO ASSURANCE THAT ANY PROFIT WILL BE PROVIDED TO THE INVESTORS IN THE TRADING AS A RESULT OF USE OF THESE TRADING METHODS BY THE COMMODITY TRADING ADVISOR. No participant will acquire any rights or proprietary interest in, or have access to any of the information, data or trading methods utilized by Global Ag.

 

Markets Traded

Global Ag may trade any variety of commodity interests on either regulated or unregulated exchanges that may include, but are not limited to grains, meats, metals, minerals, currencies, financial markets indices, energy related materials and other items of food and fiber, money market instruments, and items that are now, or may hereinafter be, the subject of futures contract trading, options contracts, or physical commodities trading or derivatives or other contracts on such items or instruments (collectively “Commodity Interests”). The markets available for inclusion in the portfolio will normally be limited to sufficiently liquid Commodity Interests and may evolve over time as the requirements for portfolio balance and liquidity change.
