Schindler Capital Management's Advisor primarily uses fundamental analysis as opposed to using technical analysis to formulate his trading decisions, with the majority of trades being in Class III milk futures. Schindler Capital Management reserves the right to trade in other agricultural and non-agricultural futures on occasion. Fundamental analysis is the consideration of factors external to the market of a particular instrument. For example, weather, imports/exports, and political events that affect the supply and demand of that particular instrument, in order to predict future prices of that instrument. Technical analysis is not based on the anticipated supply and demand of the "cash" or "physical" (i.e., actual) commodity; instead, technical analysis is based on the theory that a study of the markets themselves (in particular, of trends of prices established by the markets for various instruments during selected historical periods) provides a means of anticipating prices. Technical analysis of the markets often includes a study of the actual daily, weekly and monthly price fluctuations, as well as volume variations and changes in open interest, utilizing charts and/or computers for analysis of these items and other technical market data.
Schindler Capital Management focuses on factors that affect the supply and demand of a particular commodity which are examined in order to predict future prices. For example, some of the fundamental factors affecting the supply of Class III milk include, milk production statistics, dairy cow slaughter numbers, cost of feed and weather. Fundamental factors affecting demand include commercial disappearance of dairy end-products, dairy exports, historic and seasonal patterns, and general U.S. and world economic conditions. In addition to USDA and NASS weekly and monthly reports, Schindler Capital Management has developed a network of individual dairy farmers across the country, commercial cheese operations and pit traders that help him come up with his bias on the market. Trade volume is expected to be quite low, since this is a trend-following approach. Positions are typically held several days, and even weeks to months is not uncommon. However, there may be times when trade volume increases for short periods, such as when positions are exited or reversed due to a sudden change in the trend.
Generally, when new client accounts are established, Schindler Capital Management will need approximately two to three weeks to initiate new positions or enter markets until the account is fully invested in the program. During this period, it is possible that the performance of new accounts will vary from accounts that have already existed in the program.
