Program Description: Strategy Discussion

 

Southwest Managed Investments currently offers one trading program: the Global Diversified Program. Additional leverage is garnered by taking exposure to multiple units of the Global Diversified Program versus a single unit of the Global Diversified Program. For example, larger capitalized clients along with institutional investors may elect to invest in five unit increments, whereby the Global Diversified Program’s leverage is five (5) times that of a single unit of the Global Diversified Program.


History
In 1999 Vince Batla decided to study different time frames as it related to trend following along with volatility and risk reward studies. Upon completion of the research and development of the initial trading system, trading began in September 1999, with some modifications and optimization taking place during this period. Beginning in January 2002, the optimize version of the initial system continued trading investor funds to present.


In June 2003, minor changes were made to the system to make it less responsive to short term fluctuations. Also, in an attempt to reduce overall drawdown without significantly impacting the system’s performance, weekly data began to be utilized rather than the customary daily data utilized by most trend following Commodity Trading Advisors.

Program Description: Trading Strategy

The exact nature of Southwest Managed Investment's trading strategy is proprietary and confidential. The following description is of necessity general and is not intended to be all-inclusive. Southwest Managed Investment’s strategy is strictly technical in nature. The general trading strategy of the Southwest Managed Investments program is trend following. No fundamental analysis is used. The strategy is not based on analysis of supply and demand factors, general economic factors or world events. The Southwest Managed Investments model generates its own entry and exit signals and trades both sides of the market (long and short). The Southwest Managed Investments model is very long term in time-frame focus. The Southwest Managed Investments model attempts to locate potentially profitable performance characteristics across a wide range of markets. Approximately 27 domestic and international commodity interests may be traded. Six of these may either be long or short interest rate contracts reflecting interest rates in Europe, the US and Australia. All markets are traded with equal parameters. Southwest Managed Investments reserves the right to make adjustments in the exact entry or exit price the program uses, or to delay entry or exit on any order, in order to attempt to reduce the impact of slippage. The balance of the commodity interests followed are currencies, grains, metals, softs and energies. The program utilizes one long-term time-frame model. It should be noted that there will be times when there is significant correlation between markets within a market sector or between market sectors, possibly in an adverse direction to positions held in a client’s account. Clients of this program should be aware that this factor alone, although there are others, will lead to periods of extreme volatility and possibly very large drawdowns in an account's equity.
