Program Description: Trading Philosophy and Methodology

 

TKC Investment Services objective is to achieve capital appreciation for its clients through speculative trading of agriculture futures on United States Exchanges. Past results are not  necessarily indicative of future results and the risk of loss in trading futures, options and off-exchange forex can be substantial. TKC Investment Services currently offers one trading program, the TKC Ag Program. The trading system is fundamental based; however, TKC Investment Services will make use of technical data in order to give the best risk/reward possible. In fact, Tommy Kent Crouch will utilize all the information possible to make decisions on transactions. Tommy Crouch believes in a good technical analysis combined with the fundamental information. Specifically, government reports, news from the exchange floor, and the economy in general all go into a trading decision. However, the trading will rely heavily on the discretion of Tommy Crouch. A decision on whether or not to act upon a trade signal depends upon a combination of technical timing and Tommy Crouch’s judgment. Stop losses may be used in association with the risk points associated with the potential new high or new low. The use of stop loss orders are at the discretion of TKC Investment Services. Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results. The risk of loss in trading futures, options and off-exchange forex can be substantial.


Further discretion can be used to enter or exit trades by measuring volatility, risk associated with a trade and to determine the validity of the setup points. Tommy Crouch has learned over his 30 plus years of trading some specific setups that occur and will utilize as many as possible when he spots the proper setups.


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, moving averages , both long and short term, relative strength index, 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.

 

The program primarily involves buying and selling of agriculture futures on United States regulated exchanges. TKC Investment Services will look to identify medium-term and long-term trends in the CME Group livestock and Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) grain futures markets. Often, TKC Investment Services will also take advantage of intra-market and inter-market spreads in the grain and livestock markets to minimize price direction and focus on the supply and demand features of the markets.


TKC Investment Services expects to trade corn, wheat, beans, lean hogs, and cattle futures, but is not limited to these agriculture commodities. TKC Investment Services will be permitted to trade agriculture futures offered on all United States exchanges.


TKC Investment Services may be involved in day trading and therefore, it can be expected that commission charges could be higher than normal. The Advisor has discretion to trade as often as is necessary if TKC Investment Services sees opportunities in the markets. Under TKC Investment Services TKC Ag Program, the average amount of funds invested for margin purposes at one time can reach 30% to 50%, however, the percentage can be lower or higher based upon the market conditions.  Furthermore, TKC Investment Services will generally increase position sizes upon reaching the next $50,000 increment. For example, if an account increases in size based on profits of $50,000 or more, TKC Investment Services may automatically increase its lot sizes to its next level pursuant to its trading program unless the client specifies otherwise.


Generally, when new client accounts are established, TKC Investment Services will need approximately three to four weeks to initiate new positions or enter markets until the account is fully invested in the program. TKC Investment Services can trade immediately if an account is opened if TKC Investment Services sees profitable opportunities. During this period, it is possible that the performance of new accounts will vary from accounts that have existed in the program.


TKC Investment Services has specific goals in mind to try to achieve on a monthly basis, and will put together all his 30 plus years of knowledge to try to achieve and even sometime surpass these goals, although it is important to note that there are no guarantees these goals will be met.
