Program Description: TCA Energy Spreads Program
The trading methodology of Tyche Capital Advisors is primarily technical in nature, however, fundamentals are also taken into consideration when extreme market conditions are anticipated or encountered that could affect current or potential portfolio positions. The following descriptions are general in nature as the techniques employed in each program are proprietary.
Tyche Capital Advisors intends to trade a diversified mix of markets including primarily, Crude Oil futures utilizing mainly spread strategies. The markets traded by the Advisor will include U.S. and non-U.S. futures and/or options contracts. Tyche Capital Advisors utilizes several futures spreading strategies utilizing mainly intracommodity calendar month futures contract spreads. These spreads include nearer month contracts in addition to spreads further back in the curve as the strategy dictates.
Tyche Capital Advisors will also be trading other markets including energies, grains, or other index futures utilizing spreads, or non-spread trading strategies. Tyche Capital Advisors may also use additional futures contracts markets which Tyche Capital Advisors believes presents an opportunity for profit based upon technical and fundamental indicators. Typically, at any one time, Tyche Capital Advisors may be holding positions in approximately five (5) markets but may exceed this number as it deems appropriate.
Program Description: TCA Capital Accelerator Program
The TCA Accelerator Program primarily uses the same model as described above. However, Tyche Capital Advisors uses a more aggressive approach than with the TCA Capital Appreciation Program. Tyche Capital Advisors utilizes the same markets and contracts as those discussed above and also uses intra-commodity calendar month futures contracts spreads. The markets traded are similar to the Tyche Capital Advisors Capital Appreciation Program described above. However the Accelerator Program will take into account fundamental or technical indicators on a real time basis and will provide short term indicators.
For both Programs, Tyche Capital Advisors will use a discretionary technical trading approach. Tyche Capital Advisors reserves the right to make changes in the trading programs based upon fundamental research and information of an extraordinary nature that would be expected to influence the market, or based upon customer needs, or volatility and liquidity issues with respect to specific markets on traded by Tyche Capital Advisors. As with the TCA Capital Appreciation Program, Tyche Capital Advisors does not utilize options on futures or foreign markets, but would use these markets if Tyche Capital Advisors saw the opportunity for profit for its customers.
Program Description: Technical vs. Fundamental Trading
Futures traders typically rely on either “technical” or “fundamental” analysis, or a combination of both, for their trading decisions. Technical analysis is based upon the theory that a study of the markets themselves will provide a means of anticipating future prices. Technical analysis of the markets generally includes a study of, among other things, actual daily, weekly and monthly price fluctuations, volume variations and changes in open interest. Technical traders frequently utilize charts and computers for analysis of these items, including a series of mechanical measurements and calculations designed to monitor market activity.
Fundamental analysis, on the other hand, relies on the evaluation of factors external to the market itself in predicting futures prices. Such factors might include weather, government policies, domestic and foreign political and economic events and changing trade prospects. Fundamental analysis is premised on the concept that market prices frequently may not reflect the real value of a futures interest contract, although such value will eventually determine price levels. By analyzing underlying economic factors, a fundamental trader hopes to predict future market trends as price levels and actual value move into parity.
Tyche Capital Advisors relies on both technical and fundamental analysis. The trading methodologies employed by Tyche Capital Advisors are based upon value-level economic analysis, weight technical analysis, use of proprietary charts, and other indicators of a technical nature.
