Chiron Currency Program

 

Typhon Capital Management's Chiron Currency Program, (“CCP”), is an intraday trading program utilizing currency futures contracts, spot and forward contracts on currencies in the interbank market, off-exchange retail currency transactions, and ‘exchange for physicals' (“EFPs”) transactions on futures exchanges.


The Chiron Currency Program is a quantitative day trading strategy which seeks to determine the highest probability single-day move for a diversified basket of currency pairs. Each currency pair has a set of characteristics that are systematically reviewed, assessed, and weighted on a daily basis and then used to generate a directional bias for the next day’s trading session.

The Chiron Currency Program only trades in highly liquid G10 currencies and acts as a provider of liquidity rather than a consumer.


Independent price volatility analysis determines dynamic levels for entry, exit, and stops for each pair within a clearly defined daily risk budget at both the individual pair level and at the portfolio level. All levels are predetermined and are placed in advance and thus, not execution speed dependent. The system also dynamically reduces risk ahead of potential inflection points such as rate announcements, central bank speeches, and economic news releases.


All positions are exited daily to avoid any overnight risk.

 

Plutus Grain Strategy

The Plutus Grain Strategy is a discretionary strategy based on a combination of supply/demand fundamentals and technical analysis which attempts to define trends and/or changes in trends in various agricultural commodity markets. Fundamental analysis incorporates factors such as production, domestic and foreign demand, storage cost and availability, governmental issues, and weather, both in the United States and around the world.

The Plutus Grain Strategy primarily trades agricultural futures spreads including but not limited to corn, soybeans, wheat, soybean meal, soy oil, oats, and rice with trade allocations between the commodities based on potential risk vs. reward. Positions taken are primarily spreads:

 

Intra-commodity spreads between calendar months (example: December corn vs. March corn)

Inter-commodity spreads between different commodities (example: December soy oil vs. December soybean meal)

Inter-market spreads between markets (example: Chicago December wheat vs. Kansas City December Wheat)

 

The Plutus Grain Strategy uses spreads as the primary source of position in an attempt to minimize the volatility of trading futures. Approximately 90% of the Plutus Grain Strategy positions utilize futures spreads.

 

Additionally, the Plutus Grain Strategy may take positions in the futures and or options markets when market conditions meet our risk parameters. The Plutus Grain Strategy does not engage in selling options short.

 

Tauros Livestock Strategy

Tauros is primarily a livestock futures trading strategy with a small grain and treasury component. It also will employ energy, soft commodities, and options on occasion. Tauros mostly uses scalping strategies to exploit short-term market aberrations, in addition to some seasonal and momentum trades. Tauros averages 1000-2000 round turns per month per million USD, but can trade as low as 500 or as high as 3500.


Tauros uses fundamental analysis for trade conceptualization coupled with technical analysis to determine entry and exit points. Exit levels are determined before the trade is entered. The Program aims to "hit and run," taking small chunks from the market many times, only when there are readily defined trading opportunities with high probability of profit.


The holding period for seasonal spread strategies ranges from a few days to a few weeks with hold times in excess of a month being rare. Flat price trades are typically entered and exited intraday, with the occasional overnight hold usually lasting less than 4 days.


Tauros sets entry and exit points with clearly defined risk before a trade is entered. Often, the Program initially enters a trade with a partial position, then adds exposure as the trade progresses.

 

Much of Tauros’s trading is intraday scalping, meaning the Program is not in the market for a long period of time. The risk/reward on these trades are usually not as high as those of longer-term trades, but Tauros executes only the highest probability trades to try and maximize the win rate. Tauros is also frequently flat ahead of major fundamental reports, and subsequently makes momentum trades following the reports.


This greatly reduces the substantial risk of a unfavorable gap against the Program that could occur due to a surprise, adverse report.


Tauros is never a net seller of options.
