Greenwave employs a discretionary global macro approach with an emphasis on G20 currencies. GCM incorporates a two step investment process. We begin with top down, macroeconomic analysis to determine the fundamental themes in which to engage. The goal is to identify the dominant drivers in the current market environment with a focus on central bank activity, political trends and geopolitical events. From this, GCM develops fundamental themes typically looking six to twelve months forward. In the second step, we employ a multi-layered quantitative process to identify the optimal timing and trade location at which to deploy risk in these themes. While themes are typically six to twelve months in duration, GCM will tactically trade around these core exposures. In addition, we will take shorter term tactical trades based purely on technical analysis when the opportunity presents itself.
Risk is measured by risk-to-stop. Location of stops are based on our proprietary measure of market volatility. The goal is to place the stop at a point that will not be elected by random noise. The greater the distance from trade initiation to stop level, the smaller the position size. Portfolio risk is measured through total risk-to-stop, which assumes no correlation benefits across positions.
