The Stock Index Option Writing Strategy writes call and put options on index futures (primarily on the S&P index but occasionally also on other indices). The strategy is designed to capture the decay of option premiums. The program sells deep out of the money options after unusual stock market movements. Option contracts are written at a sufficient distance, to allow in most cases, for the options to expire worthless. Primarily uncovered or naked options are sold (although spreads are utilized at times). White River Group may also take outright positions in the underlying futures contract. The trading strategy is mostly discretionary. Both fundamental and technical analysis is incorporated into the trading decision.
The Diversified Option Writing Program engages primarily on the "selling" or "writing" of options (puts and calls) on futures contracts in a diversified market portfolio. Currently, the targeted markets are: Crude Oil, Corn, Treasury Bonds, Euro Currencies and Gold. However in the future, White River Group may also trade a broader portfolio of commodity markets.
On some occasions, the Diversified Option Writing Strategy program may also trade commodity futures contracts outright. Many times the futures position will be initiated through the assignment or delivery of the underlying commodity futures of an option. For instance, if White River Group thinks that Gold futures prices are overbought and will decrease in value, it may choose to sell a call option on the gold futures contract with a strike price relatively close to the current gold futures price. If the gold option expires in-the-money, the underlying futures contract will be delivered and a short futures position will be held by the White River Group client.
The advisor’s trading strategy is discretionary. Although technical analysis goes into defining trading strategy, it is not the sole defining factor. Fundamental factors, including inflation view and economic indicators, are also taken into account.
Due to the volatile nature of futures contracts, White River Group intends to adhere to strict money management principles to increase the opportunity for long-term success of each trading program. Position exposure and the potential percentage loss that a client’s portfolio may incur in unfavorable market moves are continuously monitored. White River Group reserves the right to modify the investment process as market conditions require.
White River Group reserves the right to maintain significant amounts in cash, particularly when the Advisor believes a client account should follow a temporary defensive posture, or when the Advisor determines that opportunities for investing are unattractive.
White River Group’s Principal, Andreas Diessbacher, is solely responsible for managing the day to day operations, as well as its trading strategy and trade execution. Andreas Diessbacher is currently registered as an Associated Person of Andreas Diessbacher (sole proprietorship), a commodity brokerage firm.
